Due to the healing properties of copper, the copper tongue cleaner is preferable to other materials. Also its design is wider at the looping area which helps in covering larger area in one stroke. The handles have firm grip with ample length to hold the scraper firmly. It has high fatigue strength which makes it long lasting. Copper gets tarnished with time but the core properties remain preserved for long. It is advised not to share your cleaner with others to maintain the hygiene. Always clean the scraper before and after use.
