How To Make A Copper Polish

Cleaning : Kitchen Cleaning

Copper items look really good - at least that is whilst they are new.

However, even though copper is quite unreactive, as metals go, over time it will corrode.

This is what gives copper the greenish tinge, when it reacts with oxygen in the air to move a copper oxide that is greenish blue in colour.

However there are many expensive cleaning products on the market, so it is not the end of the world.

But even better, you can make your own cleaning product instead! Just mix together some salt, flour and vinegar in equal quantity, and then this will form a sort of paste which you can rub over the affected item.

Then just use a little warm water and it will, with a little bit of gentle elbow grease, be restored to its former glory.
