    I wouldn't use Brasso on a horn. In my experience, something like Autosol, MAAS, or Simichrome works much better.

    The full name of the product has been truncated. The true name is:

    Maas is my choice as well. Gotta love that lavender color.

    This thread is what I get for browsing the site without logging in - my ignore list doesn't work unless I'm logged in. But as long as I'm here, a word about those two products. Brass Brite's cleaning action is due mostly to hydrochloric acid. Brass Shine's polishing is accomplished by ammonia and petroleum distillates. They sound suspiciously like some really crappy old products that have long been available in the USA. Well, Brasso for one. Vile, nasty stuff. MAAS is good, Simichrompoli is good, Flitz is good - there are lots of better options. MAAS is the way to go. But considering the horn she's planning on putting through the process, who cares?
