I was lucky enough to have some great copper pots passed down to me from my mom when she got a new set. I sometimes end up washing them in the dishwasher and they quickly tarnish. It wasn't really a recent discovery but now that I have this blog, I thought it would be nice to share this super easy homemade way to brighten your copper pots when they tarnish.
- Wash and dry the pot with warm soapy water
- Heat a 1/2 cup-1 cup of tomato sauce, soup or ketchup until hot (May even work at room temp)
- Take a dry cloth or paper towel and carefully rub chosen tomato product all over the the copper
- Let dry
- Rinse and dry again with warm soapy water.
- Repeat if necessary
