Care and maintenance:
The high polish of Brass products is often treated with a clear protective coating to provide durability.
Brass, like sterling silver, will gradually tarnish and take on an antique appearance. Atmospheric
conditions, caustic agents such as paints, or scratches from sharp objects may cause the protective
coating to crack or peel causing spotting and discolorations.
However, the beauty of the metal can be maintained by taking a few simple steps. Initial care for brass
requires only a quick rub with Wax Polish and light buffing with a soft cloth. You may prefer to do this
weekly, especially in exterior, often used or damp environments. “Blue Magic” Metal Polish is a quick,
effective way of restoring mildly tarnished brassware.
If heavy discoloration occurs the finish can be restored by stripping the remaining lacquer and polishing
regularly with “Blue Magic”. Alternatively let it age naturally to an antique finish. The beauty of solid brass
is that it can always be restored to its original lustre.
To aid the longevity and appearance of stainless-steel products it must be cleaned regularly or use a metal
polish such as “Blue Magic” which can be applied periodically. Atmospheric conditions, salt deposits, acids,
caustic agents, cement or dust on construction sites all have the potential to cause discolouration to the
surface. If this occurs do not be concerned as usually this is not the stainless steel itself but particles
clinging to its surface. The product can be revived by following the above maintenance procedure and
repeating regularly. This small amount of routine care can only preserve the elegance of stainless-steel
Many products are made from aluminium. Aluminium has a very high durability, a high strength to weight
ratio and is light and corrosion resistant. Simple steps need to be carried out, despite the material’s
excellent properties, to maintain its appearance, avoid staining and the damage to the product.
Regular cleaning and maintenance to remove any build-up of dirt needs to be carried out in order to keep
the surface looking pristine. Leaving it unmaintained for an extended period of time may cause staining
which may require a harsher cleaning product that may in time damage and diminish the appearance of
your décor. Light dirt should simply be removed using a sponge, lukewarm water and a neutral cleaning
agent or you can use ‘blue magic’.
Many handles are made of zinc alloy (otherwise known as Zamac or Zinc diecast)) which is an ideal
material for die casting and allows for very intricate designs. One advantage of Zinc Alloy is the ability to
electroplate it allowing a multitude of finishes.
The care and maintenance of Zinc Alloy is similar to other materials requiring regular maintenance. It is
recommended to clean handles and knobs with luke warm soapy water and a soft, clean cloth. Ideally best
to be carried out at regular intervals. At least every two months but more often if near the coast or in a
corrosive or dusty environment.
Avoid using household cleaners containing damaging chemicals and never use abrasive scouring pads.
These chemical cleaning agents are NOT suitable as it may cause a reaction and will damage the finish of
