    Dear Leo and Kamala,

    I tried with tooth paste ,my god what a shine ,tooth paste really works well more than teeth.Thanks girls.

    Hi Heena ,for cleaning brass items try with tamarind juice,but you need lott of arm muscles.

    Glorious Toothpaste!!

    I am glad Mohana that you are so pleased:) After your morning brush, smile please:)

    Heena..........this makes me wonder. Why not try cleaning your brass with the toothpaste?? You should have no problems to get that even in China:)
    But I would be careful and try it on a small patch, maybe on the bottom of the jar and see if it works and leave it for a day to see if the surface is not otherwise affected. If you are satisfied with the result, then you can go ahead and use it for the brass.

    Pitambari

    For cleaning brass items, there is a powder available in India called Pitambari. It is available in Chennai. That does wonders

    Great:)

    Dear Heena,

    I am happy that you possess a shining brass jar now, and that too without taxing your arm muscles too much. In the process, even I have learnt something new and shall follow this toothpaste method next time I attack my brass articles:))

    as far i am with my family i can stay even in jungle but china is better than that.
    The above sentence was powerful Heena and it got to me personally. That is how even I think and moved with my hubby anywhere his work took us. I totally understand that sentiment.
    All the best.

    hi,

    just happened to see this thread, went through all the posts and your idea of using tooth paste for cleaning is new. i will try and let you know. I use tamarind and all my strength to clean my brass utensils. Kamla, i will get brasso and try it. Thanks to you all for your valuable suggestions.

    regards,
    surya

    cleaning of pooja items (brass and silver)

    "Peethambari" cleaning powder is so effective in cleaning the Brass / silver and copper materials.
    without much strain to our hands.. all the items turns as a NEW one :)
