Ideally you should wear gloves when working with the brass hardware, or you may well tarnish it and leave smudges and/or fingerprints. If your lock and/or hinges tarnish we suggest removing the hardware from the box and giving them a gentle wipe with brasso wadding. Then buff lightly with a clean, soft cloth to get back the sheen. When fitting them back onto the box just remember to wear a pair of disposable gloves, to refrain from touching the brass again. If you can’t get the hardware off, you can try adding a fine border of masking tape before applying the brasso wadding. (Take care not to apply wadding to any other parts of your box).
