What Houzz contributors are saying:
Copper Cleaning Cream Copperbrill is a cleaning paste for copper surfaces. Mauviel and de Buyer are two popular brands. How often you use the paste depends on the look desired. To maintain a shiny surface, clean after every use; to create a nice copper patina, you need to clean with the paste only occasionally.Here’s how to use the paste: First, rinse the pan thoroughly.Then, using a soft sponge or cloth, rub a small amount of the paste all over the copper surface.Next, wash the pan under a running faucet.Dry the pan.Other products to check out include: Wright’s Copper (Brown) Cream Polish; Twinkle Brass & Copper Cleaning Kit; and Hagerty Heavy Duty Copper, Brass & Metal Polish.
7. Copper pots on display. Nothing looks quite so inviting in the kitchen as a row of gleaming copper pots hung over the stove. Although, to keep them shiny, you may want to hang yours over the kitchen island instead.8. Pitchers filled with flowers. Enamelware and creamy ironstone pitchers of all sorts, new and antique, make excellent and easy flower holders. Plunk in a big armful of blooms or a bundle of fall branches, and you're done.
