What is something household I could use to remove rust from copper? A copper necklace I've had for awhile is rusting, and I'd like to keep it. I know Coca-Cola can remove rust; would other pops work?

Corrosive Acid.

I know, the name sounds unappealing, but bear with me. Rub it on the copper, and let it sit overnight.

Problem solved.

You want to strap a bunch of used mattresses to the walls?

Why not just roll around naked in medical waste while you're at it?

Copper oxidizes, usually it turns green, you can use rubbing achole to get it off, or find some Coke Classic and let it sit in that for a while.

That's what it's doing, turning green; I always thought that was coppers form of rusting. Anyways, I'll have to look for rubbing alcohol, I'm pretty sure there's some around; if not, anything else that would work? We don't have any Coke around, although we have other pops (sodas, for those of you who use that word instead).

Edit: Nevermind, found rubbing alcohol; thanks for the help!

I think it's the acetic acid in coke that does it, so yeah, any brown-colored soda would work

Chemistry Class actually did help

Wisconsin; it seems like a lot of the northern US does. It's all pretty much based on location.
