You just need to do a slightly weaker solution so dilute with 1 measure of solution to 8 measures of water. Can you clean antique brass with this solution? Yes, this was actually designed for the cleaning of antique clock movements, but it works so well it is used for a variety of objects. It has been used by the antiques trade for restoring Brass for many years. Does the solution smell? As this is Ammoniated it does smell strong so this is why you should only use this in a well ventilated area. Will the Ammonia remove lacquer on brass?

    Unfortunately the cleaning fluid has not been effective on the particular brass fittings I needed it for, however I’m sure it will be successful on other items.
