How to clean tarnished Copper

Ketchup or lemon juice + salt are very good for cleaning up your tarnished copper jewelry, in case you like it all clean and shiny :-). After cleaning it and washing the ketchup or lemon juice off, polish it well with a handy-dandy sunshine polishing cloth...and its as good as new! :-)

And Tammy added in the comments: Worchestershire sauce or vinegar and salt work great too! Thank you Tammy!

Thanks for the tips Swati:) I don't think I've polished my copper over the years because I like the tarnished look with a bit of highlights. I also like the bright new look though, so now when I'm ready to polish a piece I'll know right where to look!
