Chester Copper Pot

First of all, Kudos to anyone who knows who the reference was to in the Title...


Getting to my Q. Because i am so adbsent minded lately, I put up a pot of water in one of my small copper pots to make some rice for my dog (yea, you read that correctly, i mix rice into my puppy's food).

Anyway, all the water boiled out (the whole cup and a half) and now the inside of my pot has these weird silerish lines all over it...

Anyone know what I need to do to remove this?

Thanks everyone!

C.

Thanks for the kudos - that's one of my favorite cheesey movies - lol!!!

As far as the lines, have you tried the traditional half-a-lemon & coarse salt?

And here I am thinking, "How cute! This person named their copper pot. I should do that," If I ever get that 7.75 qt Ruffoni covered brasier I've been drooling over for forever, I'm gonna name it Chester!
