Good Day to you all

Couple of questions regarding cleaning of MD coins.

I have heard that some people use peroxide (heating it up) soaking the coins
then cleaning with a tooth pic, or ear cotton swab. I have also heard that you need
to use distilled water after soaking HP.

Was wondering what all of your thoughts are on this?

Do you use this technique or a similar one?

Or have you found a better one?

thanks PapaStove

I only put copper coins in heated peroxide. Once they quit bubbling, remove, rinse and brush with toothbrush to remove loosened crud. Then rub with olive oil to preserve. I have many from years ago that still look good doing this.
