How to clean brass and copper shades
In keeping with our heritage values, the majority of our products are made from natural, unlacquered brass and copper. Lacquer is a thin coating of varnish that is used to protect the metal from oxidising and thus avoiding it tarnishing or 'dulling down' over time. However, we feel that natural brass and copper makes for a more authentic finish - perfect for traditional metalware.
It means that occasionally some of our antiqued brass and copper products, particularly those that have any kind of spun shade, can be susceptible to fingerprints if handled without the use of gloves.
- We always recommend wearing soft gloves when handling and installing our brass and copper lights.
To give your shades a general clean to remove any build-up of dirt and grime, we recommend the following steps.
- Recommended tools: Pair of soft cotton gloves, soft cotton cloth.
