Green Tip: Use Kosher Salt (and Lemon) to Clean Copper

Thanks to Jonathan's tip, most of us now know that we can clean cast iron pots with kosher salt. Did you know that if you add half a lemon to that mix you can also clean and shine your copper pots?

Now, we don't own any copper pots -- but we just happened upon this little how-to over at Natural Home magazine, and we'll take their word for it.

All you need to do is dip the cut half of a lemon in a dish of kosher salt, get an 1/8 inch of crust on the lemon, then scrub away at your copper pots in a circular motion -- adding more salt as needed.
