    I saw Brass Juice Case Wash advertised as good for cleaning brass WITHOUT using stainless steel pins and thought: What the heck? Worst that could happen is I might have to tumble a load twice, so why not?

    I ordered Monday, and it arrived at the house Wednesday at 9 am. $20 for 1 quart with shipping.

    It is green, and has neither a harsh smell, nor is it hard on my fingers... seems pretty tame, overall.

    I emptied the steel pins out of my Thumblers Tumbler black barrel, and filled it about 1/2 way with dirty .40 S&W cases: XndUhqt8RhyntvBfy4C7Ow.jpg

    That was exactly 30 minutes of wet tumbling.

    Looks like it does a great job. How much does juice does it take each time?

    I used 1/2 ounce (about a tablespoon). Ran 3 batches using the same water/brass juice, and the 3rd came out just as shiny as the first.

    If you only use 1/2 ounce, that's $0.30 per load... with 3 batches, that drops it to $0.10 per load.


    I should probably add that I only ran these for 30 minutes. I'm pretty confident that if I'd let it go an hour or so that they'd be that much cleaner...but I don't care about perfectly clean INSIDE of the brass... so this is great for me, as is.

    Have you tried your normal wash without any pins?

    I have heard of some guys having great luck with their normal mix without the pins.

    I really like the little pods for the dishwasher. The have soap and a spot free rinse agent all in one. Just toss one in with hot water and turn it on.


    Haven’t tried without the pins though.
