Maintenance

 

Due to the 7-step finishing process, iron doors require little maintenance. Cleaning with a non-abrasive cleaner, such as Murphy's Oil Soap and a soft rag will bring back the luxurious shine of the iron. A gently cleaning with glass cleaner will help remove dirt, dust, smudges, and fingerprints from the hinged glass.
