Care & Maintenance
Naturally, copper metal is corrosion resistant . Use a mild detergent or mild soap and a soft microfiber cloth only for the cleaning of your sink.
You can make another natural cleaner by mixing lemon juice (or vinegar) and baking soda into a sudsy mixture. Apply to the copper and buff with a soft cloth. Rinse with water and dry. These mixtures work because the acid in the vinegar or lemon juice strips the oxidized patina from the copper and the salt acts as a mild abrasive to remove the grime. You can also use lime juice instead of lemon.
Once your copper is shiny again, keep it cleaner, longer, by wiping a thin layer of mineral or linseed oil on it. Knowing how to clean copper, how to clean a copper sink and how to clean copper-bottom pans will keep these items beautiful.
Long ago, people in the Far East found that water stored in copper vessels tasted better and kept fresh longer. Scientists discovered that copper has an oligodynamic effect — which means copper can kill bacteria. It also kills viruses, algae, mold, spores, and fungi.
Studies have shown that water stored in a copper vessel for at least four hours acquires a certain quality — because copper leaches into the liquid. Since people today use water purifying systems, many of the healthy micronutrients are removed from their water. Drinking water out of a copper cup replenishes the copper stripped by purifying systems.
