Over time our recycled brass may start to tarnish slightly. You may prefer the brass when it becomes darker and more earthy, or you may prefer to restore your handle to its original, polished golden tone.
The best way to polish your handle is to use a brass polish, we suggest Brasso (Always follow the instructions on the bottle). If you don't have any brass polish to hand, or prefer a more natural alternative, cover half a lemon in salt and rub over the brass until you see the tarnish start to lift, rinse well and polish dry with a soft cloth.
