Q:i had a housekeeper put CLR in my copper bathroom sink. It looks like the copper finish came off. Is there anyway to restore it? Do you have a product that we can use on it?

Answer This Question

A:  Hi Ellen, thank you for your interest in Sinkology! Our copper sinks are not lacquered, so they will change and react if copper cleaners are used on them. We would recommend continuing to use the sink as normal and with time and continued use your sink will start to darken and blend into a more even finish! I have attached a link to our website below and this will give you an idea on how copper reacts and how to care for it when the patina is removed! https://www.sinkology.com/care/

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hello, The good news is copper is a living finish and it will always come back to his natural finish. We recommend using a dish scouring pad and apply it gently on the spots. It will remove them and you should see some shiny copper, then wash the sink with some mild soapy water and let it air dry. About a week or two you should see the copper darken up and blend with the rest of the sink. After that you can use the copper armor once or twice a month to keep the sink shiny and beautiful. Thanks!

      Q:Can you use Bar Keepers Friend on this sink instead of Copper Care? I use it on my copper pans ...

      Answer This Question

      A:  Personally I wouldn’t. My sink instructions said to only use this product.

      by|Aug 17, 2019

        A:  This product cleans copper without removing the patina. Bar Keepers Friend removes the patina and restores copper to original "new" copper look. If that is the effect you desire than Copper CareIQ is not the product you need.

        by|Aug 18, 2019

          A:  First of all, if you want your sink to look like a bright, shiny new copper penny, you don't want a copper sink. I installed a pair of these Sinkology beaten copper sinks in my master bathroom. They have a rich patina to them that uniquely mellows each over time, based on what comes into contact with them. Even toothpaste and spatters from soft soap dispensers will leave trails in the finish. Although I have never used Bar Keepers Friend, one of its primary ingredients of is Oxalic acid. Oxalic acid is a relatively strong acid, and from the description, Bar Keepers Friend sounds like it would be an excellent scouring product for removing baked-on soil, tea stains and other pot stains, rust, hard water stains, etc. from copper cookware. They recommend wearing gloves. Basic rule of thumb for these beautiful copper sinks is: Never put any of these caustic products in contact with them, or you will destroy the patina. I purchased this Copper CareIQ Kit. I initially coated the sink with the Copper Armor and rubbed it with the Microfiber Cloth (which I never wash). I find what works best is to rinse the sink after brushing your teeth, or washing your hands, rubbing the surface gently with your hand. I keep the Microfiber Cloth close by, and just wipe the surface after each use of the sink, and maybe once a month give it an addition mist and rub with the Copper Armor . I never use harsh chemicals or cleaning products containing bleach or any kind of scouring agent. Copper armor spray wax is made with Brazilian carnauba wax, and thus any carnauba wax product should perform the same protection.

            A:  Yes you can , I use tarnex a liquid that makes it look like a new copper penny

            by|Aug 20, 2019

              A:  Hi there! We do not recommend using Bar Keepers Friend on copper sinks as it will strip the patina from the sink. We have several cleaning and care resources on our website that you may find useful: http://www.sinkology.com/care/ If you have any additional cleaning/care questions, don't hesitate to reach out. Thank you!

                    We recently installed a beautiful hammered copper sink, unfortunatly it very easily has become discolored. The sinkolgy wax is supposed to help even out and prevent discoloration, neither of which it has done. (2) Bottles are very small ( 1.7 oz). I will continue to use the product because I have it or until I find something else that actually does work.

                    I don't notice a difference when using this item
                    It was recommended to use this product at least once per month with copper sinks. When I purchased my new copper sink, I also purchased this copper armor. I used it as per the directions and my sink still discolored very quickly
