INSTRUCTIONS FOR GENERAL PURPOSE USE: Use sparingly, polish with a soft cloth while FLITZ is still moist. Do not let dry.

POLISHING TIP for Brass, Copper, Bronze, Silver, Aluminum, Mag Alloys, Stainless Steel, etc.: Applying FLITZ with paper towel will act as a mild abrasive and help to remove heavy tarnish faster. Polish with Flitz Microfiber Cloth.

RUST TIP: Use Flitz with #0000 steel wool or a white 3M™ Scotch Brite pad to act as an abrasive. Bronze wool may be used for marine applications.

WATER STAINS on Shower Doors, Metal fixtures, etc.: For stubborn water stains, surface rust, and lime deposits, apply Flitz with a nylon scouring pad or white 3M™ Scotch Brite pad to act as an abrasive.

FIBERGLASS & PAINTED SURFACES: Flitz safely removes oxidation, chalking, and sun fading on fiberglass, Plexiglas and painted surfaces. For large fiberglass and painted surfaces Flitz can be applied using a low speed buffer. (Under 1000 R.P.M.) A random orbital buffer designed for this purpose may also be used. If polishing by hand, apply FLITZ with a damp cloth, buff with a soft dry cloth.

DIAMOND PLATE ALUMINUM TIP: Use Flitz Buff 'n Polish Ball to reach all grooves and crevices.

HEAVY TARNISH AND ANTIQUES (Brass, Bronze, Copper Only): If metal is very dark or green an Acid precleaner can be used. Wipe or spray liquid Lysol™ Toilet Bowl Cleaner or Eagle One™ Chrome & Wire Wheel Cleaner onto surface to be cleaned. Take precaution and wear gloves. Let sit 5 to 7 minutes, repeat if necessary. Wash off with baking soda and water to neutralize the acid. Polish metal with Flitz and a paper towel or rag.

HEAT DISCOLORATION: On chrome exhaust pipes, truck stacks and stovetops, warm up the surface (not hot), apply Flitz, and let penetrate 3 minutes and rub briskly with paper towel. Up to 3 applications may be necessary. For extreme cases use Flitz with #0000 steel wool.

ALUMINUM TIP: For large surfaces Flitz may be applied with a slow speed, or random orbital buffer. Lambs wool, terry cloth, or foam pads may be used. Wipe surfaces with baking flour or cornstarch to remove black residue. A solvent, such as Denatured Alcohol, may be used around rivets or crevices.

GUN CLEANING TIP: Put Flitz onto clean gun patch or bore brush. Lightly work into barrel. Remove dirty patch, buff with clean patch. Use 2 TBLS of Flitz for polishing brass gun shells in tumblers. Flitz safely removes rust on factory gun bluing.

JEWELRY TIP: Flitz will not harm diamonds or gemstones. Great for solid gold, silver, and platinum.

CLEAR COATING: Flitz will not harm or remove clear protective coatings such as lacquer or polyurethane etc. To remove the tarnish beneath the lacquered finish, you must first strip off the lacquer coating. Use lacquers stripper or paint remover (available at your local hardware store). A clear coating may be reapplied after polishing if desired.
