What exactly are you meaning by "clean" the gutters? Are you referring to cleaning the gunk out of them or do you mean to remove the patina?

They are 60 years old and the hope is to renew the finish to its original luster knowing that they will tarnish over time. Thank you

I have used muratic acid for cleaning small sections before resoldering but I can't imagine getting ambitious enough to clean the entire surface.

I think copper gutters are beautiful with a nice patina
