Don’t buy any Mule Mugs blindly. Let us help you with the Insights and details of how this amazing handmade work gets done:
When comparing your copper mug options, consider the following questions:
How we are different:
1) How much do they weigh? You can’t make a quality mug with cheap material (skimping on copper). Bless International mugs each weigh around .40 pound (170 grams) versus 120-140 grams for most of our competitors.
2) Are they 100% Copper? Many competitors use a lacquered copper for the interior. Our mugs are copper THROUGHOUT, including the handle, and no lacquer is used on the inside of the mug.
3) Are they handmade? Bless International mugs are made in Uttar Pradesh, an area of India known for its skilled copper artisans. Being handmade, no two mugs are identical. The artisans who make Bless International Moscow Mule Mugs achieve a level of detail that can’t be replicated with other manufacturing methods.
Care Instructions :
Tarnishing is a naturally occurring process that happens when copper reacts with outside elements, such as oxygen, moisture or human touch. Because these mugs are made of real copper and there is NO LACQUER on the inside of the mugs, they will tarnish without simple proper care.
The easiest way to prevent tarnish is to wash the mugs with soap and warm water after use (do not wash in dishwasher) and then immediately towel dry. Avoid leaving liquids in the mugs for extended periods of time.
If tarnish does begin to occur, it is very simple to remove. There are a number of copper cleaners available. Alternatively, it can be removed naturally using baking soda and lemon juice or salt and vinegar and scrubbing with a wet cloth.
