How to Clean Copper Water Bottles and Vessels
Copper Utensils stain and darken over a period of time. This happens naturally, due to the oxidation process. At Goodly Gosh, we do not coat our Copper Water Bottle with any toxic lacquer coatings that are quite commonly used to give them shiny clean appearance all the time.
It is recommended to use Copper Water Bottle only for plain water and no citrus drinks or juices to be added.Please consult your medical practitioner if you suffer from a disease (particularly Wilson’s disease, and / or are on regular medicines.
Recommended dose / usage:
Drinking water from copper vessel has numerous health benefits but this does not mean that you can drink this water all day long.
One can follow this ancient Ayurvedic practice. Please note this is only a rough guide and you may want to consult your health professional for specific details particularly if you have concurrent medical conditions:
Keep water in a copper vessel overnight by your bedside and drink this water first thing in the morning when you wake up. This particular practice is very useful in stimulating your bowel movements in the morning. This practice will keep your digestive system very healthy and set your metabolism for rest of the day. You will feel very refreshed and light every day.
Remember you should not drink this copper vessel water all year long. Once you start drinking water stored in a copper vessel you can continue this practice for three months and then take a break for one month (stop drinking water stored in the copper vessel). After a one month break, you can continue drinking water again from a copper vessel for next three months. This gives our body time to remove any excess copper deposited in our body. The body has its own mechanism of eliminating the excess of anything.
Caution: If you drink water that contains higher than normal levels of Copper, you may experience nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, or diarrhoea.

Lemon and Salt Method:
This is the most traditional and easiest method of cleaning copper vessels. These two ingredients are easily available in any kitchen.
Simply take some salt in a bowl, cut a lemon in half and dip it into salt. Rub this lemon over the copper vessel. While doing this, gently squeeze the lemon so that lemon juice will mix with salt. Here, the salt will also act as a scrubber. Repeat this process until you cover the copper vessel completely. Once you are done you can clean it with your regular dishwasher and wash it thoroughly.
