Caring for Copper - Products to use

Cleaning and caring for copper involves a few key practices to maintain its lustrous appearance. Regularly dust the surface to prevent the accumulation of dirt and debris, which can contribute to tarnishing. Use a mild, pH-balanced soap and warm water to clean copper items, avoiding harsh chemicals that may damage the finish. For tarnished copper, a specialized copper cleaner or a homemade paste of vinegar and salt can be effective. To preserve the metal's sheen, apply a thin layer of protective wax or oil. Embrace the evolving patina as copper ages, adding character to the metal while maintaining its inherent beauty.
