CLR Mishap On Copper Farmsink, Please Advise



(-----) January 6, 2008

I am not a chemical engineer and I think I have ruined my copper potting sink. CLR was used in it, and has left some wild staining. I am in the process of remodeling my kitchen which abuts the bathroom with this very cool, old potting sink. I just really want to know if I have ruined it for good, or by some small miracle, its original finish can be brought back. Thanks for any help you can give.

It's probably just stained, and can be reconditioned with a metal polish intended for copper and a lot of elbow grease.
