Cleaning Jewelry (Psst! there is a freebie in here!!)

I frequently get asked what the best way to keep jewelry clean. The absolute best way to do it is to use a jewelry cloth treated with cleaning solution and rub!  The trick is not to rub hard, but to rub a lot. People sometimes make the mistake of pulling their chains through the cloth too hard and BOOM! The chain breaks! You really just need a firm but gentle pressure...not too hard. 
If you don't have a Jewelry Cleaning cloth, you can just use a clean piece of cotton cloth to rub, however for really tarnished jewelry, I would recommend the Jewelry Cleaning cloth.

To see a demo on the correct way to clean your jewelry, check out our brief JEWELRY CLEANING TUTORIAL on YouTube!

For intricate rings, I stumbled across this GREAT DIY method of getting them clean.

You will need:

Small bowl
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 teaspoon dish detergent
1 cup hot water
Aluminum foil
Paper towel
Old toothbrush

Gather what you need for making the jewelry cleaner. You can use your favorite dish detergent — or make your own — to add a serious grease-busting aspect to this concoction. The salt, baking soda, and aluminum foil create a chemical exchange called an ion transfer, which naturally cleans metals.

Line the bowl with a square of aluminum foil, and then top with the salt, baking soda, and dish detergent. Now add the hot water and watch as the liquid fizzes. Drop in your jewelry and let sit in the cleaner for 10 minutes.

Remove your jewelry and use the toothbrush to gently scrub around any prongs, groves in the jewelry, or gemstones. We tested this cleaner on gold, silver, sterling, diamonds, and other gems with glittering results. Rinse after cleaning, and pat dry.

You'll love how your jewelry sparkles after the quick cleaning, which is safe to do over and over.
