CLEANING BATH FOR COPPER COINS
This cleaning bath removes oxidation from tarnished copper coins. It is not suitable for antique coins with uniformed coloring, as it will result in patina damage. It may not be used to clean coins made from mixed metals (e.g. 1 euro, 2 euros) or cupronickel coins (e.g. 1 DM). This bath should only be used to clean coins, which are oxidized or
tarnished. Cleaning coins, which are just dirty but not tarnished, is not recommended. The bath can be used to clean a number of coins at once; however, care should be taken to only clean coins of the same material / alloy together. Make sure that the coins do not touch each other. To clean different alloy types, carefully pour out some of the bath into a non-metallic container and clean each type separately. It is not
suitable for silver and gold coins; these should be cleaned using another metal-specific bath. This cleaning bath will give a matt finish and will not polish to a deep shine. Place the coins into the basket and lower into the bath. The heavier the
tarnishing, the longer they will need to be in the bath; in most cases, 3 to 5 minutes should be sufficient. For extreme tarnishing (e.g. on coins which have been buried), coins can be left for up to 20 minutes, however this requires constant supervision and the coins should be removed as soon as the oxidation has been removed. Hard deposits can be gently occurs wash immediately with plenty of clean water.
The bath contains acids, which may attack stainless steel (i.e. sinks) and other acid-sensitive surfaces; please take care when using it. Caution irritant! Keep away from eyes, skin, and mucous membranes.
