ever try this with dawn soap?
The original home brew used it. Most have switched over to car wash and wax since the wax prevents the brass from tarnishing.
I use 1/4 teaspoon of LemiShine Booster and 4 drops of Dawn with great results.
Don't over do it with the cleaning products and it will work out fine. I've got brass that I cleaned almost a year ago and it has no tarnish.
Yes. I started with Dawn. Soon afterwards I switched to ArmorAll Wash&Wax.
As previously mentioned, AAW&W inhibits tarnish and it also has the added benefit of easing the passage of my unlubed straight-wall cases thru the sizer.
I have some ziploc bags of cleaned cases in the basement that I processed a couple of years ago and they are not tarnished.
I use dawn all the time, Dawn has a degreaser in it, I also use a little bit of lemishine with it as well. GBExpat is correct though since the degreaser strips everything off of the case if you leave it sitting out it will tarnish and lose its shine a bit!
Still working through a qt container of Frankford Arsenal case cleaning solution. They packed some samples in with my FART, and it worked so well I decided to get a bottle. At about 2 caps full per run I expect to be using this for a long while yet.
I use dawn with 1/4 teaspoon of Lemi Shine. I've been using this combo with great results for years.
Dawn and Lemi shine is all I've ever used.
Wash and Wax + Citric acid. Cases get what the car is getting and the car gets whats on sale. (Usually Turtle)
I always use a generous dollop of wash and wax and about a .45 case or so of citric acid.
How much acid depends on your water PH. High PH water needs more.
