Step 1: Stuff You Need
The things you need :
- a few copper coins
- a cup
- a tweezer
- a measuring cup
Step 2: Measure
You'll need 5 cc/ml salt and 15 cc/ml vinegar
Step 3: Mixing
First put everything together in the cup and then mix everything very good
Step 4: Coins and Waiting
Throw the coins in the cup and wait for 2 hours
Step 5: Finishing
Now the last step you need to take the coins out of the cup with the tweezer and now we have shiny shiny copper
Step 6: Why?
When salt and vinegar are mixed together, you get hydrochloric acid. This acid is often used to metal objects to clean. The coin is made of copper. After a bath in the copper salt-vinegar solution is clean again.
