5 Ways to Clean Jewellery at Home

I’ve always thought of accessories as the exclamation point of a woman’s outfit. - Michael Kors

We all know how important your jewellery is to you to complete your outfit. Some of the antique pieces of jewellery you have, like your wedding ring, bangles, earrings etc. almost become a part of your skin after sometime. Although it looks pretty and adds beauty to your already charismatic persona, wearing jewellery 24/7 can come with a few drawbacks. The major one being, it getting dirty and worn out with the everyday use making it lose its lustre which eventually makes it look dull and old. It hurts to watch your favorite jewellery become what it has become.

Well, the bad news is you cannot stop this from happening. But, the good news is that you can clean your jewellery from time to time and make it appear as new as ever, always. We jotted down a few tricks you can use to clean your jewelry and keep them evergreen. 

Baking Soda and Aluminum Foil

This one trick works like magic on your silver jewellery. Take a bowl and fill it with water. Now put some pieces of aluminium foil in it and soak your jewellery in this mixture. Leave the jewelry inside for a considerate amount of time and the jewellery shall gain back its silver shine. You’ll notice the water getting a little dirty. This is the dirt coming out of your jewellery because of ion exchange. Remember that there is no need to scrub your jewellery. Dry it with a soft towel once done, to remove the extra tarnish left on it.

Ketchup

Apparently ketchup does more than just making bland food delicious! IKR! Ketchup can be useful to bring shine to your silver and platinum jewellery and clean it well. Ketchup also works well on brass and copper and other materials. We suggest you not to use it on pure gold. Put some ketchup on your jewellery and wipe it with a wet towel and watch it shine in front of your eyes like magic.

Toothpaste

Anything that is not made up of silver or gold can be cleaned with toothpaste. It works wonders on pearls or any other white jewellery. Also keep in mind that the toothpaste you use should be normal vanilla white toothpaste. Nothing fancy with the gel or different coloured paste. Toothpaste can also be used on crystalline gemstones but should be avoided on softer gemstones as it may leave marks and scratches.

Put some toothpaste on the jewellery you want to clean and polish it with a cloth. Wipe it off after polishing. Remember to be cautious of the small cavities in your jewellery as toothpaste might get caught between them.

Ammonia, Dish Soap and Water

A mixture of ammonia, dish soap and water can be used to clean your diamonds, rubies, sapphires and other gemstones you own. This solution can be a little too concentrated to be used on metals like silver and gold but you can always use a diluted version of this solution to clean silver and gold by adding adequate amounts of water to your solution. Use a cotton swab to apply this solution to your jewellery so you don't leave any scratches and tears on the jewellery.

It's true what they say “Beer is for the good times.” Beer can help you bring back the lustre to your jewellery. Take a bowl, fill it up with beer and leave your jewellery inside it. Soak it for sometime and watch your silver and gold jewellery look as new as when you bought it.
