Time to Clean and Polish the Copper

My collection of copper pots and pans above my kitchen island always looks so beautiful after a good cleaning.

Last week, my housekeepers took on the task of cleaning and polishing many of the copper pieces I display in my Bedford, New York home. Copper is a soft, malleable, and ductile metal with a distinct pinkish-orange color. It's used as a conductor of heat and electricity, as a building material, and as a popular metal for cookware and other home decorating items. Over time, copper loses its luster and acquires a tarnish when exposed to air, so it is important to clean it regularly - my copper is cleaned every few months.
