Handle Hygiene Habits
July 05, 2023
Handles play a vital role in maintaining a hygienic home environment including areas such as entrance door pulls/handles, bathroom knobs and kitchen drawer and door pulls. By providing a designated touchpoint, handles effectively prevent the transfer of bacteria, oils, and other contaminants from hands onto surfaces. This reduces the risk of cross-contamination and helps keep your home clean and safe.
When it comes to cleaning techniques for different handle finishes, it's important to consider the specific material and finish to ensure proper maintenance and longevity. Here are some cleaning tips for Manico Me oak, stainless steel, brass, and powder coat finishes:
Start by removing any loose dirt or dust with a soft cloth or a brush.
For routine cleaning, wipe the handles with a damp cloth using mild soapy water.
Avoid using harsh abrasives or chemicals that can damage the wood's finish.
Dry the handles thoroughly to prevent moisture absorption and potential damage.
Stainless steel handles:
Begin by wiping the handles with a soft cloth or sponge dampened with warm water and mild dish soap.
For tougher stains or fingerprints, use a stainless steel cleaner or a mixture of vinegar and water. Apply the cleaner following the manufacturer's instructions.
After cleaning, rinse the handles with clean water and dry them thoroughly with a soft cloth to avoid water spots or streaks.
Simply clean gently with warm soapy water with a soft cloth from time to time to remove any build up from the surface of the finish.
Rinse the handles with warm water and dry them thoroughly with a soft cloth.
To protect the brass finish, you can apply a thin coat of brass polish or a specialised metal wax following the product instructions.
Powder coated handles:
Start by wiping the handles with a soft cloth or sponge to remove any loose dirt or dust.
Fill a bucket with warm water and mild dish soap.
Dip a soft cloth or sponge into the soapy water and gently clean the handles, avoiding abrasive materials that can scratch the powder coat finish.
Rinse the handles with clean water and wipe them dry.
Avoid using abrasive cleaners, solvents, or abrasive scrubbers that can damage the powder coat finish.
Using the above techniques will ensure the longevity and cleanliness of your Manico Me handles. Happy hygienic handles everyone!
