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:

Dirty pennies

1/4 cup vinegar

1 tsp salt

a non-metal bowl

napkins/paper towels

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.
