Although Urushi doesn't need maintenance due to its superb durability, following maintenance will make a difference in the long run.

 

It takes 6 months to reach near full hardeness, so avoid dropping, sudden shocks, etc.

 

Do not expose the urushi to direct sunlight for prolonged period of time.

This will cause the surface of urushi to deteriorate eventually. 

 

If you want to repolish, rub the urushi with "swirl removing compound" + 100% clean cotton cloth.

Must wear Latex gloves, to prevent possible urushi allergy, even if unlikely to happen.

the compound must be finer than #3000 compound.

Make sure cotton is free of dirt, otherwise scratches can occur.

Do Not use #3000 compound, this will cause scratches that's visible under strong light.

 

You may use small amount of baby oil on urushi to bring out shine.

Also put small amount of baby oil to threads if you want to.

 

To bring out more shine and protect the surface a bit, use (automotive) carnauba wax.

apply the wax with your fingers, wait 10 minutes, gently wipe with clean cotton cloth.
