On the Yuvani Earrings
we used regular Brass polish from
the grocery store.
Add a small amount on a cloth
(we been using worn out cotton T-shirts as cloths
and that works perfectly)
We cleaned the chains of the Usha Earrings
the water,salt & lemon mixture
and then we used regualar brass polish,
on the "solid" parts.
