You don’t need fancy jewellery cleaner to get your silver to sparkle, your gold to gleam, and your gemstones to shine.
For Products to use:
Brighten Gold and Silver Trinkets
Brighten up your gold and silver trinkets by soaking them for 10 minutes in a solution of 1/2 cup clear ammonia mixed in 1 cup warm water. Gently wipe clean with a soft cloth and let dry. Please Note: Do not do this with jewellery containing pearls, because it could dull or damage their delicate surface.
Removing Built-up Tarnish
To remove built-up tarnish from your silver, make a thick paste with 1/4 cup Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate and 2 tablespoons water. Apply with a damp sponge and gently rub, rinse, and buff dry. To polish gold jewellery, cover with a light coating of Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate, pour a bit of Acetic Acid over it, and rinse clean. Note: Do not use this technique with jewellery containing pearls or gem-stones, as it could damage their finish or loosen any glue. To see other Baking Soda Uses – Click Here.
Make Silverware Shine
Make your silverware—as well as your pure silver bracelets, rings, and other jewellery—shine like new by soaking them in a mixture of 1/2 cup Acetic Acid and 2 tablespoons Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate for two to three hours. Rinse them under cold water and dry thoroughly with a soft cloth. To see other Acetic Acid Uses – Click Here.
To Spruce up jewellery with all metal or crystalline gemstones
Use Isopropanol 70% Blend to spruce up jewellery that is all metal or has crystalline gemstones, such as diamonds or rubies. Spray on the Isopropanol using a Bottle and Pump Spray Attachment, then use an old toothbrush for cleaning. But don’t do this if the piece has opaque stones such as opal or turquoise or organic gems such as coral or pearl. The ammonia and detergents in the cleaner can discolour these porous lovelies.
