Maintenance
Metal Works Products
Epic Armoury metal works products should be treated with wax or quality acid-free vegetable oil and stored in a dry place. Metal armor with leather parts requires separate maintenance for the leather.

Degreasing and Preparing Your Armour
When you first receive your armor, it may be covered in grease and oil used to protect it during storage and transport. Use a degreasing product or mineral spirits with a dry cloth or paper towels to remove the oil. For chainmail, which is harder to clean, use mineral spirits or another solvent, spraying it on the links or fully submerging the chainmail in a degreasing solution. After removing the oil, thoroughly dry your armor. Strong, warm sunlight is ideal, but a hairdryer or heat gun can also be used. Avoid overheating any leather parts.

Cleaning
Moisture is the enemy of armor and chainmail. If your armor gets wet, dry it thoroughly as soon as possible. After handling, wearing, or every six months of storage or display, wipe all metal surfaces with a clean cloth. Lightly oil the clean surface with a quality acid-free vegetable oil or apply a coating of wax. Allow the wax to dry for a couple of hours, then buff it lightly with a soft cloth.

Rust Prevention and Removal
Store your armor in a dry place and check it regularly for signs of rust. If rust appears, gently rub the affected area with a mildly abrasive pad dipped in wax or quality acid-free vegetable oil. Although Epic Dark products are specially treated to resist rust, they should still be treated with oil and kept in dry storage.

Leather Straps and Fittings
Clean leather parts by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap residue with a separate damp cloth, then dry the leather with a dry cloth. After cleaning, condition the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish. Apply a small amount of oil or polish with a clean cloth, rubbing in circles, and allow it to soak in before wiping away any excess with a final clean cloth.
