A Tip to Take care of our copper product!

For antique products especially metal or copper products, having a rust or trace of using will make the product look more attractive and unique! However, here some advice for people who wants to take care of them.

Polish Them Regularly
Tarnish is a layer of corrosion that occurs on metals, including copper, silver, and brass. It’s a completely normal reaction that happens over time due to exposure to water and air. To keep tarnish at bay, we recommend polishing copper every six months with a specialty copper cleaner.

You can buy one (like Bar Keepers Friend or Wright’s Copper Cream) or you can whip up a homemade mixture with ingredients you probably have on hand. Here are three ways to clean copper naturally

– Lemon Juice and Baking Soda

Combine lemon juice (or vinegar) with baking soda and stir until mixed completely. Apply to the surface and buff in a circular motion using a soft, clean cloth, then rinse and dry.

– Ketchup

Apply a layer of ketchup to your copper pan and rub across the surface. (The tomatoes in ketchup contain an acid that helps to clean off tarnish.) Rinse and dry.

– Lemon and Salt

Cut a lemon in half and apply table salt to the cut section. Rub the lemon on the surface and add more salt as needed. Rinse and dry.

– Vinegar and Salt

Create a paste using vinegar (or lemon juice) and salt. Apply to the surface and buff using a soft cloth, then rinse and dry.
