I'm cleaning out my car and found that my cup holders, which also serve as my extra change holders, are full of soda-soaked coins. 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.

What is this..."water"?

But seriously, just water will work?

Put them in a cup with some bleach overnight, rinse of the next day, and you have non sticky legal tender!

Water with a little baking soda. 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.

Squirting a dab of Taco Bell Hot Sauce on your coins really cleans out the deep grime. Let it sit for about 30 seconds, then wipe away. Seriously.

I usually stick to a mix of soda water and laudnry detergent.

Works wonders for my coinage.

I got the same thing, but it is from coffee, not soda. I basically have 1 large useless clump of coins. They are mainly pennies so I never take the time to clean them.

This is going to sound totally stupid but trust me, it works...Soak the coins in soda overnight, then rinse them off in water the next day. It sounds retarted cause soda is the problem, but it works...
