Tidy Tuesday

Cleaning pennies is the topic.
Before I start, I must tell you that I am talking about dirty, in circulation coins.
Don't clean coins that are part of a collection, or may be valuable.
You might decrease it's value.
To clean pennies, here's a simple recipe.
Use a shallow glass bowl , fill it halfway with water. Add 1/4 cup of vinegar. Add a teaspoon of salt, and stir until dissolved. Add 20 to 30 pennies . Every couple minutes, you can stir them. After 5 minutes, take them out.  Rinse and dry them.

I also read that coca cola can be used to clean pennies.

I had one that was very tarnished, and I used an eraser to clean it even more.
As you can see from my pictures... it works !
