Rejuvinating a harmonica... (3)

Hi everyone, I just found my old Harmonica ( a 'Blessing' if you care) but i think it's been sitting in dusty boxes too long. You see, It's one of those long harmonicas with the 48 holes, and I think the brass (alloy?) is starting to tarnish and such. is there something I can do to remove the tarnish and such that wont permanently damage it? I'm basically looking for a way to remove the neglect so i can store it mroe properly from now on. thanks!

just get some brass polish? As long as it's not rusting or anything, simple polish will work

just clean the polish off properly before you start blowing into it :D

well, i was wondering if there was something i could just soak it in, really. i don't want to manually polish the insides, because i wouldn't get everywhere, and i'd probably mess up the tuning of the brass tines.
