    There are lots of homemade remedies, but I use Wright's Copper Cream. It seems to do a better job, quicker, than any homemade recipe I've ever tried. Things don't seem to tarnish as quickly either.

    Ketchup. Slather it on and let it sit for a while. Wipe off and rinse. Repeat if necessary.

    Is been a long time since I've had any, but I gently rubbed baking soda paste (just add a little water), then rinsed. Otherwise, they sell copper cleaner @ Walmart, I think.

    Use a sos pad, and this is great. When ever you use a copper pan, do this, then it won't be such a bug task when you clean it occasionally, ok? J.

      I would stay away from any type of metal sponge unless you don't mind scratches. . If you go to Wal-Mart, you can buy a product called Barkeepers Friend. It comes in a gold can similar to Ajax for about $2. It's a powder...you want to take and dampen a soft rag and sprinkle the powder on it and rub it until it becomes a paste. Then rub it in a circular motion on your copper and then let it dry to haze for about 5 minutes. Next, take a clean soft dry towel and wipe/buff it off. Best product I've ever used to clean copper!
