Cleaning Copper

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.
