um vinegar will remove tarnish, it is an acid (weak but still an acid) so it will etch it clean. any resulting tarnish is from removing any oil/dirt that was protecting the brass before hand. also when it comes down to it, you want a light layer of corrosion (patina) because it ends up protecting the metal when you talk about ideal
