This is the best tip if you have copper pans. I use it clean my copper clad pans (stainless steel with copper on the bottom), copper teapots, etc.
You squeeze on a generous amount of ketchup and coat copper using a papertowel or napkin. Leave on 1 - 2 hours, the longer the better. Then rinse off. They look brand spanking new. You won't believe your eyes.

Actually you will see the copper changing right before your eyes, you really don't have to leave it on 15-minutes to see these great results. But as long as you don't need them right away, why not lay them all out on the counter? The longer the better!
