A homemade cleaner is something that you can make using a few items found in your kitchen. If you do not have one or more of the ingredients needed for a homemade cleaner, then all you can find every item right at your local grocery store. The basic ingredients you need to clean any type of copper pan includes both vinegar and salt.

You will be surprised by how well a basic homemade process will work to clean the tarnish from any type of copper or copper bottomed pan. This method can also be used to clean tarnish from other items in your home that are made of copper. All you need to do is make sure you have the ingredients.

Cleaning a copper pan can be done at anytime to restore it to like-new condition. This method will also allow you to clean old copper items that have been purchased at a thrift shop or a garage sale.
