Default Polishing Brass hookahs

I got a quick questiosn for all you brass hookah owners, how often do you polish your hookah?

And is it common for the new KM tri-metals to have black spots on them after you wash them and dont dry it straight away?

Don't know much about TriMetals just know that if one has different metals and a weak electrolyte like water there will be some electrolysis and discoloration. have used salt and lemons to clean brass and copper pieces before make it nice and shiny.

http://www.skygeek.com/bc-10.html I have a can of this stuff that I bought for other purposes, but it blasts the hell out of tarnished brass and makes it look brand new. plus you only need to use a tiny bit so this can will potentially last at least 10 years lol

I kind of prefer the aged look of my dual-tone copper km. I haven't taken anything to it yet, but I may in the future. Just to keep it shiney.

Try Wright's Brass polish. It's water soluble, so it cleans off easier than others like Brasso.
