The American Chemical Society released a video on Monday, showing a cheap way to save a spoiled bottle of wine.
It’s so cheap, it’s practically free.
The chemistry hack says to clean off a penny, drop it in the glass and stir. Remove the penny, then enjoy. The shinier the penny, the better.
According to Wine Spectator, the trick only works with certain pennies and in certain wines. Pennies made before 1982 contain more copper, which helps dissipate mercaptans that sometimes produce a skunky odor.
