So this craigslist find (Extensol desk), project of mine is coming along…
Pulled out my Elmer wood filler and my putty knife, filled the gouges, and where the veneer was coming up glued it down. Sanded the whole top, legs and 4 leafs of the desk.
Pulled out my handy dandy bottle of ketchup from the fridge and soaked 2 of the 5 drawer pulls to see what was under 50 plus years of dirt..
Wow I think its brass..
· 2 tablespoons flour
· 2 tablespoons salt
· 1 tablespoon water or Vinegar
1. Mix together into a thick paste, adding liquid as needed.
2. Spread the polish on the object in a thin layer and let it dry.
3. Once the polish has dried take a very soft cloth like a piece of felt or chamois cloth and rub the item you are polishing to make a nice clean shine. The soft cloth should be dry when you rub off the polish..
4. Rinse and rub again to burnish.
Ø Once the brass or copper item has been rubbed it should look clean and fresh but if it still is dull you can apply the polish once again and let it dry and rub it off.
Ø Brass and copper benefit from a good polishing once or twice a year.
