Reviving an Old Copper Platter

Here’s a quick project, I picked from a yard sale I attended a few weeks ago. I was told this platter was copper. Well I was not quite sure, it almost looked brass. It was very tarnished. So I took to cleaning it up, I used Brasso, it did nothing.

So I decided to used vinegar and salt, I poured vinegar all over it then sprinkled salt all over it, then put on some plastic gloves and just pushed it all around I also used a dish scrubber and lightly worked on area’s that needed a little more scrubbing, just don’t scrub too hard it will scratch it. It took about 10 minutes to get all the tarnish off. Then I buffed it out and oiled it. It came out beautiful!
