I never unroll it. As some of the pieces/rolls start to darken in
color I will soak them in a hot water / citric acid solution. This
brings them back looking new. Some say it is not necessary and some
even say that clean shiny copper will cause problems such as blue
spirit. Never had a problem(yet).
