The Healing Properties of Water Stored in Copper During my childhood days I remember my mother storing water in a copper vessel and asking us to drink it after 7-8 hours, she would claim that water when stored in a copper vessel was extremely healthy for the mind and body.

Ayurvedic texts recommend drinking water stored in copper, because copper is believed to have anti-microbial, antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties. Its an essential mineral for our body and medical studies have proved the benefits of drinking water stored in copper jugs. According to a 2012 study, storing contamined water in copper pots for up to 16 hours at room temperature considerably reduced the presence of harmful microbes, so much that the researchers inferred that “copper holds promise as a point-of-use solution for microbial purification of drinking-water, especially in developing countries.” How will you benefit?

Before we begin, decide which walls you would like to "fabric". Do you want to cover the whole wall, or would you prefer to go up half a wall and apply a border trim? You may choose to create a collage of color and place a decorative frame around it, or use the fabric to create a wall mural. If being budget conscious is necessary for you, understand that fabric prices vary and could actually run into quite a bit of money depending on your tastes - this can be easily remedied by discount fabric stores and clearance sales.
