Polished Copper will begin to patina as it reacts with its environment. However, if the desire is to maintain the bright, polishedlook, it is easy to protect. For basic cleaning, use mild soap and warm water. Abrasives should never be used as they may affect the finish.
When the copper begins to patina a quality copper polish cream and any good copper wax to maintain its original shine and luster.
Copper, as well brass, is a durable materials, however, it is soft and can be scratched, scuffed and dented fairly easily. Keep that in mind when bringing glasses, utensils and cleaning materials into contact with your sink or tubs.
For ordinary cleaning, use nothing but a soft, clean cloth and mild dish detergent followed by a thorough clear water rinse. Wipe dry with a clean, soft cloth.
Stains and tarnish should be removed with a small amount of good quality brass or copper cleaner. Rub lightly to lift the discoloration, let dry, then polish with a soft, clean, dry cloth.
Minor surface scuff and very light scratches can be removed with fine automotive rubbing compound followed by brass polish.
Deeper scratches may require wet sanding with "wet or dry" sandpaper followed by rubbing compound, finishing with brass polish. The severity of the scratch determines the coarseness of the sandpaper grit with which to start. For very deep scratches we suggest starting with 220 grit followed by grits of 320, 400 and 600 progressively. In all cases use the finest grit that will work to remove the scratch.
We do not recommend any paint-type coatings be applied to the sink, as the coating will eventually wear through, leaving you with two dissimilar surface materials to maintain - neither of which complements the other.
A bare brass or copper sink can always be brought back to a bright mirror polish with readily available materials (and elbow grease), even if it becomes badly scratched and tarnished.
NOTE: The oils from your hands will cause the metal to oxidize faster in those areas than in others. Over time it will all blend in as the rest of the metal oxidizes, but if you happen to get some unsightly fingerprints showing up on your copper product early, they can easily be removed by polishing with a proper copper polish. We recommend a polish called Brasso, which is available at most hardware stores.
It is easier than most people think.
All Amoretti Brothers copper cookware are made with 100% pure copper and then tinned on the cooking surface.
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: use copper polish to keep copper from tarnishing and free from white spots.
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!
For the interior, WHEN YOU RECEIVE YOUR NEW COPPER COOKWARE PLEASE WASH IT WITH DISH SOAP AND FRESH WATER BEFORE THE FIRST USE. Hand washing is recommended. Hand wash with hot, soapy water and avoid using abrasive materials to clean, and in particular do not use bleach.
All copper cookware can be used on gas, electric, halogen stove tops, and in the oven.
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.
Please contact us if you would like more information about that email@example.com.
TO AVOID ANY PROBLEM, WE ALWAYS RECOMEND A PROFESSIONAL INSTALL YOUR LIGHTS.
Fixtures should only require a light dusting to stay beautiful. If you find yourself needing to clean your fixture, use only the mildest soaps, softest cloths and gentle pressure.
Our lights do not come with a bulb. Please read the tech spec of each product before buying it.
If your fixtures are made from unlacquered copper or brass, they will develop a patina over time. Use gloves when handling and installing unlacquered fixtures to avoid fingerprints and smudges. The oils from your hands will cause the metal to oxidize faster in those areas than in others. Over time it will all blend in as the rest of the metal oxidizes, but if you happen to get some unsightly fingerprints showing up on your light early, they can easily be removed by polishing with a proper copper polish. We recommend a polish called Brasso, which is available at most hardware stores.
Clean with warm, soapy water. Do not use any harsh abrasives or cleaning solutions. Dry thoroughly.
