I thought I had used vinegar to remove house paint from hinges, however, I've had some soaking for 3 days and no joy. Paint is cleaner, but still sticking to the brass quite well. Is there something I'm missing? :unsure: Is my memory deceiving me? :unsure: What should I be soaking them in? :unsure:

How about a can of that nasty old-fashioned paint stripper. Won't hurt the brass any and will make fast work of the paint.

Citrus strip usually works pretty good and no fumes to run you out of the place. Just takes a little longer then the chemical strippers.

Well, they are stripped. Put them in water with baking soda overnight and then boiled that for 20 minutes or so and the paint just came off in semi-solid masses. However, the brass is so stained I will probably replace them anyway.

You don't seem very lazy to me! you seem very patient. shoot after all that effort (trying to remember/using vinegar/waiting 3 days/Posting about it/Boiling them/Posting again...ect.) a little more effort while Social distancing yourself from the store- use a fine sand paper and a polish like Mothers or some such thing..
