Luster Copper/Brass Cleaner
Luster Copper/Brass Cleaner is the fastest, most effective copper and
brass cleaner available. It will restore surface shine almost instantly. It is supplied as an odorless white cream in 8-fluid-ounce bottles with a flip-top dispenser cap.
Luster is a non-flammable, non-hazardous, non-scratch proprietary mixture which is not regulated under current DOT, IMO, ICAO, or OSHA hazard communication standards. Luster is, however, considered a mild irritant and should be rinsed from the skin with soap and water after use. Do not use Luster on lacquered surfaces because the lacquer will prevent the Luster from working.

Because Luster is considered non-hazardous as defined above, it does not require a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). However, Singerman Laboratories does provide an MSDS to help our customers use prudent care when handling this product.
Cleaners by Other Makers
Many commercial brass cleaners do not list constituents, so we can't tell you much about them. We did test several commercial cleaners, and found that Luster was quicker, easier to use, and more effective than any of them.
Also, lots of tips columns for the environmentally concerned recommend things like Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice and salt, ketchup, vinegar, etc., etc. Luster will do the job much more easily than any of these, is just as friendly to the environment, and is odorless.
One thing to watch out for is those that contain petroleum distillates. Petroleum distillates are flammable and do not contribute to the polishing action. They supposedly inhibit re-tarnishing of the surface, but this mixture does not polish very well. Doesn't smell too good, either!
Ammonia is sometimes recommended for cleaning brass. That is, of course, rather unpleasant, and it really doesn't work nearly as well as Luster.
