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

I primarily use a scalpel and a binocular microscope.

my gear is:

clear plastic jewelry / bead containers

glass shot glasses and plastic water cooler cups

toothbrush with bristles cut down to less than half

pot for boiling

portable hot plate

dish soap

baking soda

distilled water

lemon juice for silver

and one special sauce for bronze

still fine tuning my photography or I'd post some before and after pics



and I use white vinegar to clean my containers
