Our Copper Sink Patina (color) and hammering pattern may vary due to the handmade quality of our products. Dimensions may vary slightly, therefore we recommend having your sinks in hand before any openings are cut into your counter tops.
Copper Sinks Direct Authentic Mexican copper sinks are not sealed which makes the patina (color) a "living finish". In a copper kitchen sink, do not place aluminum or hot pots or pans directly on the bottom of the sink as this will cause a ring that is either lighter or darker on the bottom of the copper sink. Soap pumps that spill over in the same place can also remove the coppers patina. Do NOT use acidic or corrosive products such as vinegar, abrasive cleaners, including "Soft Scrub", copper cleaners (these will shine the sink just like the picture on the jar), citric acids like lemon (if left on the bottom, once removed, a shiny spot will remain), tomato products (i.e. Spaghetti or BBQ sauce) or harsh chemicals or cleaners (i.e. bowl cleaner, lime away products, etc). These substances can strip the coppers living patina to a shiny and sometimes pinkish copper color. Should this happen not to worry, the natural oxidation (combination of air and water) will darken the copper sink back naturally.
Use Copper Sink Care copper sink wax or conditioning oil to help protect from changes. If lightening has occurred, allow the copper sink to darken before using the wax or oil. Apply as directed. Copper Sink Care products are all natural, food and people safe.
Copperhead Sinks are made from recycled, reclaimed, sustainable “green”, eco friendly copper. While copper is still mined in the United States and other countries, we feel that with the new push to be green living friendly and earth conscious, reclaimed copper is the only way to create our copper sinks.
Reclaimed, recycled copper is one of the most recycled metals; copper can be reclaimed over and over again. It is one of the most durable metals allowing it to be re created into new and functional copper products. Copper that has been reclaimed also saves on energy as it requires 85% more energy to produce newly mined copper ore.
