Brass Handles

Copper is bactericidal and medical copper is expensive. But brass is a copper alloy and so works as well, just takes longer, and brass is cheap and widely available.

In our house, we bought cheap brass handles World of Brass (now available at Screwfix cheaper), dumped them in nail polish remover overnight to take the lacquer off and tadah: infection control on the double cheap. And it’s a one-time cost - it doesn’t wear out or wear off. Will do a make on this at some point.
