Maintaining your Joseph Giles product

Our products come in a variety of metal finishes, each requiring a different method of cleaning and maintenance. While you are welcome to use your own cleaning products, it’s important to note that some chemicals may damage the finish on our products. If you are sourcing your own, please read through our Guide to Finishes.

 

For your convenience, we have sourced a range of tried and tested products which we believe will keep your products looking and feeling their best. These are available to purchase directly from Joseph Giles and will come with a soft lint-free cloth and fabric gloves. Alternatively, these items can be purchased through good home retailers.
