To scrub dirt and debris off of a bronze grave marker, use a brush with nylon bristles. A toothbrush is ideal for removing embedded dirt between letters and decorative accents. Bring a bucket of water to rinse the marker after washing. Dry the marker with a soft towel, taking special care to remove residual oil from lettering.
