How to Care for Your Copper Sink , Ingram, Texas

Once a tradition in castles and farmhouses alike, copper sinks have become a stylish, gleaming addition to any contemporary home. Not only are they easy to maintain, but unlike porcelain or stainless steel models, they also curb the growth of bacteria. Whether you already have a copper sink or are thinking about installing one, the experts from Rustic Sinks in Scottsdale, AZ, have the vital care tips you need to maintain your amenity.

Copper is a durable and enduring material that is well suited for sinks—as long as you pay attention to a few key details. For example, copper corrodes when it is exposed to acid, so be careful to avoid direct or prolonged contact with lemons, limes, tomatoes, grapefruit, and other acidic fruits. Vinegar and mustard can also negatively interact with the copper. To avoid damage, run the water when you’re rinsing acidic fruits. After exposure to acids, wipe your sink thoroughly with dish soap and water, just in case.

Be gentle, and never use abrasive cleaners, even if they are intended for kitchen use. These cleaners may remove your sink’s luminous patina.

To preserve your copper sink’s patina, apply a quality plumbing wax about twice a year to the surface. You may also enlist a professional to adhere a lacquer finish, which will help seal up the copper and prolong its look. With proper care, your copper will shine even more beautifully in the years to come.
