Restoring Rusty Penny


(2001)

How do you turn a rusty penny back into its normal color?

What grade are you in, Jessica, so we can answer appropriately?

Without that info, all I can say is: seeing as how U.S. pennies can't rust because there is no iron in them, what is the normal color of the pennies you are working with?

Soak the penny in some Taco Bell hot sauce, really, it works! Anyone try this, makes 'em look new.

Soak the pennies in lemon juice. My sister did it for a science project... I am pretty sure that's how she did it.
