How to Polish Bronzeware

Tagged As:

Polishing bronzeware the wrong way could lead to damage. Bronze is an attractive metal using a color tone that resembles dulled gold, but it doesn’t mean that your bronzeware should seem dull. Bronze is a standard and useful metal, but it is not invincible. Made of mostly aluminum, bronze is a metal that also comprises 5 to 15% of some other metal, such as tin. Polishing bronzeware properly keeps it looking beautiful for many years. Otherwise, the metal might become green, stained and weathered.

Wipe all bronzeware using a clean cloth to remove dust. Utilize a soft-bristled toothbrush to remove dust from little nooks and crannies.

Mix 1/2 cup of plain soap with 16 cups (1 gallon) of distilled water. Await the soap to dissolve entirely into the water prior to proceeding.

Dip each slice of bronzeware into the solution to completely rinse it and remove most surface stains.

Rub the bronzeware using a sterile cloth to wash every slice after dipping.

Mix 1 part calcium carbonate, white chalk, with 1 part ethanol and one part distilled water in a bowl or bucket.

Dip a cotton ball or 100 percent cotton cloth into the solution and rub it gently, in a circular movement, on bronzeware. Utilize Q-tips to polish small areas.
