Brasso is the best known metal polish in the world!
It was introduced into Britain in 1905 by a representative of a company called Reckitt and Sons, who went to Australia and confirmed that a liquid metal polish there was more effective than a paste type sold in the U.K.
This man brought a sample of the liquid back to England and Brasso eventually became the household metal polish that we know today.
The Brasso recipe consists of a siliceous polishing powder suspended in an ammonium soap jelly and dispersed in white spirits.
The recipe for Brasso has basically remained the same throughout the last hundred years apart from the paste being replaced by the liquid in Australia!
Brasso can be successfully used to take minor (white) heat marks out of French Polished wooden surfaces. The fine abrasive cuts through the surface and allows the solvent into the wax and lacquer layer.
The surface should be properly cleaned and waxed after this treatment.
