I was wondering what people on this forums use to clean their coins. Can you post pictures of the tools that you use and maybe give an explanation as to why you use that certain tool? I use distilled water, toothpicks, a tiny needle for a glucameter, a metal paper clip that has been flattened, and a toothbrush.

for all the coins, copper-silver-brass I use the following methods
1-in a glass of warm water, put 1 or 2 sodomite for 15 minutes and put the coins.
2-with dremel I clean the coin. wire brush and post plastic brush gently.
3-if needed I clean the corners with the pencil
4-difficult coins with iron rust make electrolysis 12v. in water and soda water pot
