TREATMENT URUSHI OBJECTS

     GENERAL CAUTIONS
     NEW URUSHI OBJECTS 
     OLD WRUSHI OBJECTS


GENERAL CAUTIONS   Urushi objects are fairly well proof against many chemical substances. The only matters are that they are sensitive to are dryness and ultraviolet light. So keep them in a not too dry climate and on a shadowy place.

NEW URUSHI OBJECTS   After usage wash it with a pH-neutral liquid soap dissolved in warm water and a soft cotton cloth. Then rinse it thoroughly with warm water and dry it with a clean soft cotton cloth. In case of no daily use of the urushiware, put a glass of water near the object in the cupboard.

OLD URUSHI OBJECTS   First dust it off with a proper quality soft brush. For further conservation and restoration you can consult a specialist. When you display the object in a showcase, keep the environment in it at least 50% humidity for instance with glasses of water.
