Copper, Bronze and Brass Care

2024.02.06  Metalcraft Care Repairs

The following are precautions and care instructions for using copper, bronze and brass products in your daily life for many years to come.

  • For all copper, bronze and brass products, no special care is required, but occasionally wipe off any stains or finger marks with a soft cloth.
  • When you wash the product in water, wipe it dry with a soft cloth such as cotton to remove any moisture.


For brass kettles and teapots

Brass teapot’s body is made of brass, silver-plated, and then colored with Ibushi, antique color. When you use the kettle over a fire, they can be used in the same way as aluminum or stainless-steel water kettles. However, please be careful that the fire only touches the bottom of the teapot. After use, wash with a soft sponge and neutral detergent and wipe it dry. Do not use abrasives as they will remove the Ibushi, antique color and silver plating and cause scratches.
