A tip I wanted to share with you all is I have been using Cream of Tarter for cleaning occasionally. It is acidic and cleans well depending on the situation.
Usually to clean my copper bottom pots, it takes a lot more hard scrubbing and a brand new green scotch brite pad or a steel wool.
However if you make a paste with Cream of Tarter and water and let it sit for a few minutes, the job is much easier. Add in some baking soda if you need more abrasiveness or use a scrubby pad of your choice. If you let it sit for a few minutes, you will need a lot less "elbow grease".
All in all, this job went a good deal easier than usual. I know some use things like tomato sauce(or Ketchup) overnight, vinegar, and lemon juice are good cleaning acids for this job too. I am guessing Cream of Tarter isn't something a lot of people will think of using for a item to clean with.
So if you have a little Cream of Tarter, don't forget about it's potential cleaning power as well.
See the pictures of the process below.
To show the difference I applied some to half of the pot bottom and let it sit for a few minutes.
I went ahead and done both sides and got them wiped off. They are all finished and shining. Now if I can just keep my daughter from swiping them and taking them to the sandbox.....
