I been digging alot of blackened clad lately and have been struggling to get them clean. i built a tumbler out of an old canon printer, tried many different mixtures of items and chemicals to clean them. i bought household cleaners copper cleaners ketchup vinegar salt etc etc. still came out blackened. Then tonighti rigged up the phone charger salt water thing. Boy Howdy ! the first quarter i did came out perfect like i just got it in change from mcdonalds. A half doller i had that was black came out a little copper colored but otherwise perfect. i definitely recommened everyone tries this. takes about 5 minutes and it is clean and shiny.

Please DO NOT use salt. It generates toxic gases. Use baking soda, it's safer.
Also, do not use this method on older coins. They will be ruined (numismatically).
Generally, electrolysis is only for iron.
