I need to clean and restore 2 brass candlabras that have pits and stains. I tried to clean them first with a metal cleaner which removed the wax and dirt but the brass is still very marked. I also believe we inadvertently removed the lacquer protection from part of them in an effort to "shine them up". We thought it was a wax buildup that wouldn't come off with the cleaner. So what do we do now? Is there a better site to post this question?
