How to Care for Your Copper Tongue Cleaner: Keep it As Good As New

Our  PAAVANI Tongue Cleaner is made of 100% copper, a highly revered metal in Ayurveda due to its naturally antimicrobial and antibacterial properties. In ancient Ayurvedic texts, copper is indicated to help heal various ailments, such as digestive upset, conditions associated with a weakened immune system, inflammation and more.

Why Choose a Copper Tongue Cleaner?

Copper tongue cleaners have been used for centuries in Ayurvedic practices. Copper’s natural ability to self-clean makes it an excellent material for oral hygiene tools. It helps remove bacteria and toxins from the tongue, promoting better breath and overall oral health. To ensure its effectiveness and longevity, your copper tongue cleaner requires proper care. Follow these simple steps to keep your favorite oral hygiene tool looking like new and performing at its best.

Tips to Care for Your Copper Tongue Cleaner

Rinse After Each Use

After every use, rinse your copper tongue cleaner thoroughly with warm water. This simple step helps remove any residue and prevents buildup.

Dry Completely

After cleaning, ensure your tongue cleaner is completely dry. Use a soft cloth to wipe away any moisture. Copper can tarnish when exposed to water for extended periods, so thorough drying is crucial.

Store Properly

Store your tongue cleaner in a dry place to avoid exposure to moisture. A small storage bag, like your PAAVANI cloth bag or a dry spot in your bathroom cabinet, works well. Proper storage prevents tarnishing and keeps your tongue cleaner ready for use.

Polish Occasionally

If your tongue cleaner starts to look dull, you can polish it using a commercial copper polish or a homemade mixture of flour, salt and vinegar. Apply the polish, rub gently, rinse thoroughly, and dry. Polishing not only restores shine but also removes any lingering tarnish.

Avoid Harsh Chemicals

Refrain from using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials on your copper tongue cleaner. These can damage the copper surface and reduce its effectiveness. Stick to natural cleaning methods and mild abrasives like baking soda.

Deep Cleaning Techniques

Pure copper is subject to oxidation (the removal of electrons from the copper), which creates discoloration on your tongue cleaner. Regular rinsing is essential, but deep cleaning ensures your tongue cleaner remains free of tarnish and bacteria. To help keep your tongue cleaner looking shiny & new, we suggest occasionally cleaning it following one of these simple methods:

Lemon & Salt

1. Use a lemon wedge covered in salt to scrub the oxidation off of your copper tongue cleaner.
2. Rinse with water & then wipe it dry with a clean cloth.

Vinegar & Salt

1. Clean your tongue cleaner using a boiled mixture of vinegar & salt (approximately 3 parts vinegar to 1 part salt).
2. Let your tongue cleaner soak in the solution for 10-15 minutes.
3. Rinse with water & then wipe it dry with a clean cloth.

Baking Soda & Water

1. Make a paste made of baking soda & water.
2. Apply the paste to the tongue cleaner & scrub gently with a soft brush.
3. Rinse well.

Benefits of Proper Care

Investing extra time in adequately caring for your copper tongue cleaner pays off with a longer-lasting, more effective tool. By following these tips, you can keep your tongue cleaner in like-new condition, ensuring it optimally supports your oral hygiene routine, a cleaner mouth and a healthier you!
