I need help with cleaning copper food molds, please...

by Mim21938973
I have a number of copper molds that were hung on my kitchen's soffit. How do I now clean and remove the grime (and protective film) ? After cleaning, can I spray paint them with a copper metallic paint to prevent tarnishing?

    You can use plain white toothpaste to clean copper.

    I would use a dish soap like Dawn to cut the grease and clean well. Then I would use the product Tarnex on cotton balls and wipe the metal to remove tarnish. After the metal is all shiney again I would rinse the mold very well and dry with a soft cloth immediately after. I would NEVER spray the molds with ANY type of paint or clear varnish, especially if you ever plan to use them to mold gelatins or cakes etc.

    I have heard ketchup and baking soda mix - used it a couple of times and was surprised at good results.
