How to Care for Brass Pasta Tools
We should note that brass does tarnish slightly and lose its luster over time, but it’s nothing that a quick clean can’t fix. To clean brass tools, take a clean rag and dampen in a mixture of water and lemon juice, or water and baking soda. Squeeze out excess water and gently rub the brass to clean off any dough or flour stuck to the surface. Allow tools to dry in a cool, ventilated place. Note: never run brass through the dishwasher, and do not use dish soap!
