The beauty of copper and similar metals is its living finish or patina. It builds over time and works as a protective coating. The patina is a rich weathered finish with light and dark tones complementing each other and creating the unique effect of copper.
Wash with soap, water and a soft cloth or sponge. We recommended the following soaps: Dawn Ultra (Original Blue Color), Ultra Ivory Dish Liquid (Classic Scent White Color) and Palmolive Original (Green Color). Wipe off the surface to remove standing water, whitening toothpaste, acidic substances, etc. Acidic substances create shiny spots, yet over time copper heals itself and with use the color will begin to return to its original shade. For extra protection use a high-quality carnauba wax (with no polishing agent). Acidic substances like Lime, Lemon, Tomato Juice, etc tend to leave shiny spots.
