Maintenance and Care: Keeping copper utensils in good and shiny condition requires some effort and care. Necessary materials: Baking soda, Lemon, Salt, Flour, Soft cloth, Warm water, and Linseed oil.
Instructions: Wash the utensils: Start by washing your copper utensils with hot water and a mild soap. Rinse them thoroughly and dry them completely.
Create a paste: To remove stains and restore shine, mix baking soda and lemon juice in a bowl to form a paste. Apply this mixture to the stained areas of the utensils and let it sit for a few minutes.
Gently rub: Using a soft cloth or non-abrasive sponge, gently rub the stained areas with the paste. Baking soda and lemon will help eliminate stains and bring back the original shine of the copper.
Wash and rinse: After rubbing the stains, wash the utensils again with warm water and dry them well.
Polish with flour: To give them a shine, sprinkle some flour on a clean, dry cloth. Rub the copper utensils with this cloth in circular motions. This will give them a sparkling shine.
Protect with linseed oil: To prevent future stains and maintain shine, apply a thin layer of linseed oil to the copper utensils. Gently rub with a clean, dry cloth. The linseed oil will create a protective layer.
Proper storage: Store copper utensils in a dry place away from moisture to prevent stain formation.
By following these steps, your copper utensils will stay in excellent condition and retain their original shine. Remember, copper may develop a patina over time, giving it a unique look and enriching its beauty.
