As you know, Aranmula kannadi is made up with pure brass. so exposing it in to the atmosphere for sometime will make an oxide layer on top of the metal surface and it will loose its shiny surface after a few months. so cleaning aranmula kannadi regularly is the best way to keep them looks like fresh and shiny.
How to polish aranmula kannadi frame?
You can use any metal polish ( specially made for brass) for cleaning the aranmula kannadi surface. in Indian market two famous products are there named – Dhara and brasso. we recommend dhara since it gives more result.
you can apply a thin layer of metal polish and then polish with mild cotton clothes. as you polish more, it will be more shiny.
Can I apply the metal polish in mirror part?
yes, you can use the polish in the mirror part also. BUT IN A VERY MILD QUANTITY. also while polishing make sure that you are using very soft cotton material and make sure that there are no stones or hard materials between the mirror and the cloth. if anything like that will result scratches on the mirror surface.
Can i use the cleaning kit comes with part of mirror packet?
yes, you can use. the default cleaning kit contains red oxide powder, and which is less efficient than the metal polish we discussed above. in earlier days the metal polish was not available in the market and thats why we used to pack the cleaning kit with mirror. so now mirrors comes without the cleaning kit as well.
