Step 1: THINGS YOU NEED

  • Metal polish ( BRITE O in my case)

Step 2: Process

  • squeeze some paste on to cloth
  • start buffing the metal in one direction only
  • use new cloth for every piece because it tends to get dirty fast
  • finish it by wiping it with a clean cloth or tissue (without paste)

Note:

Use soap solution or IPA to clean deep seated dirt.
