Why do i continue to show low salt?

I do have the same problem every few days all I just discover is that I remove the cell tube and with the help of a long thin knife I clean the surface of the copper cell both in between and outsides. There is always dry salt on the surfaces and after the cleaning the sensor reading is in acceptable level so the chlorinator is working perfect without any 91 massage. To work it every day in order to avoid this happens very often and of course every time you hear the beap sound you have to repeat the scrutching and cleaning with the nife,

How can I clean/polish copper cabinet hardware

If you want to clean or polish your copper cabinet hardware, there are few way to go, like cabinet hardware (Knobs & Pulls) which you believe are copper it's really zinc casting with copper plated.on which is applied a thin coat of polish to prevent oxidation, and that plate about two atoms wide and any sort of a harsh or chemical clean on it will wipe out it.

The finest thing you can follow is to take a jewelry polishing rag and go over the Cabinet hardware a bit. However, I don't see that it is offensive to have a copper pull that has turned color and has a "patina" on it. That is sometimes viewed as beneficial in decorating.
The zinc pulls with copper plating are made so after few years replaced with new pulls.

My niece brush her teeth and left the toothpaste waste on my copper sink overnight - the next day everything obsorbed into the sink - how to fix it?

  • Polish with Bar Keepers Friend and fine steel wool. Use plenty of elbow grease. Keep the kettles extra bright by washing well with soap and water after polishing.
  • Dip half a lemon in kosher salt and rub well. Then polish with a soft cloth and beeswax for a deep, lasting copper shine.
  • Table salt and vinegar remove oxidation from copper.
  • To clean a copper kettle or boiler, you need to remove soap scum and hard water deposits as well as oxidation. Although a lightly oxidized copper piece can be cleaned with salt and lemon or vinegar, steel wool or a buffing wheel are required for heavy-duty copper cleaning.
  • Once your piece has a good shine, spray with a brightening product to maintain the clean, bright finish. Dust occasionally and wipe down with a cold, damp cloth.
hope i helped
