Brasso works by dissolution and abrasion, forming ammonia complexes with the tarnishing material, which its abrasive additive then removes easier than it would the pure tarnish. A water soluble oil then fills in the micro scratches to prevent them from immediately beginning to oxidize.

Brass: True brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. It tends to oxidize (tarnish) quickly when exposed to air, which is a major reason why most brass is given a clear coating of lacquer to prevent this condition.
Polishing: One of the best tools which provides just the right amount of oil onto metal is a "yellow" treated dust cloth. Wipe down brass with this cloth and then buff it dry with a soft, cotton cloth or MicroFiber wipe. This trace amount of oil in the cloth should not smear or discolor, especially after buffing.
History: Brasso has been in use for over 110 years, and originated in Britain in 1905, after a representative from the company Reckitt and Sons brought a sample of liquid metal polish from Australia. The polish grew in popularity in England, eventually replacing the previous paste-style polishes. It has undergone very few changes in both composition and package design over the past century. Cans are often collected as a typical example of classic British advertising design.
