Here are some tips to clean your jewelry with what you already have in your home:
- It's important to remember to be gentle with your pieces especially when cleaning them at home.
- Baking Soda! Mix equal parts baking soda and warm water and place silver jewelry in the mixture inside a bowl lined with foil for 20-30 minutes. Pieces will come out shinier than before! You may have to do some light scrubbing with the mixture and a cloth to get into smaller areas on the jewelry.
- Dish Soap can be used to clean silver or gold jewelry. Place the jewelry in warm water with a few drops of dish soap and use a cloth to lightly wipe each piece.
- Seltzer water or Alka Seltzer works well for gemstones and diamonds. Place the jewelry in a cup with it for 5-10 minutes.
