How to Clean Metal

How to clean metal

There are many different products on the market used to clean metal which can offer various results and only work specific metals. Priory polishes have been making cleaning products to restore metal and wood for over 20 years and we have an amazing solution for cleaning all types of metals unlike other brands. Priory polishes metal cleaner works on Brass, Copper, Bronze, Gold, Silver, platinum and most precious metals. This is ideal for use on Jewellery, antique pieces and much more as it is so easy to use. It removes all dirt, grease and tarnish with ease and restores the metal to its original lustre. Below are some helpful guides on how to use the products on each metal with videos.

How to use Metal Cleaner

The metal cleaner is very simple to use. Simply apply the product onto a lint free cloth and buff into the metal surface. Keep buffing until the tarnish has been removed. Wipe off any excess with a clean cloth and then rinse with water. Once you are happy with the results, for suitable items, we highly recommend to finish by wiping a thin coat of Priory Polishes Jade oil and this will add a protective layer to help prevent any future tarnishing. See the videos below to see how easy this metal cleaner works.

How to Clean Brass

In this video we show how easy it is to clean a Brass 19th century Chinese table top. The metal cleaner takes off one hundred years of grime with ease to show its original pattern. You can clean all types of Brass from vintage to modern by simply buffing away the years of tarnish. We do also offer a different type of brass cleaner, where you simply submerge your Brass objects into the solution with very little buffing required. See these articles on how we used this solution to clean some Brass handles and clean a Clock mechanism.

How to Clean Copper

In this video we show how to clean metal on this vintage copper plaque. You can see the years of green oxidisation and grime easily be removed with our metal cleaner to create a lovely shine. You can buff to a higher sheen if required, but as this is vintage piece, we wanted to keep some of the charm and character in the pattern.

How to Clean Silver

This metal cleaner works so easily on silver as you can see in this video. We cleaned some Victorian spoons, silver trophies and a silver coin. Again it works very easily by simply rubbing away the tarnish. This is perfect to clean silverware, silver jewellery and all silver antiques to a loving shine.

Please note with this product it is not suitable for use on jewellery with porous stones such as Opal, Pearl or Amber.
