CARE AND MAINTENANCE

Brass & copper

Our brass and copper products are solid brass and copper. Since both are living materials without any finishes or other chemical treatments they will oxidize and age with time. Either let them age with grace, turn blotchy and darken beautifully or maintenance them by polishing them regularly.

 

For best maintenance use our own cleaner PUTS. (Please read further down for more information).

 

Chrome

Our chromed series is a finely chrome-coated brass. The same chrome as used on car and boat parts. It is both beautiful and durable.

Use washing up liquid or our own PUTS cleaner for best result when cleaning.

 

Aluminium

Our aluminium products are solid aluminium with a brushed finish.

Use washing up liquid or our own PUTS cleaner for best result when cleaning.

 

A few tips

Brushed surfaces should not be polished but cleaned with the right detergents. If polish is used there is a risk of the surface turning shiny.

 

In order for the copper to maintain its pink tone or for the brass to stay yellow slightly longer, dab a bit of linseed-oil on a piece of cloth and stroke a very thin layer on product. Let dry. This treatment will wear off with time.

 

Puts cleaner

PUTS is our own cleaner that is perfect for cleaning brass, copper, chrome and aluminium products. It works on most metal surfaces as stainless steel, chrome, copper, brass, aluminium, nickel, silver and gold.

 

How to use our puts

Apply a small amount of PUTS on a damp cloth and rub gently on product until all stains are gone. Rinse away any excess cleaner with lukewarm water and wipe dry with a cotton cloth as quick and thoroughly as possible.

 

Nails and skin may turn white when in contact with PUTS. Wear plastic gloves when applying the cleaner.

Does your polished brass & copper products look tarnished/oxidized?

Use AUTOSOL CREAM POLISH to shine. When using AUTOSOL CREAM POLISH make sure to dismantle hanger/knob from wall or drawer before shining because the cream polish turns black when using.

Put a small amount of polishing cream on dry cloth and polish carefully in same direction. When the surface is nice and shiny, wipe off the excess cream with a clean soft cloth.

DO NOT use on chrome or brushed surfaces.
