    Any good ideas for cleaning the exteriro of a small cooper wate tank that has water mineral residue without abrasive cleaners or harsh chemicals?

    Vinegar Will Work To Clean Copper , But If It Is Heavy Deposits It Might Take A Long Long Soaking.

    a vinegar and salt mix ,let it set a bit , then scrub if needed & rinse well ,,,,,,,,,vinegar & salt will set up oxidation of copper if not washed off & will pit if left to long
