What is the best way to clean brass door handles?
The best way to clean lacquered polished brass is to remove surface dust with a soft cloth, and then use a mild solution of soapy warm water to clean sticky or dirty marks. Once clean, thoroughly dry with a soft cloth. A light coating of natural wax will then give them an extra bit of protection.
Can you use metal polish on brass doors?
The duration between cleans can be extended by application of a wax polish (as you would wax a car). Bare un-lacquered metal may also show up finger prints when handled and this does not happen when the surface is waxed, so waxing is definitely worth doing regularly and especially each time the item is cleaned with metal polish.
