Maintenance of Raw Copper Pieces

If you don't like the brown film (tarnish) that's beginning to form on your raw copper pieces, no worries. You can clean them and make them good as new by rubbing toothpaste on them, or dipping them in a solution of vinegar and salt. They'll be shiny and good as new, but sometimes the tarnish gives the pieces a cool effect, it's not always a bad thing.
