Copper Cleaning & Care
It is true, copper will naturally darken without regular polishing, but with little care you can restore the shining of your pans in minutes.
For the EXTERIOR
Before polishing a copper item, you’ll want to give it a gentle wash. Get your copper all nice and sudsy with dish soap and warm water. Use a soft sponge (and a bit of elbow grease) to get it all off
Polishing (there are two main alternatives)
1) Use copper polish like Brasso to keep copper from tarnishing and free from white spots.
2) As a natural alternative, you can use a combination of lemon juice and salt and then wash it with fresh water. It will be spectacular again!
HOW TO CLEAN THE INTERIOR
hand washing is recommended. Hand wash with hot, soapy water and avoid using abrasive materials to clean, and in particular do not use bleach.
HOW TO PROTECT THE TIN LINING
Never heat empty tin-lined copper cookware or allow it to boil to a dry point, or add salt to your pan if the water is not completely boiled.
Every few years of usage the cooking surface can become thinner and should be re-tinned.
DISHWASHER? Avoid the Dishwasher and Steer Clear of Abrasive Products.
