Protecting Handles with Lacquer

Our cabinet handles and knobs come with a lacquer which protects them from the external atmosphere and will prevent any corrosion occurring.

It is important to keep the lacquer intact, and for this reason we recommend only using a non-abrasive cloth or sponge, and a solution of dishwashing liquid and warm water. 

Recommended Cleaning Methods for Lacquered Handles

A non-abrasive cloth is a type of fabric that is designed to be gentle on surfaces, yet still effective in cleaning. These cloths are typically made from a variety of materials such as microfiber, cotton, and synthetic fibres. The fibres are woven together tightly to form a soft and durable material that can effectively remove dirt, dust, and other debris without scratching or damaging surfaces.

A quick wipe down of your handles using a non-abrasive cloth or sponge and a solution of dishwashing liquid and warm water, followed by a drying-off with a tea towel should be adequate for regular care and maintenance to keep your cupboard handles clean, hygienic and looking pristine.
