I have always been a collector: old bottles, matchboxes, copper kettles, brass bells, cattle and even vintage tractors. Trouble with brass is it always needs cleaning. So I have decided to clean something every night while I am watching the television. I am not very keen on Brasso. It's smelly and I get covered in it. Do you know of an home-made metal polisher? Somebody suggested tomato ketchup, coke or even rubbing it with fur. Where can I find some fur? Hmm..
Somebody suggested that we should lacquer them after we have cleaned them. Apparently you just paint the clear lacquer on them with a brush. It's also said to be very easy to remove it if you want to do so?
You can tell your middle age when your night involves sitting down and cleaning the brasses. Well we do live five miles from the nearest beer token exchange and we have no street lamps so we can't walk to town or catch a bus. We haven't got a net big enough for one thing and there aren't any round here.
