Cleaning Copper Pots and Pans

Tomato Catsup

To clean bronze and copper pots and pans, I use tomato catsup and salt. It cleans quickly with a little elbow grease. I usually spray a dab of "cooking spray" on after cleaning and it helps to keep them clean longer.

Lemons and Salt

To clean a copper pot, cut a lemon in half, sprinkle it with salt and wipe the tarnish away. This will last a month to six weeks. Makes keeping a shiny pot easy and beautiful!

Flour, Salt and White Vinegar

For forty years I have used the same homemade mix to clean my copper cooking utensil bottoms. It is an equal mix of flour, salt, and white vinegar. Mix to form a paste and put in a wide mouth jar. In the jar I keep a square cut from a sponge. When I need to clean, I open the jar and take the sponge out that is covered with the mix and wipe those pans. Voila, nice and shiny.

If you haven't any copper cleaner, you can clean copper bottomed pots and other kitchen utensils with toothpaste and a damp cloth.
