When I saw this idea on Pinterest, I really wasn't sure why anyone would care if their pots were tarnished or not. I'm no Martha Stewart, so I really can't imagine why anyone would want to spend time cleaning copper pots. I figure pots work just as well if they're tarnished or not.
However, if you really feel the need to clean your pots, or can't sleep at night, or have severely expired ketchup like I did in your fridge, then you can try this. It works.

Start with a really tarnished copper pot.
Put ketchup on it. It starts working as soon as the ketchup touches the pan. You can rub it lightly with a sponge.
Wipe off the ketchup and rinse the pan.
That's it! Your pans will be shiny in ten minute or less.
