Antibacterial cleaning products are Everywhere! From dish soap to surface cleansers, we are able to eradicate potentially growing bacteria and germs from our surfaces. In our hectic lives, wouldn’t it be great if some surfaces could be germ resistant without the extra cleanser?
Fortunately, copper possesses antimicrobial properties that essentially make it a germ killer. Amazingly, copper surfaces kill 99.9% of bacteria within 2 hours. Bacteria such as E. Coli and Staphylococcus aureus are eliminated on a non-coated copper surface. Over 300 copper alloys have been registered with the US EPA as materials that kill these bacteria. Sound unbelievable?

With regular cleaning, copper surfaces maintain these germ fighting properties over time.
What better way to go green and decorate your home than a gorgeous hand made copper sink? Choosing a copper sink for your bathroom or kitchen will actually help you fight germs, not collect them. You’ll save some money on the antibacterial cleansers and have a beautiful and incredibly practical sink.
