Okay not EVERY doorknob is brass, but let’s be honest most of them are. But why?
It’s not just for the shiny look. There is a practical reason too that is especially important in 2020. Brass actually destroys bacteria. So this make the doorknob, which get touched hundreds if not thousands of times a day depending where the door is, essentially germ-proof. It’s also perfect if you have a lot of kids running around your house. Just one more protection along with your hand sanitizer and wipes.
