Clean your Jewelry at home tricks of the trade
Dish soap isn’t only for your dishes
Run to your kitchen and grab your dish soap right now because your jewelry needs cleaning. Mix a few drops of dish soap with warm water and dip a soft cloth in the solution to use for scrubbing your silver jewelry. Rinse under cold water, dab it with a dry cloth and watch your jewelry’s long lost glory restored.
Baking soda makes your cakes and your jewelry better
There’s a lot in your kitchen that you can use to clean intricate jewelry pieces, and baking soda is one of those things. For heavier tarnish, make a paste contain three parts baking soda and one part water. Use a soft cloth to scrub it. Don’t miss out on the crevices!
Save your pearly whites!
From giving you pearly white teeth to making your jewelry look brand new, your toothpaste can do it all. Use your white paste toothpaste to do away with mildly tarnished jewelry. Use a soft cloth with the toothpaste on it and gently rub your jewelry before rinsing it with warm water.
Ketchup makes everything better
Cleaning jewelry with ketchup is just as good as using ketchup with your fries. Smear some ketchup on your jewelry and rub it with your fingers. Add a little dish soap in water and use a cloth to wipe away the ketchup – quick and easy!
Tea Tree Oil as a substitute for cleaners
Using expensive, chemically harsh cleaners is such a hassle. Your go-to alternative is tea tree oil, and it won’t let you down! Soak your jewelry in a vinegar jar and add a few drops of tea tree oil. Swirl the solution and allow the jewelry to soak in it overnight.
