Remove tarnish from copper and brass cookware. Squeeze ketchup onto a cloth and rub it on pots and pans. They should go back to their coppery color in minutes. Rinse with warm water and dry with a towel.

    I noticed, long ago, that ketchup would remove tarnish... I found it out by accident - by a drop landing on the bottom of a copper pan - but I never thought to do it on purpose!! thanks
