It is Easy to Clean Your Jewelry
In most cases, cleaning dulled or dirty jewelry does not mean you need to have it professionally serviced in order for your collection to shine. There are products that you can buy for cleaning stubborn jewelry, and those are available pretty much anywhere, but things like that are usually much cheaper online. However, when it comes to cleaning jewelry, they are usually not needed at all - you probably have "weaker" versions of nearly the same thing around your house. Use jewelry cleaning products when you have to clean old or worn jewelry.

  • 2. There are products that you can buy forcleaning stubborn jewelry, and those areavailable pretty much anywhere, but thingslike that are usually much cheaper online.
  • 3. Use jewelry cleaning products when you haveto clean old or worn jewelry.Still, if you find that the methods I show youhere are not able to clean up yourpieces, there will be a few suggestions at thebottom of each jewelry cleaning module.
  • 4. If the cleaning suggestions here dont restoreyour jewelry, these products will probably bejust enough extra oomph to save you theservicemans fee of cleaning your jewelry.
  • 5. How To Clean And Restore Silver Jewelry• The supplies you will need to clean light-to-medium tarnish from silver jewelry:• White toothpaste with baking soda• Toothbrush with soft (not firm nor medium) bristles• Lint-free cloth or soft high cotton t-shirt• Dish detergent - a very small amount, approximately 1/4 teaspoon• 1 cup measuring cup or 2 cup measuring glass, approximate size.
  • 6. First of all, youll only need the toothbrush and toothpaste some of the time.After youve done that to your very tarnished silver, rinse it clean and dont worry about drying it. Take your measuring cup and put some warm water in it.
  • 7. Drop your jewelry into this solution and use your finger to move it around a little.After the rinse, place your silver on to the cloth or old high-cotton t-shirtHere is product that can help keep the job done:
  • 8. Cleaning Gold Jewelry In A Few Steps• The supplies we need to clean gold jewelry are very similar:• Toothbrush with soft (not firm nor medium) bristles• Dish detergent - a very small amount, approximately 1/4 teaspoon• 1 cup measuring cup or 2 cup measuring glass, approximate size• Polishing cloth - these can be improvised, but the price is not bad either
  • 9. How To Clean Gold JewelryTo clean gold, drop it into a solution like the one we made to clean the silver jewelry and let it sit for a few minutes - 5 or 10 minutes should do. We let gold soak a bit longer than the silver because instead of relying on our cloth to clean the loosened tarnish away like we did with silver, this time we are relying on the dish-washing liquid to break down the oils of our skin that get into the top layers of our gold jewelry, allowing us to remove it with our toothbrush and a rinse.
  • 10. At about or around halfway through the soaking of your gold jewelry, especially when cleaning gold necklaces, reach in and grab the piece of jewelry you are cleaning and swish it around in the solution.
  • 11. After youve worked the surface of the piece, dip it a couple of more times in the solution and proceed to rinse it in cold running water, drying it much in the same way we dried the silver. Click Here For the product that I recommended
  • 12. Cleaning Platinum Jewelry In A Few Steps• The supplies you need to clean your platinum jewelry are as follows:• Ammonia - you will use a 50/50 mix for the solution• Dish detergent - a very small amount, about 1/4 teaspoon• 1 cup measuring cup or 2 cup measuring glass, approximate size• Soft (not firm or medium) bristle toothbrush• Polishing cloth - this is a necessity with platinum• Lint free cloth or high cotton old T-shit without a lot of lint
  • 13. How To Clean Platinum JewelryTo clean your platinum jewelry, mix a 50/50 solution of ammonia, detergent, and warm water. Dunk in your platinum jewelry to clean and this time leave it sit for about 20 minutes. As your platinum is soaking in the cleaning solution, you can do something else but dont forget to come back - you dont want it to sit for hours.
  • 14. Remove the platinum piece from the solution and use the toothbrush to clean it up. You can be a little more rough with it in the places that are hard to reach because platinum is a lot more versatile than other precious metals for jewelry, but when cleaning your platinum jewelry use the same amount of care as any other jewelry - dont rely on its strength.
  • 15. When cleaning platinum, it really can be an easy undertaking to use a professional or buy a commercial kit. As with the other two instructional modules on how to clean jewelry, I will point you below to some of the top products you can find on Amazon for cleaning platinum jewelry at home.
  • 16. Platinum tends to be very responsive to ultrasonic cleaning so if you have a large collection of any type of jewelry, it may be worth it to invest in a basin. Otherwise, the steps found here on how to clean your jewelry should suffice and I thank you for reading this and giving it a try for yourself. Click Here For Platinum Cleaner
  • 17. Best Practices In Keeping Jewelry Clean, Safe, And Looking New:• Keep your platinum separate from gold and silver, these can damage each other• When not wearing your jewelry, keep it in a lined box or hanging - use the "real-thing" when it comes to storing jewelry (jewelry boxes, hangars, safe)• Clean your jewelry regularly - the cleaner it is, the less time you spend cleaning it and the more time you spend wearing it.• Treat pieces with stones with extra care. Check before and after cleaning your jewelry for loosened stones and never put stones in ammonia unless you are sure they can take it. Diamonds are safe.• Visit www.JewelrySite.Us for All Jewelry Products.
