I always heard that tomato sauce or ketchup would clean copper, but I needed to try it for myself. My poor pots are over 8 years old and I obviously haven't taken great care of them. I have so many baked on stains, it's not funny.
Well, I smeared ketchup all over the bottom of the copper skillet and let it sit there for about ten minutes. I could tell an immediate change.
The copper looked fresh and newer than before. I think I like this trick! Now, I just need to do the rest of my pots and pans. Plus, I need to find a good way to clean the years of burned stains off the bottoms.
