Beautiful little clawfoot tub has been found


So, we found a tub to replace our destroyed one.

When I started to look at my fixtures, which I can NOT replace, I realized there is some greenish corrosion in a few places. They are matte nickel finish, over brass. How can I get that off without damaging the finish?

I have an email in to the company I bought it from, but haven't heard back yet.

Try soaking it in vinegar overnight.

Turns out the green is from where we nicked the finish through to the brass. Fan-flipping-tastic. And the goose neck housing is split... We're waiting to hear back from the company on that one. *sigh*
