I know you're thinking this can't be true... spaghetti sauce only stains things right? That's what I thought too until the other night... I made some ravioli and warmed up some spaghetti sauce on the stove to go with it. After dinner when my husband was doing dishes (yes I did just say that, I know I am a lucky girl) he noticed this phenomenon!
He showed me the bottom of the pan where the sauce I splattered had actually made the copper on the pan look new again... he then told me to go blog about it...he knows me too well. So here I am!
Before sauce on the left, after on the right :)
Now, before you go trying this yourself, please test this on a part of the object you're not worried about... I don't need any emails saying I ruined people's pans!
Still with me? Great!
I used leftover sauce and a butter brush and slopped it on.
After covering the bottom of the 3 pans I used the brush to swirl it around on each of them again. Now keep in mind, I have a Finance degree and not a Chemistry degree so I have no idea why the more you swirl it around the quicker and more it removes, but it does. So swirl away!
I then let it sit for about 20 minutes and came back and swirled it some more. (Like all these technical terms I'm using?)
When I went to rinse it off I scrubbed with a brush and that REALLY took off the tarnish!
And there we go! 3 beautiful (old college) pots!
