    I agree, After seeing videos and learning, there is concern about scratching the coin rubbing the dirt off of it so a container was used to spray on the coin to prevent that scratching, and maintaining the value. The sticker said FOO-FOO juice. I was wonder if it was a cleaning mixture, like Dawn detergent, Lemon, and water. and was it on the market, or was it just plain water.

    Most of the posst here, are showing the humor of detectorists, which put a smile on my face.

    Its just water. Sorry for nercoing this thread but was was wondering what it was as well lol.


    "Rubbing the dirt off of silver coins can leave scratches and greatly decrease its value and appearance. I used to take my silver coins home dirty and run them under water. When i started The Hoover Boys Metal Detecting YouTube Channel i wanted a solution to clean my silver coins in the field. This way i could reveal the coins details, date, and mint mark on site. So i would carry a small spray bottle of water with me. One day I called it Foo-Foo Juice and the name just stuck. To be funny i slapped a Foo-Foo sticker on my bottle. Foo-Foo Juice was born. Fill with your choice of cleaning liquid. We use water. "

    It's an "old-timers" term meaning perfume or cologne. I first heard the term from my Dad.....and he was from the "greatest generation."

    A stray bottle with water to spray you new found silver. Sold by the Hoover Boys who coined the term.

    Problem is most people don't get that water makes some finds worse and not better.... but I guess there's a price to pay to be cool like the Hoover Boys. My absolute two biggest pet peeves watching videos is spraying the finds, and calling out the number reading on the detector. Who cares if you have a 12-24... what's the difference, just dig the damn hole!

    Instead of rubbing the dirt off of a coin that might be very valuable, and risk scratching it, they use water to soak the dirt off of the coin. I had never heard of it, til I started watching the Hoover boys on Youtube.

    Doesn't every one take water to drink? Or am I just one of those hydrated freaks.

    When I'm out in the field, I'm looking for the next target to dig up. I'm not wasting time half assed cleaning a coin that I'll need to actually do a good job cleaning once I'm home.

    Made up gimmick to sell videos and make one looks professional. But a good idea as long as water doesnt hurt a newly dug coin. Letting a old coin dry out after digging seems to ruin it for me. I just try to keep them in a ziplock and place them in a cool dry place. But yes its a new term that can be added to the metal detectors terminology list.

    In New Zealand we have Foo Foo Valves. They burst under pressure. Especially when confronted by an idiot.

    I'm NEW, what is foo-foo juice?
    A term, that no self-respecting metal detectorists, would ever use!

    Come to think of it, the neighbors cat did have a foo-foo blanket once.....
    funniest thing, watching that cat drag that blanket around, taking funny steps......

    Yesterday is history, tomorow a mystery. All we have is the here and now, it's a special gift. That's why we call it "The Present"

    Pity the poor agnostic dyslexic insomniac who lies awake at night wondering if there really is a Dog.
