Homemade Copper Polish & Cleaner Recipe

by Nellie
(Georgia)

Nellie shared this homemade copper polish and cleaner recipe with me, which is also all natural.

Nellie says:

When I had my kitchen cabinets painted I saw that the hardware was extremely tarnished copper.


I searched online for a solution and found they suggested baking soda and lemon juice.

So I squeezed lemons and made a paste with the baking soda and rubbed the mixture on the copper hardware.

Some of the tarnish came off easy, while some of it needed to sit a bit first, but it all got cleaned up!

Natural Recipe To Clean Copper & Silver Fantastically

by SR101 Reader

SR101 Reader says:

Use a clean cloth, and then mix baking soda and hydrogen peroxide with it to clean copper or silver.

Make sure you wear gloves or your nails will get stain.

Then you must also clean your nails with the same ingredients that you used to clean the copper or silver.

It works great.

Taylor says:

Thanks so much for this recipe. I have not personally tried it, so I would love to hear from others who have to share how it worked for them.
