Fresh Scented Paste

Brass and copper can be found in the pipes, fixtures and instruments throughout a house. When these metals tarnish they begin to turn green, not brown or gray like other common household metals. Be on the lookout for unusual colors and rough textures on brass and copper and take the time to clean them.

Use this homemade paste to clean brass or copper. Mix enough lemon juice and baking soda to form a paste. This natural cleaning solution has a fantastic scent that will keep your house smelling fresh. Wouldn't you rather have a house smell of lemons than of chemicals?
