Default Re: Nickel over brass-polishing recipe?

Nickel does not come out as shiny as chrome, no matter what you use. It smooths out the surface, which enhances the shine, but it still shows the worn away spots that were there before. Donít be discouraged, itís the nature of nickel. Some aged nickel is in better condition and will produce better results with a cleaning and polishing. I use Flitz, and get it at Ace Hardware. Sometimes double application produces better results, but always use 100% cotton cloths.
