Finishes: * I get a lot of questions on what finish to select based on the faucet finish, – Brass, is what I consider the easiest metal to pair up to in regards to the faucet finish you are using – if you are using an unlacquered brass faucet – just go with polished and or matte. If you are using a PVD or lacquered /darker finish on your faucet, antique, weathered, or bronzed or any of the 250 finishes out there currently, * You have to remember – My sinks are solid unlacquered brass, and they will oxidize over time. Your best friend is the care kit I supply with every sink, You want more matte, use the Scotch-Brite pad, if you want the brass to be darker, scotch brite it with the pad and DON”T wax it, and as it darkens, use the Scotch-Brite pad to adjust to the color of the faucet. If you do nothing it will darken, you want to make it matte, just scotch brite it, you want it polished and shiny use the polishing cream I provide. The best thing about unlacquered brass, is that you can adjust the finish to what you want when you want it, and if you do nothing- don’t stress- it will be oxidized, just scrub it down and or polish it if you want polished or just scrub it down and you have matte. If you want it antique, and it’s too dark, lightly scotch brite it – You can’t screw it up, its an Antimicrobial Unlacquered finish that is germfree surface and it’s a living finish. You just need to decide what you like and adjust accordingly – Brass is the best metal to use for sinks because depending on anytime what you want, you can achieve that finish. You want it polished, polish it, you want matte, use the Scotch-Brite pad, you want antique – do nothing…. Honestly, its that simple 🙂

Care and Maintenance:

Shiny and matte finishes will naturally oxidize and tarnish, and the antique/ weathered brass finish can lighten over time with excessive use. You can use Barkeepers Friend and or a natural deoxidizer polishing paste like lemon juice and salt or in Mexico we use Valentina hot sauce (similar to Tasbasco hot sauce), to remove tarnish from a shiny sink. Most bronze and brass statues throughout Mexico are maintained by municipalities using hot sauce. A little paste wax and or beeswax polish will help maintain the finish longer.

Do not clean Antique / Weathered Brass with brass cleaners as they will lighten the finish. Mild soap and water is all that you need. 000 Steel Wool / or a green scour pad can be used to burnish tarnish off these finishes.
