To ensure that your brass items retain their beauty and luster for years to come, please follow these care instructions:

  1. Regular Dusting: Dust your brassware regularly using a soft, lint-free cloth or a feather duster. This helps prevent the build-up of dirt and grime, keeping your brass items looking their best.
  2. Gentle Cleaning: When cleaning brassware, avoid harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners as they can damage the surface. Instead, use a mild solution of warm water and a gentle dish soap. Dampen a soft cloth in the solution and gently wipe the brass surface. Rinse with clean water and dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.
  3. Polishing: To restore the shine of your brassware, occasional polishing is recommended. Use a high-quality brass polish specifically designed for brass items. Apply a small amount of polish to a soft cloth and gently rub the brass surface in a circular motion. Buff the polish off using a clean, dry cloth.
  4. Protection: Brass is prone to tarnish and corrosion when exposed to moisture or humidity. To protect your brassware, avoid placing it near water sources or in damp environments. Use coasters or felt pads under brass items to prevent direct contact with surfaces that may scratch or damage the finish.
  5. Display and Storage: When displaying or storing your brassware, avoid direct sunlight as prolonged exposure can cause fading or discoloration. It's also advisable to store brass items in a clean, dry area away from moisture and dust. Wrap delicate brass pieces in soft, acid-free tissue paper or cloth to prevent scratching or tarnishing.
  6. Avoid Abrasive Materials: When cleaning or polishing brassware, never use abrasive materials such as steel wool or harsh scrub brushes. These can scratch the surface of the brass, diminishing its shine and beauty.
  7. Patina Preservation: Brass develops a natural patina over time, which adds character and charm to the metal. If you prefer to preserve the patina, simply dust and clean the brass without using polishing agents. Embrace the unique and aged appearance of your brassware as it tells the story of its journey.

Following these care instructions will help maintain the beauty and longevity of your Karigari brassware. Remember, each piece is meticulously crafted, and with proper care, it will continue to adorn your home with elegance and grace.
