About brass care

There are various brass products around us, such as accessories and doorknobs. Brass has patina to protect the material so that it will not rust and rot if sweat is left unattended.

​ This patina is not toxic and can be left alone, but it may leave green marks on the skin in summer.

Therefore, if you are worried about it, it is recommended to wipe it with a handkerchief or metal polishing cloth when it gets wet with sweat or salt water. If you are worried about patina, if you have powdered citric acid in your house, dilute it in water, otherwise mix salt with the seasoning lemon water and trace the patina with a cotton swab to remove it immediately.


​ Also, if it is very dirty or you want to polish brass to a shiny finish, you can polish it with a household cleaning abrasive (cif, canyon, picard, etc.). You can also remove any dirt or slight scratches on the lens surface with these products.

​ However, please note that the black dyeing will be removed if you polish the black dyeing product like the image.
