Took an old pan and restored it to its original glory. I'm not much of a writer, the pictures show all the things necessary to restore a pan
Step 1: Wash the Pan
I didn't take a picture before this step, the pan was so black you couldn't tell it was copper coated. Anyways, soak the pan in vinegar/baking soda/Epsom salt/soap for a while. Do this outside, it smells. I did mine out on the porch and forgot about it for a couple days.
Step 2: Degreasing
Hit it with some degreaser and start scrubbing/sanding. Small circles work best
Step 3: Scrub/sand/scrub Some More
Step 5: Wire Brush and File the Handle
