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.
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.
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.
Door handles have become like fashion statements at the top end of the market as some variations come in intricate and ornate designs to add glitz and glamor to the over-all look of your home. While retaining its main functionality of opening and closing doors variations in handle design often come in relation to particular needs and requirements such as: for nursery rooms handles sometimes come in cheerful cartoon designs; for kitchen doors some have fruit embellishments; for a girls room pink handles are also available. These are fancy handles: but for permanent and lasting use most homes use the more versatile materials such as brass and metal handles which can withstand repeated use and can adapt to most household interiors.
