If you are a copper bowl enthusiast, you have likely had your own experiences with them.
The problem with copper bowls is they do not have a clear plastic exterior, which makes it difficult to clean and maintain.
Many bowls come with a plastic coating that can cause corrosion, and the coating may not completely seal the bowl, which means you will be able to remove it and re-use it.
You can try removing the coating with a solvent, but there are some methods that are more reliable, and cleaner than just rubbing the bowl with a cloth.
For those of you who have tried these methods, let us explain how to remove a copper water bowl from its plastic coating, or at least remove the coating from the inside.
Clean the inside of the bowl first, by wiping with a paper towel, then wiping with your fingers.
Wipe the bowl lightly with a clean cotton cloth.
You can also use a cloth dipped in dish soap to get rid of any remaining residue.
Apply a clean, fresh, damp towel to the bowl.
Repeat the process until all of the residue has been removed.
If you have copper bowls from a company or a shop, this will not remove the contamination, but it will remove the protective coating.
Now, you will want to make sure you are using the correct cleaning solvent.
It is recommended that you use the most solvent that can penetrate the plastic coating.
The solvent should be diluted in a solvent that will allow the solvent to penetrate the copper surface, or the coating.
If you have an electric dryer or water bath, you can use the solvent directly on the copper surfaces.
Some people find that using the solvent on the inside helps the cleaning process go faster.
We do not recommend using a solvent on a metal surface that has copper deposits.
If that is the case, you may want to check the solvent that is being used on the surface before you start.
When you remove the copper coating, you are left with two areas to clean.
The first area is the top of the copper bowl.
Remove the copper plate, which will reveal the inside, as well as the top portion of the plastic cover.
Using the cloth or towel, wipe the copper, then wipe again on the bottom portion of your bowl.
Repeat this process for the other surface, and rinse the bowl thoroughly with a water-based cleaning solvent and a fresh, clean towel.
Next, remove the top part of the lid.
After washing the bowl again, you should see a clear, smooth coating.
This is where the coating should be removed.
