Place a small amount of liquid in a shallow plastic or glass cup.
Put coin into liquid and allow to soak for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
Use a cotton swab to tilt coin upward and remove from cup.
Place coin on a soft, clean cotton cloth, paper towel, or napkin.
Soak a cotton swab with liquid and gently swirl about the coin’s surface and rim in order to remove debris, etc.
Turn the coin over and use a new soaked swab on the reverse side of the coin.
If the coin is extremely dirty, repeat the process. Several swabs may be needed on a single coin.
When finished, place coin on a soft, clean cotton cloth, paper towel, or napkin and gently “blot” dry. Allow to neutralize in air for 15-30 minutes.
* Use common sense when applying with a swab. If rubbed harshly, “hairlines”, etc. can be created. This product will not abrade nor change the surface of a coin, but may not be able to remove some hardened materials accumulated on coin surfaces over time.
** Due to the natural reactive nature of copper/bronze, you may wish to experiment before use with copper. Different surfaces and residues already on the copper can react with solvents and change the patina of the copper. We have never seen any changes occur with gold, silver, platinum, palladium, nickel, aluminum, steel, or zinc. Do not use on leather, suede, silk, or rubber.
