• Gently guide the Copper Rescue® tip into the nostril as shown. DO NOT insert at an upward angle, but straight back into the lower nasal cavity (this is the prime incubation spot for respiratory viruses). Slowly rotate the tip; do this for 1 minute.
  • Wipe clean, and repeat this germ eliminating process, swabbing the other nostril. (At no point should this hurt) Wipe clean, and return to the case.

  • For Cold Sore treatment, rub the antimicrobial Copper Rescue® over the tingling area (premature cold sore) for 2-4 minutes (depending on results).
  • The previous technique can also have amazing results on Small Cuts and Minor Acne. With persistence, even hand and finger Warts can be susceptible to the Copper Rescue®.

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.
