Just paint on HD Gel and let it work. Scrub stubborn tarnish with synthetic steel wool.
Wipe gel off then rinse with water.
One pint will clean about 15-20 square feet. Also available in Half Gallon Containers.

HD Gel is an acid based cleaner that needs to be neutralized before coating with Everbrite Coating.
This can be done by washing the copper with EZ-Prep Neutralizer or baking soda and water.

Polish alone will not clean these copper deck caps.

Tarnished Copper Cap that polish will not clean

Apply the HD Copper Cleaning Gel with a brush to the thickness of a thick paint. If thinner Gel is desired, a small amount of water can be mixed in. Be careful not to mix in too much water so the Gel doesn't drip.

Apply Copper Cleaning Gel with a Brush

Let the gel work. Be patient. The gel is not extremely aggressive but is highly effective with time. After about 30-60 minutes, test with the enclosed scrubber to see if the tarnish is "melted" and ready to remove. The cooler the temperature, the longer the gel will take to work. If the gel starts to dry, it can be refreshed by agitating with a brush that is wet with water.
Note test in bottom corner of picture below.

Copper Tarnish being removed with HD Copper Cleaning Gel

After the tarnish is "melted", remove the gel with paper towels.
Any remaining tarnish can be removed by scrubbing with a synthetic steel wool pad (with the grain of the copper). If necessary, stubborn stains can be sanded off with fine sand paper or a sanding block.

Remove the tarnish remover and the tarnish

Polishing the copper with MAAS polish will shine the copper but is optional. *Polishing is NOT recommended for rough or old copper like on an older copper roof.
If you have a copper roof or do not want a polished surface, polishing can be skipped.
Polishing copper roofs is not recommended because the copper is rough and the polish discolors the metal.

Neutralize the copper

The Gel is a mild acid and MUST be neutralized with EZ-Prep neutralizer or baking soda and water.
Rinse with plain water. Dry to prevent water spotting.

Polish with Maas Polish to shine copper

Wash off the copper polish with a drop of mild soap or EZ-Prep Neutralizer and water. Rinse with plain water and dry.

Wash off Polish Residue

Before and After Cleaning - Not Coated Yet

After the copper is cleaned and neutralized, wipe with solvent
(Xylene or denatured alcohol solvents are available at hardware stores - sorry we cannot ship the solvent for the final wipe)
to remove any residue. This will ensure a completely clean surface so the coating will adhere properly.

Wipe cleaned, neutralized copper with solvent to remove residue.

Apply Everbrite Clear Protective Coating to protect the copper from tarnish and oxidation.
Two coats are highly recommended. The picture below shows the before and after deck caps.
The caps on the right have been sealed and protected with Everbrite.

ENJOY the beauty of your restored copper.
