    What polish can be used safely on a vintage brush?

    What are you trying to remove? Glue?

    I've used Flitz with good results:

    I agree with @Linuxguile, Flitz works very well on plastic, I also use it. There are others that work well also, and one of my favorites is Novus. It comes in different "grits" so you can eventually get to a glass smooth finish while removing scratches. I used it exclusively while working in glass shops to make plexiglass have a really smooth and shiny finish on some custom jobs.

    Nothing. Just trying to shine them up.

    I have this somewhere. We moved recently, so I'll have to look.

    Simichrome or a similar metal polish. I've used such with no problems at all.
