Care for your Mailbox
If you don't want your mailbox to age gracefully wash it regularly, maybe when
washing the car, and remember; Stainless Steel needs loving care as well.
Use a specific stainless cleaner, these are generally available from your supermarket. We recommend and sell Nanocoat 2:1 for protection against "tea staining" and in corrosive environments.
