I found a dirty plastic bag containing 6 brass drawer pulls.
They were pretty nasty — filthy dirty.
I soaked them in some granular dishwasher detergent dissolved in hot water which became discolored immediately. Then I got out the Brasso and an old toothbrush and gave them a scrub.
Now I need four more drawer pulls that go with these.
They’ll get their patina back over time minus the dirt.
Are you mellow?
