Black Antique Handles - these types of door handles are fantastic for adding that traditional and country feel to your home. You do not have to live in a country style house to pull this off either you can live in a modern two up two down semi and still have these rustic time-honored door handle classics. These door handles have intricate designs on the base of the door handle and on the actual handle, usually made from black cast iron, they are just beautiful, beaming with character and history.
As door handles easily catch germs and bacteria because of the variety of individual hands that touch them in the course of a day, it is important to consider the materials used. It is believed that certain materials like brass, copper and silver discourage the growth of bacteria and germs through some kind of electro-chemical effect; while other materials like aluminum, stainless steel, glass and porcelain do not have the same action. However, this belief has remained just that... a belief: and studies have not been extensive enough to confirm or disprove this possible effect, except in the case of silver. Hospitals in particular are experimenting with handle materials as they continue their fight against infectious disease within their wards.
We have also seen door handles made from many different materials although most people think of some kind of metal. However, handles have also been made from ceramic, wood, glass, plastic, etc. One of the oldest materials that are still among the more popular options is brass. For one thing, brass looks gorgeous but it is also rust resistant. Todays brass door handle is somewhat different from those made in earlier times due to finishes. For instance, for a more modern appearance, many people choose brushed or satin brass.
If you want to maintain the polish of these handles, then the best possible and safest method is to use the natural and harmless products available in your kitchen. One possible method is to combine flour, vinegar and salt to make a paste then apply it on your handles. Similarly, you can also use pure lemon juice as a substitute of vinegar. If you are using ammonia, then slightly dip a piece of clean cloth in it and rub it on your handles. If you are using supermarket polish, then use the same procedure as with ammonia to rub it. This polish has the ability of removing grease, grime and dirt.
