Copper care instructions: To clean, hand wash with mild detergent, rinse well and dry with a soft clean cloth. Copperware should never be left to air dry. As copper is a metal that tarnishes easily, it is normal for it to develop a dull and dark bluish green coating (patina) as a protection from corroding. Periodical polishing with a metal polish like Brasso will help maintain its shine. For a natural alternative, polishing with lemon juice will also remove tarnish and retain shine.
Warning: Not microwave, dishwasher or oven safe.
