In addition to the natural colour and warmth of brass, using this type of metal within the kitchen has been known to have a benefit to your overall health. According to Ayurveda metals such as brass and copper are considered a staple item in many kitchens due to the anti-bacterial properties of copper and brass.
Using natural minerals such as copper and zinc can also be better for the environment when compared to cheaper plastic alternatives in the kitchen as they are less hazardous to produce and long lasting.
We recommend hand washing with warm water or dusting with a soft cloth.
After a period of time Brass can react with air and begins to oxidize or tarnish, changing the colour slighting. Here are some ways that might help you to maintain your brass products:
- Pitambari Powder is the best and most traditional way to clean the brass items.
- Vinegar with a combination of salt can be applied to clean the spoon or otherwise immerse the spoon in a solution of vinegar and salt in boiling water.
- Lemon and salt mixed together can be rubbed to clean the product and salt can also be replaced with baking soda.
