Now, I'd like to use that money someday so does anyone know of a good way to clean those coins? I'd like to just soak them all in something if I can. It's not worth rubbing each coin with alcohol or something. Promote this thread!

Put the coins in shake it up. Let it sit. Maybe give it a shake when you walk past it. Should be good to go in a day or so.

I basically have 1 large useless clump of coins. They are mainly pennies so I never take the time to clean them.
