Due to the nature of our products, we cannot supply care instructions for all types of materials. Our vintage items can show imperfections due to age or past use. Please send an email to email@example.com for advice on care of our vintage items. Selected items can be cared for as per the recommendations below.
Our vintage wine coolers have had a past life and may be delivered with small surface scratches, or even minor imperfections on the surface. Graphics and Logos are also often slightly blemished. These conditions all form part of the history of the product and no attempt should be made to remove or polish out these imperfections.
Best care is to use a soft dry polishing cloth and buff the items regularly. Do not leave the coolers wet, or full of ice for long periods of time, as the water inside can stain the cooler. A soft sponge and small amount of Dishwashing liquid can also be used to keep dirt and oil off the item. A little Silvo on a soft cloth may also be used to remove stubborn stains. Aluminium is best not used outside or left outside.
When using ice in the coolers, the condensation that forms on the outside should be removed as soon as the wine has been drunk!. The condensation can lead to minor staining on the outside.
Silvo on a soft cloth may also be applied. Aluminium is not suitable for outdoor use.
Brass items can be buffed up with a soft dry cloth to ensure years of pleasure. A little Brasso on a soft cloth may also be applied. Brass is not suitable for outdoor use.
Periodically you may treat your leather with a leather protector or moisturize with a leather conditioner. Avoid direct sunlight as it may cause the leather to fade or dry out.
