Default Re: "Natural" way to polish copper

salt has a mohs hardness of about 2.5 and copper (penny) is 3.5 (granted the fact that the copper is so thin might make it weaker). so there is no way that salt can scratch copper

its good stuff, just like a lot of other polishes, if you need to get into cracks and crevices dont use it though use "Never Dull" comes in a blue can and its like cotton with polish on it, doesnt let the polish build up in the small places you cant get it out... but if your just cleaning a flat piece dont wast your money on it since it is more expensive.
