Natural copper is such a beautiful metal and easy to keep clean.
I like to keep my natural copper jewelry clean by occasional cleaning it in warm soapy water and then polish with a soft cloth.
If my copper does show signs of tarnish, as copper naturally does over time, you can clean your jewelry using one of the following methods to restore its original shine:
- Table salt and vinegar – pour salt and vinegar over your jewelry and gently rub into the jewelry until any grime or tarnishing is removed. Rinse with water and polish with a soft, dry cloth.
- Salt and lemon – pour salt on half of a lemon and rub over jewelry, or pour salt and squeezed lemon juice onto jewelry and gently rub in. Rinse with water and polish with a soft, dry cloth.
When your copper is not in use, store in plastic bags to slow down the tarnishing process.
