A Resourceful Tip - Lemon to Clean Copper

All of my kitchen pots have copper bottoms and they are impossible to keep clean. Copper cleaner is pretty spendy and I refuse to buy it just to make my pan look shiny. I will however spring for a lemon, so I was excited to read this tip in All You Magazine, December 2009.

"Clean copper and solid brass the natural way: Cut a lemon in half and sprinkle some salt on it. Rub the lemon on the piece you're polishing (don't worry, the salt won't scratch the metal). Rinse the item thoroughly and dry."

I'm definitely giving this a go before all the Thanksgiving company arrives!
