Copper pots, utensils and serveware are quality items with beautiful hues that light up the room with bright caramel colors and last for ages. However, it is inevitable that copper will become tarnished, which is why a copper cleaner is important to have on hand whenever copper kitchen or display items are purchased. Tarnish is caused when the metal is exposed to air, chemicals and oils which oxidizes the copper and leaves it with darker than the original color. These copper cleaners will remove the unsightly dark splotches by changing the pH of the metal and restoring the natural golden shine. Vases, charger plates, pots, pans and more will last forever and look as good as new with regular shining.
