Copper pots, pans and other decor look wonderful but are notorious for tarnishing quickly. And sometimes that removal job can require a ton of elbow grease. ZThere are special cleaners you can purchase, but they are usually pretty pricey, if you can even find them. Fortunately there is a quick way to wash copper, even if it is a bit unusual!
First, pour some ketchup over the tarnish and rub gently to thoroughly cover the tarnish. Let sit for about five minutes, then rinse & wipe clean. The tarnish will be removed.
