You’ll find that the polish that is supplied with the handles usually consists of a base coat and a clear finish to protect them from corrosion. Cleaning these brass handles is also fairly simple because you don’t need to use any special cleaner to clean them, just normal soap and water will do the job. If there are noticeable signs of corrosion on the surface of the knobs, then you should remove them to allow the polish to reach its destination. Once you’ve removed the knob, you can clean the brass with an electrochemical polish remover.
To remove dirt and bacteria from your brass handles, you will need a soft cloth, such as a baby wipe and a polish remover. To clean the surfaces of your knobs, first, take out the knobs themselves and set them aside. It’s okay to leave a small corner of the knob exposed so that you can wipe it with a soft cloth. Be sure to wipe it well, making sure not to apply too much pressure on the surface as you work it in. Once you’ve wiped the surfaces down, you’ll be able to polish the surfaces of the knobs using the polish remover.
If your Brass Handles or knobs have developed a rusted patina over the years, you may be able to restore them simply by restoring the natural tone of the metal. For instance, you can restore the patina on brass handles and knobs is to use an all-natural oil rubbed bronze finish. The oil rubbed bronze will react with the natural properties found in the metal and cause the metal to rust and then patina to form. You’ll find that the all-natural oil rubbed bronze is very easy to work with, and the results can be surprisingly beautiful. You should never use steel wool on the bronze metal, as the zinc used in the oil rubbed bronze can damage the metal, so it’s typically only used on brass handles.
In addition to using oil rubbed bronze to restore Brass Handles and knobs, you can also use other methods to help protect the metal surfaces from bacteria and rust. For example, you can place special polish on the metal surfaces to help protect them from damage from water or steam. You can also make sure that your cookware is frequently cleaned with soap and water to prevent food from being damaged when you do not sanitise the cookware.
When you have brass handles or knobs in your home, you should be aware that these types of metals are commonly used as a way to achieve a certain style or look. However, because they are commonly used, you may find that the brass doors and cabinets show signs of corrosion more often than you would like. If you find that corrosion has set in on your brass doors or drawer fronts, you should take them to a specialist for treatment. A specialist can often restore the surface of your brass doors or drawers to an attractive state, free of corrosion. In some cases, all you need to do is paint the tarnished area to make them look as good as new again!
