Scythe Ninja Cu Revitalization

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My copper Scythe Ninja performs so well but after the years it has lost it's tarnish... so I put together a little concoction of lemon juice, salt, and baking soda! Look at the finish now!

Copper is so difficult to clean and get stains off, so that's why I let it get so dishevelled... Over the years I tried many recommended solutions, even ketchup! Ketchup worked but man did it leave residue - I mean even after a year I noticed some left over ketchup. YUK! Anyway, I came across another recommended solution calling for lemon juice, salt, and just a pinch of baking soda.

I applied the solution with a Q-tip. After a few seconds you'll see the copper begin to clear up and shine again through the liquid application, but the shine will fade as the solution begins to dry. That's okay - the shine is still there. What happened is the solution dislodged all the grime and suspended it in the liquid. I noticed that the first application of the solution was really sticky and gooey to rub off with a dry Q-tip. But the more I applied clean solution the more the grime got diluted and the easier it became to rub off the dried solution with a dry clean Q-tip.

Well, I hope this helps anyone with a pure copper heatsink! Peace smile.gif
