Home Improvement--General/Copper Kitchen Range


Scratched Copper Hood
Scratched Copper Hood  

We had a mishap while cleaning our copper range and now part of it is scratched/discolored. Is there a way to hide/repair/fix the damage? It was caused by a Scotch Brite sponge and I believe shite vinegar.


Sorry, this outside my area of expertise.  I would suggest you search for a company that manufactures copper range hoods and other decorative copper pieces for kitchen design elements.  They would, particularly, those who do range hoods which require constant cleaning, know how to care for them and should be able to suggest corrective procedures as well as future effective cleaning procedures.  Good luck.
