Haven't you heard of 'laundering money'?

An Ultrasonic cleaner is best but few homes have one.
Put the money into hot water and washing up liquid (detergent) to remove grease and general grime.
Put the money into vinegar, the weak acid will clean off the oxidization to give as new look.

There is a domestic liquid cleaner that is advertised and the advert shows a copper coin being cleaned.

When I take coins from "mucky" places - the floor of my car when the kids were young, something that got wet and shouldn't have, etc. I put them in the closed section of the utensil area of my dishwasher. Just leave them there when the dishwasher is running, and use them afterward. No dishwasher, just let them soak in a bucket with detergent, then rinse them in a colander (strainer).

If you are planning to use these in a coin collection, I suggest a different approach. For coin collections, use just water and a mild detergent. Acids, bases, and metal cleaners can adversely affect the value of coins for collections.
