How to use horsetail to polish and clean metals

Due to its high silica content, horsetail has very small crystals that act in a similar way to a kind of peeling that removes dirt, dust and polish.

You can apply horsetail to polish metals in two ways: directly by rubbing a stem of the plant on the surface to be polished or by making an infusion and leaving the object inside it.

To make the infusion you need a proportion of 50 g of fresh horsetail (or 25 if it is dry) for each liter of water. Put the water in a saucepan over medium heat and when it starts to boil add the finely chopped horsetail and turn off the heat. Cover it and let it rest for about 8 hours.

Once this time has elapsed, you can introduce the objects you want to polish in the horsetail infusion for 1 hour. Then you just have to rinse with water and rub with a dry cloth.

If you use the stem of the plant directly, rub well over the entire surface of the object, let it dry and then rub with a cloth.

It is better to make the amount that you are going to use at all times, since it gives better results if the infusion is fresh than if we use it from previous days that we have left over.
