Worcestershire Sauce for Copper


#1

Hi all-I was fascinated by the idea of using Worcestershire
Sauce to clean copper–so I tried it on the surface of a well
worn copper teakettle–and it worked Very well. I now have a
warm, shiny copper surface, a great smell, and I assume, a non
toxic kettle. Probably an expensive way to go, but I haven’t
yet compared costs! Sandra/ElegantBee

Hi, all - catsup works well on copper pots, too. I also use
lemon juice and salt. I use kosher salt because it’s a little
coarser. Martha Stewart sprinkles on the salt and then takes
half a lemon, rubbing it over the pan bottom - does the trick -
Martha has all the answers.

Or…try a half of a lemon dipped in salt…rub it all over the
copper…voila! …or any of a number of commercial polishes
that work as well or better…I do like the food solutions
though, they sound so homey.
