Schoon, which means “clean” in Dutch, is a 100% copper water bowl for dogs. Our 100% copper bowl has natural anti-bacterial properties that help keep your fur child’s water as clean and fresh as possible to prevent life-threatening conditions, diseases, and dental problems.
Size: 18cm x 6.5cm x 4.5cm
Material: 100% pure copper
Important: Use Schoon for water ONLY and not for food.
Pure copper is the most effective at attacking and destroying the bacteria, viruses and fungi found in pet bowls. However, pure copper bowls lack a resin or lacquer top coat. Without this protective top later, pure copper bowls can only be used as water bowls for your pets. This is because copper can react with acidic substances, like those found in dry or canned pet food. Chemical reactions between pure copper and acidic substances can be dangerous, making the pet food unsafe for animals. Thus, bowls with a pure copper surface must only be used for drinking water.
Q) How to wash Schoon Copper Bowl?
To hand wash your bowl, use hot water, a gentle soap and soft sponge. Do not use harsh detergents, rough sponges or scrub the bowl too hard as doing so may damage the bowl.
Q) What do I do if the bowl tarnishes?
You should also polish your copper bowl once a month or when you find that it has tarnished. To do this, create a mixture of 3-4 tablespoons of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of baking soda or salt. With the mixture, rub the bowl and then remove with a clean cloth. If you do not have lemon juice, apple cider or white vinegar may be used.
If the bowl tarnishes to the point of verdigris, it should be replaced.
