Exposure to ammonia makes brass brittle, and Brasso contains ammonia; it should never be used to clean cartridge brass unless you're REALLY fond of gas in your face.

I usually put my brass in the vibrater for a couple minutes, than using a water bottle with a spray nozzle, "spritz" your media.
I think it helps rejuvenate your treated media, plus it eliminates all of the dust.

The ammonia in the Brasso is what will cause it to break down a case.
One of these days it will back fire on those that insist on using it.....
The more that case is worked the better the chances it will mess your face up one of these days...
Tons of stuff will clean up a case, why take a chance on using Brasso...
Used a lot of in in the USMC back when, but never on a cartridge case...

Brasso is a definate no no. You can tempt fate but sooner or later if it dont catch you it will get the next poor guy that tries it.

I had no luck using a tumbler. It would get the body of the case clean, but not around the neck area. I now use blitz cloth that you can buy at Army-Navy stores. It works great. Wipes powder residue right off. It works better if you wipe them down right after you shoot.
Another product that works about the same is, never-dull. You can get at Walmart. Just my 2 cents.

Pour your media from one container to the other outside in a light breeze.It gets rid of the dust and makes Al Gore mad at the same time .Now how much better can it get?
