I've been working on re-painting some old dressers, and when I took the brass knobs off, I realized that they had paint on them, presumably from when the thing was originally made. I've tried to use a paint remover (worked on removing paint off of my wood trim, but didn't seem to help much here), and I got a little desperate and tried Goo Gone, but that didn't work either.
On some of the outer edges of the knob, I can scrape the paint off with my fingernail, but the knobs are pretty intricate so there are nooks and crannies I can't get into that way and it's driving me crazy!
Any suggestions for ways to get this paint off? Also, any good products for making the brass nice and shiny again?
