Copper Rescue® uses pure antimicrobial copper, a germicidal to deactivate germs (microbes) on contact, meaning it must be kept clean and used properly to be the most effective. For cold sore treatment and fighting the cold and flu, use up to 4 times a day, if no results are seen after 3 days, discontinue use. For ongoing preventative purposes (when around sick people), use 1-2 times a day.

  • To reduce germs and sanitize hands, roll the antimicrobial Copper Rescue® between your hands and fingers for 1-2 minutes, or longer if desired. When there is friction, your skin picks up trace amounts of the pure copper ions, allowing for the germicidal process to be ongoing.
  • For the Common Cold and Sinus Drips, the Copper Rescue® is designed to combat germs incubating in the nose. For the best results, you should use a clean Copper Rescue® within the first 2 hours of feeling a cold coming on.
  • Care and Cleaning

    Copper is continually self sanitizing (EPA 2008). However, we do recommend that each person have their own personal Copper Rescue® in their health and wellness tool kit. It will be more effective if it is kept clean of oils and lotion by wiping it down with a clean dry cloth. (Oils and lotions will lessen the effect on germs and microbes). See the Science Page for a full explanation.

    Each Copper Rescue® comes with a case for storage and to slow tarnishing. If and when tarnish occurs: simply rub it off with a piece of fine, clean plain steel wool, and then wipe clean. Occasionally doing this will increase the effectiveness of the Copper Rescue® on germs.
