Any advice on how to safely clean brass hinges?
We have years of paint on them and would like to clean them up and use them again.
Any information would be appreciated.

Get a small can of lacquer thinner and a metal coffee can, drop one of the hinges in the thinner and allow to sit for a few hours covered, a plastic putty knife, a stiff plastic bristle brush (tooth brush size) and toothpics should clean them up well. Try ONE first, you may need to get some brass polisher to finish up with.

Hope this helps.
