Un-lacquered Copper Products: Care Instructions 

  • Products that are used to carry/store water or food are not lacquered. This ensures that the water/food comes in direct contact with copper giving you multiple health benefits.
  • Wash water bearers daily with a soft cloth and a detergent/metal cleaning agent. Wipe dry all traces of water after washing, else the utensil will get water stains. Washing and wiping on a daily basis will help retain the coppery shine on your product and will also prevent the copper patina.
  • When copper is exposed to atmosphere, natural oxidation process causes it to darken. Wiping your copperware regularly and rubbing it with tamarind/lemon occasionally will ensure that it maintains its shine.
  • Water stored in your copper utensil needs to be replaced every twelve hours.
  • It is not safe to expose copper to food acids so refrain from storing juices or any other liquids apart from water in your copper utensils.
