Brasso is the brand name for a polishing compound manufactured by Reckitt Benckiser Inc of England since 1905. It is often used by customizers to remove printing from minifig torsos and heads.
It can also be used to remove light scratches from ABS plastic to repair damage or as the final step in smoothing elements that have been cut or shaped using sandpaper.
