It is best to hand wash the BioThane products with mild (bleach-free) soap and water as needed. If there is a peculiar scent, you may use a diluted white vinegar solution to rinse the gear with, then mild soap and water.

We recommend letting the gear air dry completely before placing back on your dog. This will ensure the dog's neck doesn't become exposed to an opportunistic microbes. It will also extend the life of certain metals used for the hardware.

Please note, martingales, metal buckles, etc are not solid brass; This means they likely contain a metal alloy (likely mixed with iron) that is susceptible to corrosion. Proper maintenance with gentle cleaning with mild soap, warm water and proper drying with a cloth will help extend the life of these items.
These items will not be replaced due to corrosion, normal wear and tear, etc. Please be sure this type of metal is best for you and your dog.

Lemon juice is an excellent cleaner for solid brass hardware to help prevent the inevitable patina. The discoloration will wash off (if it occurs), and can be avoided again with regular cleaning. 

UV light may fade the colors if they are left out in the sun for extended periods. 

Please note any insect repellents (especially DEET containing products, heartworm preventative, etc) may stain the materials; It is recommened to take the gear off before putting on these susbstances.

We recommend using a DEET-free/all natural insect repellent to ensure your gear does not become stained.
