Drawer and hardware cabinet is all the rage now as people think of ways to save the furniture. In fact, new strip and knobs are usually the first things people comment on when they walk into a room. Antique brass drawer pulls are found in many pieces of antique furniture.
While bronze is durable, its appearance can decrease as body oils, dirt and grime accumulate in the pulls. It is important to clean the brass drawer pulls with products that eliminate this accumulation without damaging the surrounding surface of the furniture. Spray-on cleaning products tend to fog a large surface, but you can mix a cleaning solution to clean the pulls in a controlled manner. Mix 1/2 cup of salt and 1/4 cup of vinegar in a bowl.
Add the flour until it forms a thick paste. Pick up a small amount of the paste with a cleaning cloth, and rub it over the brass strip. Cover the entire brass surface with a thin layer, even, of the paste. Stop using the paste on the brass drawer pulls for 10 minutes. Rinse the cleaning cloth with warm water, wring it out and wipe the paste out of the brass. Dry the brass strip with a clean cloth.
