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.
