I have a can of Brasso that is quite old. Its always worked very well for my brass fan parts. It finally ran out, so I went to Home Depot to get a new can.
I was very happy to find the product still on the shelves - but wait - its in a "new" plastic bottle.
Uh-oh.
I had my doubts, but I brought it home anyway.
Would it work the same as my "old" can of Brasso ?
Of course not !
I have spent many many hours polishing my fan blades with both old and new versions of Brasso.
The newer formula in the plastic bottles pales in comparison.
So began my search for a Brasso replacement.
I have tried dozens of different products and FINALLY found one that performs as good as my original old can.
WRIGHTS BRASS POLISH seems to be the best performer for me out of many I have tried.
It performed just as well on my brass blades as the old Brasso formula.
Here is a picture of my old can, the Wrights Brass polish, and the newer Brasso in the plastic bottle.
The wrights worked extremely well on my sponge ball metal polish tool for my hand drill, as well as polishing by hand with clean rags.
If anyone were to ask me what I would recommend to replace the old Brasso formula I would not hesitate to hand them a bottle of the Wrights.

I have always used Mother Mag Wheel Polish or a buffer.

Was reading the post while eating, almost chocked on a Brussels sprout when I read Steve Stephens recommendation on a brass polish, have we been spoofed? I find Mass metal polish to work well on brass and Japanne.

My vote is for Mothers, both brass & aluminum! Used it for many years on my motorcycle's aluminum engine covers and many brass blades! Also seems to leave a coating that makes the polish last much longer.

 Brussel Sprouts get your throat Rick?   Take care, Wenol will help, but ask your Doctor first if it's right for you.
