Copper Sinks Shine With Easy Maintenance

Copper Kitchen Sinks

Copper is a valuable substance these days. Pennies made before 1982, which are 95 percent copper, are worth more than their monetary value. Copper kettles and pans are eye candy in the kitchen as long as they’re polished. Well, as long as your copper sink’s patina finish doesn’t get damaged, the copper requires no maintenance at all. Scrubbing or polishing the sink will actually damage the finish and thereby compromise the copper.

To clean the sink, simply wash the basin with mild  soap and pat it dry with a soft cloth. This indestructible metal will last a lifetime. If you’re looking for bathroom sinks in copper, these are the ones that made my A list.

With kettles and pans, manufacturers have specific instructions to remove the finish from the product because it is used for cooking.  This is why those pans need all that wretched scrubbing and polishing. I purchased a copper kettle and once it needed maintenance I stashed it under the sink never to be seen again. Every night I beg the copper fairy to polish it for me and leave it glistening atop the stove, but she is deaf to my cry for help. It is such a relief knowing that these sinks don’t involve that torture. If you’re remodeling the kitchen and you have a shiny collection of copper cookware a copper kitchen sink just might complete the look. I applaud your polished copper cookware that you’re not ashamed to have on display.
