Information on cleaning a penny for science
Hi my friend and I are doing and I are doing a science project for school and we would like to know what cleans a penny the best and why? can you send us information about pennies and the history behind them
Also can you send us peoples names and email addresses who know a lot about pennies/copper, places in the new York area where we can go to find out about pennies, and a web site we can go to about pennies and copper we tried using many household substances and we found that ketchup and Zud [adv: Zud on eBay or Amazon] w/ water cleaned a penny the best can you tell us why this may have happened and why these items cleaned it better than vinegar [in bulk on eBay or Amazon affil links]\salt\water. I know because I already tried it.Melinda J [last name deleted for privacy by Editor]

I did this project for my science project and I experimented with Coke, Diet Coke and Lemons Diet Coke and the coke works better because of the sugar and the acids it has!
thanks byeAlfredo S [last name deleted for privacy by Editor]
