Another method of removing oxidation stains from your copper objects is to use vinegar, a great natural ally for housekeeping. Either by making them take a bath: for this, fill a basin of hot water and 50 cl of white vinegar and let the brassware soak for a few minutes. Either by mixing the vinegar with coarse salt and rubbing with a clean cloth. Thorough rinsing too!
3. Baking soda to polish copper objects
To overcome stubborn stains on your copper objects, you can also use baking soda that is no longer present for cleaning the house. It is even more effective with white vinegar.

Then dry your objects, you will find that they shine like never!

Do you know black soap for its bodily benefits, perhaps less for its household uses? It is a very effective natural product for all types of surfaces, and which turns out to be a very good cleaner also for copper. To use it, fill a basin with hot water and dilute 4 tablespoons of liquid black soap in it. Immerse your saucepans in this mixture and leave to act for ten minutes. Wipe them with a clean cloth and enjoy the result. An ecological gesture of maintenance that will extend their lifespan!
5. Vinegar, flour and salt to make the copper shine
These three ingredients make up a real beauty mask for your copper objects!

A strange mixture that you will have to apply to your brass instruments while leaving to act for an hour. Then rinse your objects with a cloth moistened with hot water, then polish with a cloth for an ultimate result.
