Caring for brass - Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc and will naturally tarnish when exposed to oxygen. In a glass container, mix 1 cup of white household vinegar and 1 tablespoon of salt. Heat the mixture in the microwave until the liquid is quite warm, but not too hot to touch. Give the mixture another stir, and add your brass item. Use a soft toothbrush to scrub the item, and then let it soak for a bit.
