Copper is required as a catalyst to remove sulphur odours during distillation. These are essential for high alcohol washes, typically over 16% ABV.
To wash your saddles: Remove them from the column and soak them in vinegar. Once finished give them a thorough rinse 3 or 4 times before putting them back in the condenser.
