Cleaning the exterior of your solid nylon shell
The exterior nylon surface of your candle shell is easily cleaned. It may be washed with soap and water (not the brass). Other effective cleaners for the nylon are denatured alcohol and store brand cleaners such as Fantastic or 409. Please remove the brass follower before cleaning the nylon candle.
Cleaning the brass follower and socket
Our polished brass followers and sockets are protected with a clear lacquer coating. Without this coating, the brass will tarnish. You can greatly extend the life of your lacquered brass appointments with a little maintenance. Much like the clear coat on an automobile, using wax will protect the lacquer. Use only a clear wax or neutral shoe polish. Every few months, rub a little wax on your brass, and using a soft cloth, buff it to a nice shine. Please do not touch or clean the brass follower until it has fully cooled.
