How does copper work against bacteria?

Copper is a natural resource with great medicinal benefits. Due to its antimicrobial effect, copper is considered a natural disinfectant and puts an end to bacteria and other pathogens.

These copper ions attack bacteria by destroying their cell walls. The DNA of the microbe is then also destroyed inside the cell, which leads to the death of the microbe.

What affects the antibacterial effect of the copper in our copper bottle?

Due to the oxygen, the surface changes over time and becomes dark. This discoloration prevents the antimicrobial effect of the copper surface of our copper bottle. We at Aalenaa strongly recommend that you rinse your copper bottle with citric acid before using it for the first time. The dark deposits on your copper bottle are not a quality defect, but a completely normal process. In order to keep the joy and the antibacterial effect of the copper for a long time, Aalenaa advises you to rinse your copper bottle with citric acid well at intervals, either in the form of a fresh lemon or ready-made citric acid, which can be bought in every supermarket. Please do not use any chemical detergent and do not put your copper bottle in the dishwasher. Aalenaa recommends: no dishwasher for copper bottles! At Aalenaa, we have found that neither removes the dark evidence. If you don't have citric acid handy, vinegar will do.
