Rub the bottom with vinegar and salt.

Vinegar and salt...great idea. You might also try to cover the bottoms with ketchup. Let it sit for a couple of hours, then rinse. Mine come out beautiful!

Thanks for the responses so far. I cleaned the copper with the ketchup and vinegar/salt combination. That's how I got the blue color left behind. Any other ideas?
