Use this as a tumbler polish?

Ive got this bottle of brass cleaner bought from some door to door vendor called Colonel Brassy. It will clean the heck out of brass,silver,chrome etc. I got to wondering about adding it to tumbling media but not sure if it would weaken brass.Here is what their website says:

Colonel Brassy is a water based cleaning compound mixture of flux-calcined, glycols and H20

Citric Acid-4.5%


Propylene Glycol-18%

Diatomaceous Earth-24%


Anybody see a reason this would cause any weakening of brass?

Don't think so.

The citric acid has the same effect that vinegar does in terms of reducing tarnish. The diatomaceous earth sounds like a polishing agent, and the other two agents are emulsifiers/carrying agents.

Nothing ammonia like in there that I can see.
