How to clean antique brass hooks and eyelets that have turned black/

By LA Guy, Feb 10, 2016 | |
  1. Question (originally posted by @GJbass ): My White's semi-dress have antique hook & eyelets that've turned black over the course of 4 years wear. I don't know how to clean them to get their original luster back & neither does White's. They suggested sending them back to the factory or using a brass wire brush but I don't want to do either.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    You can see what the original state used to be "underneath" where the laces typically lay.

    Answer (originally posted by @benhour ): It's a quite easy procedure !! you can use a dremel and the polishing tip (maybe use one drop of brasso cleaner) and they'll look like new!! just have a steady hand and put at low rpm!
