Introduction: Cleaning Pennies
We all have pennies, and they are usually dirty. With this instructable, you can clean your pennies very easily using only a few steps.
Step 1: Gather Supplies
You will need:
1/4 cup vinegar
1 tsp salt
a non-metal bowl
a cup or bowl of water
Step 2: Create the Cleaning Solution
In a non-metal bowl, mix the salt and vinegar. Stir until the salt if completely dissolved.
Step 3: Clean the Pennies
Place about 5 pennies in the vinegar solution. Wait for 10-20 seconds, then remove the pennies and place them in water. This will remove any extra vinegar. If you don't do this, the pennies will start to turn a gross color of green.
