We all love them. Their brilliance, sparkle and how it can transform a boring outfit into something special.. We enjoy the beauty of jewellery so what a disappointment when we experience of losing a sparkle of our favourite piece of jewellery! What to do in such a moment?
Here you can find a few ideas on how you can clean and brighten your jewellery at home. It is simple what to do and how to use common household products to clean jewellery at home.
(Note that methods using chemical or other aggressive and abrasive cleaners are not suitable for soft stones such as opals and pearls. Use only soap and water.)
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but not when they are dirty! Soak your diamonds in club soda to give them a bright sheen.Simply place them in a glass full of club soda and let them soak overnight
Jewellery cleaning could not be easier than with the help of white vinegar. Simply insert the jewellery in a glass of vinegar and leave for 10-15 minutes, stir occasionally.
Alka Seltzer that can soothe the stomach can also clean up and jewellery. Baking soda is a great solution if you mix it with warm water, then dip your jewellery in it. Leave it for about two minutes in the mixture, then remove and rinse.
Use aluminium foil to clean the blackening silver jewellery. Take a piece of crumpled aluminium foil and put it on the jewellery (on the foil). Sprinkle a layer of baking soda on the jewellery, then pour boiling hot water. Dirt and tarnish will be transferred from jewellery to the foil. You may need to rotate or move the jewellery so that it will come into contact with the foil from all sides. Finally, remove it and rinse with water.
For soft and porous materials such as pearls and turquoise, you only need soap and water to clean. Place the jewellery in a solution of 2 cups of warm water and a few drops of mild detergent. Wipe each pearl with a soft, dry cotton cloth and allow to dry. (Pearls are actually polishing by itself when you wear them frequently) Turquoise cleaning doesn’t even need soap. Simply soak a toothbrush with soft bristles in warm water and rub stone. Clean with a clean cloth, then leave to dry, best on fresh air.
