Is it safe to wash cleaning rags used for brasso

Expert's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I work in a school and once in a while we clean some brass, just wanted to make sure that it was safe to wash in a machine used for mostly clothing and football uniforms

Hello,

Yes, it's safe; just follow precautions. Use hot water and plenty of soap. If the machine still smells of Brasso after the last rinse, run an empty load through, again using soap.

Best regards,

Schuyler
