Keep Copper Clean & Clever Copper Creations

The Home & Garden Television (HGTV) network has selected copper as the “Color of the Month” for March and who are we to argue with the TV trendsetters? To stay in vogue, pull your copper pieces from the back of your kitchen cabinet and display them proudly. What's that? Your copper is tarnished and dull? We've got a fix!

Because copper can’t be cleaned in the dishwasher, it often accumulates black and brown spots and loses its luster. To clean your copper and restore its metallic brilliance, all you need is one lemon and a pinch of salt. Here's how:

1. Cut Your Lemon in Half

To get more juice from the lemon, microwave it for ten seconds.

2. Dip the Juicy Side of the Lemon in Salt

Make sure the side is liberally covered. It's okay to double-dip! 

3. Scrub Your Copper

Vigorously rub your copper and watch as the stains and tarnishes disappear! 

Rinse and Dry

Once you're satisfied with your shiny new copper, rinse the item quickly under warm water. Then, pat it dry with a soft cloth.
