Just got a steal on an antique brass bed that needs major cleaning but minimal repair. What is the best product to use for cleaning this bed??? commercial product or home made cleaner?? Any tool to make it easier...like a sander with buffing pad or something?? Want to make my $125 purchase sparkle...already picturing my homemade quilts piled high and won't mind the elbow grease necessary to do this job. Thanks all...mutti who can't remember her password!
