Copper pots can be cleaned by dipping a lemon in salt and rubbing. If there are little bits that you can't get rid of that way, use a cleaning toothbrush and more lemon juice; the salt is mostly there for abrasion rather than its chemical properties anyway.

The handle is rusted and upon opening the box I discover that while the pot is in good shape there is the green of neglected copper inside the pot. Now I know this is poisonous to ingest so what would I have to have done to the pot in order to make it usable for cooking?
