Four Easy Steps To Clean Your Jewelry
Solid gold and diamond fine jewelry is timeless and precious and we tend to take extra care of things that are precious to us. So why, then, do we go months or even years without cleaning our jewelry? Because, it seems a bit intimidating and difficult; the first Google result that comes up when you ask “how to clean your jewelry” requires you to momentarily slip into the role of a chemist. Besides, how dirty does jewelry really get? Well, the answer is: really dirty!
Even if you can’t physically see dirt forming on your jewelry, it still collects all of the particles you encounter throughout your day: dirt, dust, skin cells, lotion, oil, and more. If this causes you to wrinkle your nose a bit, don’t worry, we have a quick and easy way to clean your diamond and gold jewelry that’s both safe and effective (and does not require a graduate degree in chemistry!).
All you need is a bowl of hot water, dish soap, a toothbrush, a paper towel, and a microfiber cloth. No harsh chemicals. No fancy equipment. No hassle.
Let’s break down the process into four easy steps:
Step 1: Grab a bowl of hot water and add dish soap. Depending on the size of your bowl, about 1 teaspoon of soap should be enough.
Step 2: Gently place any gold or diamond jewelry you want to clean into the bowl and let it soak for 10 minutes.
Step 3: Once the 10 minutes have passed, gently scrub each piece of jewelry with the toothbrush. 15-20 seconds of scrubbing will do the trick.
Step 4: Rinse the jewelry and pat it dry with a paper towel. Shine it up with the microfiber cloth.
And that’s it, your jewelry is clean! This is such an easy way to ensure your diamond and solid gold jewelry are kept in the best condition possible and stay dazzling. Try it out for yourself, and stay tuned for more jewelry tips and tricks.
