A quite simple yet very effective solution that can be used to clean brass and copper objects is made only using lemons and salt.
To create the cleaning solution, cut a few lemons into wedges, dip a wedge into the salt and gently rub the lemon wedge against your copper or brass item.
As the lemon juice runs down the item you will see the metal surface begin to brighten.
But be sure to wipe off the solution from the copper or brass items afterward using a soft, moist cloth in order to prevent the lemon juice and salt from causing corrosion.
Another great tip to keeping your items looking like new is to polish them afterward with a little bit of lemon oil.
