Fun Fact About Copper: A Must-Know for Everyone!

Did you know that copper is naturally antibacterial? This means that copper surfaces can help to reduce the spread of bacteria and germs. Copper has a long history of being used to prevent the spread of disease, and it is still used today in a variety of products, such as doorknobs, countertops, and hospital surfaces.

How does copper work its antibacterial magic? Copper ions can interact with the cell walls of bacteria and damage them, ultimately leading to the bacteria's demise. Copper also releases reactive oxygen species, which can further harm and kill bacteria.

Not only is copper a safe and effective way to reduce the spread of bacteria, but it is also durable and easy to clean. If you are looking for a way to improve the hygiene of your home or business, consider using copper products.
