5 DIY Ways To Clean Jewelry

Looking to make your jewelry return to its former beauty and shimmer? Here are some do-it-yourself ways to clean and take care of your jewelry:



  1. Use a mild soap and water: Mix a few drops of mild dish soap with warm water in a bowl. Soak your jewelry in the solution for a few minutes, then use a soft-bristled brush to gently clean any dirt or grime. Rinse your jewelry under running water and pat dry with a soft cloth.

  2. Use baking soda and water: Mix equal parts baking soda and water to create a paste. Apply the paste to your jewelry and use a soft-bristled brush to gently scrub away any dirt or tarnish. Rinse your jewelry under running water and pat dry with a soft cloth.



3. Use vinegar and water: Mix equal parts white vinegar and water in a bowl. Soak your jewelry in the solution for a few minutes, then use a soft-bristled brush to gently clean any dirt or grime. Rinse your jewelry under running water and pat dry with a soft cloth.


4. Use a polishing cloth: A microfiber polishing cloth can be used to gently polish your jewelry and remove any surface dirt or tarnish. Simply rub the cloth over your jewelry until it shines.


5. Store your jewelry properly: When not wearing your jewelry, store it in a cool, dry place away from sunlight and other jewelry pieces. You can use a jewelry box or soft pouch to protect your jewelry from scratches and damage.



It is important to note that some types of jewelry, such as those with gemstones or delicate materials, may require professional cleaning or care. If you are unsure how to properly care for your jewelry, it is best to consult a professional jeweler for advice.
