If you are saving them for collecting, don't clean them. It will decrease the value! (09/17/2009)

This may sound crazy, but soak them overnight in Coke. There is something in its makeup that works great. They will come out looking like new! I have also used it (and also tomato sauce) for my copper bottom Revere Ware pans.
I don't know if any other soda works. (04/09/2010)
