How can I clean heavily tarnished
On heavily tarnished copper not easily cleaned by vigorous
polishing, use a very fine steel wool (grade 000 or
finer). Though it may leave tiny scratches, these should
disappear with use.
How should I polish lacquered
Lacquer is a clear coating applied to some copper items
to minimize upkeep. If the piece remains bright and
shiny over time, it is probably lacquered and only requires
cleaning with a damp cloth. If the piece darkens over
time, it probably is not lacquered and can be polished
using Wright’s Copper Cream. Even if a piece is lacquered,
the lacquers break down eventually, requiring you to
remove the remaining lacquer. Try Wright’s Copper Cream
to remove it. If this doesn’t work, try boiling the
piece in water first, then polishing it with Wright’s
Copper Cream. Note that the copper under the lacquer
may only be a thin plating over a base metal; removing
the lacquer may also remove the copper layer, so proceed

Are your products dangerous? Why are they marked “Keep

but they should not be ingested or come in contact with the eyes.
