How to Clean Up Door Knobs and Handles?

There are many kinds of door hardware available, including levers, screen door hardware, deadbolt sets, mortise locks, door handles and knobs. These may be small devices but they make a big difference in the function and also look of your door. When these devices become dirty or get broken, they might become a big headache for you.

All door hardware devices are available in a range of materials, including brass, copper and silver. It is essential to clean and maintain them properly. Door knobs made up of brass are very popular today just because of the recent revival of old architecture. Furthermore, brass is known for its self-disinfecting properties. However, it still requires regular cleaning to make it last longer and enhance look as well.

Besides having grime and the usual dirt because of daily usage, brass door handles and hardware is prone to tarnishing. This generally happens due to the reaction of metal to certain elements in the air. Dip a half lemon in salt and rub it onto the brass door knobs and handles. Then, wipe it with a soft cloth or cotton and you will get your device clean again. This cleaning trick is also helpful in cleaning the accessories made up of copper.

Silver-plated or sterling silver devices also look great but it tarnishes very easily. To clean these devices, disassemble them and put them in a glass dish or an aluminium tray. Sprinkle some baking soda on these items and then pour boiling water over them. After a few minutes, wipe them with a non-abrasive cloth. Regular cleaning with soapy water is also essential in addition to these techniques.
