: i installed a polished brass faucet in my vanity and now after a few years it looks really tarnished. not exactly sure what happened to it. i never used abrasives on it. any suggestions on how to polish it.

if its a cheap brass plated faucet, forget it. If it's an expensive faucet, it might be solid brass. any good brass polish from the grocery store will do a good job polishing brass. the problem is getting off the laquer that the manufacturer put on to preserve the shine. disassemble as much as possible and try several applications of paint remover. steel wool and elbow grease.

after you get it polished. spray it with a couple of coats of laquer, other wise you have to polish it every day.
