Clean your brass with hot soapy water and a soft cloth. An old toothbrush will help out in tight spots. (If you're cleaning a lamp: unplug it before you start, and keep water away from the cord and socket area).

Never use anything abrasive -- no baking soda, wire wool, brushes, or acidic solutions -- on plated brass.
