Texas Pete for Brass?

Post by Malibu » Thu Sep 30, 2004 7:24 am

I heard on the radio the other day they were experimenting with hot sauce.....like Texas Pete or the Fire Sauce you get from Taco Bell. Anyway, they soaked a penny with it for about 30 minutes and claimed that it shined like new! Some caller called in and said in the Navy sometimes they would run out of Brasso used to clean the ship's bell, so they would substitute with Texas Pete. He said it cleaned it like never before. Hmm....has anyone else tried this?

Just think IF it does that to brass, what does it do for our intestines??? :shock:

Salsa works, hot sauce works, soda works... anything with a mild acidity will make a penny sparkle.

What they WON'T do, as the old urban legends would have you believe, is completely dissolve a penny/tooth/nail overnight.
