Cleaning Sealed Copper
10/30/2017 | The Metal Peddler
Although most of our products are sold as raw copper some have an
applied patina with a high grade polyurethane clear coat. This clear
coat lacquer protects your piece from tarnishing further and from
damaging the patina. Care & maintenance is very simple and easy with this finish. Some simple dos and don'ts will protect it for many many years.
*Do dust lightly with a soft cloth only. Do not apply furniture polish!
warm soapy water on a soft cloth to remove food splashes and
fingerprints. A mild detergent, such as Dawn, will be sufficient. Buff
with a clean & dry soft cloth.
*Do not use abrasive scourers or sponges.
*Do not use kitchen or bathroom cleaning products, such as Mean Green, Mr Muscle etc. These will damage the surface. Avoid acidic or ammonia based cleaners - commercial or home made - that might "eat through" the protection and ruin your beautiful patina.
