The rest of the door hardware has to be removed especially the knobs. Most of the door knobs will have two screws which have to be removed. Remember to put on rubber gloves before starting the process to protect your hands from cleaning agents and chemicals. The level of tarnish collection on the hardware should be analyzed before starting the procedure. If it has not been cleaned for several years there is a need to soak it in concentrated ammonia for about sixty minutes. For lesser tarnishing this is not required.
