Take a look in your junk drawer and see if you have ketchup packets just sitting there. Instead of tearing them open for a bag of fries, use them to get your copper pots and silver jewelry tarnish-free. Squeeze ketchup all over the tarnished surface and let it sit for a few minutes. The high concentration of vinegar in ketchup -- called an acetic acid -- eats away at the tarnish. Buff with a damp towel and dry. It really does work!
