Copper Restoration


I have recently purchased an old copper wash kettle at an estate sale. I am having a problem polishing and restoring the finish. All I want to do is clean this item up a little, what should I be using?

Don't touch that patina, it is the most valuable part of the pot. Just wipe it with a cotton cloth and give it lots of love.

I recently purchased a copper farm sink at a discount because it has been in saltwater resulting in a slight haze. Is there a way to remove this whiteish haze safely?
