Because CopperSmith offers an extensive product line that is crafted using natural metals and resources, our maintenance and care instructions may vary depending on the product or finish.
Copper is naturally antibacterial, so your copper products do most of the work to keep themselves clean and sanitary when it is unsealed. Unsealed copper products will age naturally and maintain their anti-microbial finish and can be characterized as maintenance-free since scratches and blemishes will blend in and even out over time.
Many of our customers love to watch their unsealed copper change over time in their home, while others wish to preserve the patina of their choice. Either way, cleaning is easy! Simply wash your copper product with mild soap and water to remove most surface-level stains and tarnish.
Please Note: that we cannot predict exactly how quickly your copper product will patina. Copper interacts with its environment and organically deepens in color and tone as time passes. Depending on which patina you chose, the color will eventually stabilize in a deep, rich tone.
