Copper Cleaning + Care

Everyday tips to care for your unique copper surface

Simple Tips for Daily Copper Sink Care

Copper has the incredible ability to be a striking focal point for your home’s kitchen or bathroom. Its unique beauty is what we love about it. Caring for your sink or tub’s surface is part of helping it remain as eye-catching as ever, especially as it changes and reacts to the way you use it every day. Sinkology copper sinks are surprisingly simple to maintain, and we have the tips, guides, and resources you need to enjoy your copper sink or tub for life.

Unlike other sinks, copper sinks develop their own natural protection through its ever-changing surface, or patina. You’ll notice that your copper sink develops rich, earthy tones that continue to evolve based on how you interact with it. With the right know-how and care, your copper sink’s beauty can last a lifetime without the need for harsh chemicals or overwhelming processes.

Tips for Copper Care

Daily care is important, and we’ve gathered some easy tips from our Sinkologists for everyday maintenance of your copper sink:

  • Clean after use with warm water, a gentle dish soap, and a soft cloth
  • As with any surface that comes in contact with food, avoid harsh and abrasive chemicals
  • Clear out food debris and dishes to prevent temporary discoloration
  • Use your Sinkology Copper CareIQ Kit to protect your copper sink’s finish. A monthly coating of Copper Armor is the best way to protect your sink and keep it looking as even and consistent as a living finish can look. 

If your copper sink does develop spotting, water stains, or areas of stripped patina, be patient. Your copper sink’s natural patina will repair these spots over time and with use.
