How To Clean Your Copper Tongue Scraper

How to keep your

copper tongue scraper



A tongue scraper, also known as a tongue tingler, is a long, thin, piece of (usually) metal that has been rounded into a "U" shape. Stainless steel, copper, and plastic are the most commonly used materials when it comes to tongue scrapers. While plastic is affordable and can be gentler on your tongue, steel or copper tend to be the more effective options. 

Copper is seen as the ultimate tongue cleaner, particularly in Ayurvedic medicine, as copper is naturally anti-microbial and anti-bacterial, plus it provides vital enzymes that promote the survival of good bacteria and other important microbes in your mouth.

The only downside; copper can change colour and start to tarnish, so to make sure your tongue scraper is a zero waste purchase and lasts a lifetime, we have come up with our top tips on how to clean it naturally.

Method One

  • Cut two lemons or limes in half. 
  • Rub the tongue scraper with the lemon/lime, until tarnished areas are removed. 
  • If you want to, you can add salt to the lemon/lime half to make it more abrasive. 
  • Rinse and polish up with a clean, soft, dry cloth. 

  • Add vinegar and salt to a pan and bring it to boil. You’ll need approximately 3 parts vinegar to one part salt. 
  • Pour the liquid into a bowl and then place the tongue scraper in it. Leave for 10-15 minutes.  
  • Then using a cloth, remove any dirt or tarnishing. 
  • Rinse the tongue scraper in water. Polish up with a clean, soft, dry cloth. 

Method Two

Method Three

  • Squeeze a little bit of ketchup on a cloth, then sprinkle salt on top. 
  • Rub the mixture on your copper item in circular motions and repeat until the entire surface is tarnish-free. 
  • Rinse the tongue scraper in water and wipe with cloth. 
  • Then use another clean cloth to dry your item.

  • Hello every one my I want to use this medium to appreciate Dr obodubu monday a great spell caster for helping me retrieving back my relationship with my ex lover when he ended and turned back on me for quite a long time now (6 months ago) He performed a spell for me and within 48 hours after the spell had been cast I receive a text from my ex saying that he is sorry for the pains and tears that he had caused me and that he will not do such thing to me again in his life. I was surprised but later accepted him back again. Anyone that is in the same line of problem or different one that want to contact a spell caster should happily contact Dr obodubu monday now on this email or you can contact him through his whatsapp line +2349058774809
