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.
