Redeeming The Shine – For The Base Is Metal

The name Brasso came very early into my life.    As a kid,  I had gleefully joined in my father’s love for polishing metallic objects to a high shine, be it some old coins, some partially oxidized ornamental items,  parts of his old motorbike, and what not.

It was kind of rewarding experience to see how a dull brown copper coin – and some even green with oxidation – could be brought to a glistening glow by rubbing hard with this  fascinating light brown liquid.  The shine was redeemed and the glory restored !

The smell was initially annoying, but later I almost got hooked to it.    The picture shows the packaging bottle as I knew it — that of the 1960s~70s.  Note that metallic cap.
