Hello all,

     I completed the copper plating on my Constitution a while back and put her aside to complete my Longboat.  I finished the longboat and getting back into Connie.  The problem is, I laid the copper plating on a towel and the plates have accumulated a lot of lint and dust.  What would be the best way to clean the copper plating?  Keep in mind I did individual plates with a small lap and the lint is clinging to those corners.

Would a vacuum cleaner on low power be helpful? Even a dust buster maby?

I will try a lint roller.  I am afraid to touch a vacuum nozzle to the plating.

Double sided tape did the trick.  Thanks for the suggestions.
