Copper Care and Maintenance

 

Copper and Brass require special care and maintenance for that everlasting sparkle.

Please read the cleaning instructions for your products carefully:

  

  1. Copper Water Bottles
  • Always clean your copperware by hand and avoid dishwasher as the detergent can cause oxidation leading to permanent damage.
  • A simple, soft wash cloth is best to wipe clean the bottle.
  • Dry the bottle immediately with a separate soft cloth or towel
  • Oxidation is a natural process of copper; this is not a fault. It only shows that your bottle is pure and its working towards providing you clean and safe water.
  • Should any tarnish occur, pour 1 Tsp of salt in a shallow bowl, cut a lemon into half, Dip the halves into salt until completely covered and Gently scrub the outside of the bottle circular motion, Rinse and Dry thoroughly.
  • Inside of the bottle can be cleaned by adding 1 Tsp salt and squeezing half a lemon, Add water and rinse thoroughly.
  • SQUEAKY LIDS -Pure copper bottles do have the annoying habit of squeaking at the lid! The best thing you can do to reduce this sound is to rub a small amount of oil into the threading on the bottle cap. We recommend using any cooking oil you have at home (coconut or olive oil work just fine). Simply apply a pinch of oil onto your fingertips and then rub this into the threading on the bottle cap. Repeat this process as and when required.
  1. Copper Mule Mugs
  • After you finish your beverage, rinse with mild soapy water and dry it immediately with a soft cloth.
  • Any left-over water or moisture can result in oxidation and tarnishing of your copper mugs, it's essential to dry them properly to preserve the shine.
  • Should any tarnish occur, pour 4 Tsp of salt in a shallow bowl, cut a lemon into half, Dip the halves into salt until completely covered and gently scrub the inside and outside of the mug in circular motion, Rinse and Dry thoroughly.
  1. Brass Champagne glasses or other brassware
  • Rinse your brassware with mild soapy water, do not scrub.
  • Dry once with a soft cloth and dry again with a separate dry soft cloth to remove any dampness or moisture. 
  • Should any tarnish occur, pour 4 tsp of salt in a shallow bowl, cut a lemon into half, Dip the halves into salt until completely covered and gently scrub in circular motion, Wipe with a damp cloth and dry thoroughly.
  • Another cool home-made tip, if you run out of lemon is to use, 2 squirts of toothpaste (plain not flavoured) and ½ tsp salt, make a paste and rub it on the brassware with a muslin or any other soft cloth; Wipe down with a slightly damp soft cloth.
  • Store bought metalware polish like Brasso work well too.
