If you run out of copper cleanser, just use leftover hotsauce. Frank's works great, but so does Taco Bell's Fire sauce. Watch the tarnish disappear like magic!

Worcestershire sauce is also a great copper cleaner. I've been using in for years. Sprinkle on and rub all over, rinse and rub dry. Plain vinegar will also work well. (02/09/2006)
Even less expensive: rinse item with hot water. Sprinkle liberally with salt. Sprinkle with white vinegar. Cover entire area. Instant clean. Rinse, dry thoroughly. (02/10/2006)
Ketchup works too on just about any pan bottom. Must be the acid in it. (02/10/2006)
I have used an equal mixture of salt, white vinegar and flour for 41 years on my same copper pans. ie: 1/3 cup of each of the above mixed together to form a paste. Then use a sponge piece to cleanse and leave it in the container when you are through. (02/10/2006)
