How To Properly Clean Your Jewelry At Home

How To Properly Clean Your Jewelry At Home

Although getting your jewelry professional cleaned is the best way to ensure your pieces are well taken care of, we know not everyone has the time for this. If you’re unable to have your jewelry cleaned by a professional in the store, continue reading to discover what the best home remedies are for cleaning your jewelry. 

Best Homemade Jewelry Cleaner

The best homemade cleaning solution for your jewelry is a simple mixture: a couple drops of Dawn dish detergent, and warm water. It is crucial that the water is warm, not hot, as skewing the water temperatures too hot or cold can tarnish the jewelry. Dawn is ideal, as it is known for its sensitivity. The process of cleaning is fairly simple; let the piece(s) of jewelry sit for about 5 minutes. If it is extremely dirty, or has build-up in hard-to-reach areas, use a new, baby-sized, extra soft toothbrush. This will ensure the safest process of cleaning the pieces on your own. 

Using a Store-Bought Cleaner

If you want to clean your jewelry and you’re looking to spend a bit more on a solution, we have two recommendations. The first is the Magnasonic, Ultrasonic Jewelry Cleaner (around $45, available on Amazon). This cleaner can handle tough residue as well as heavy tarnish. The second is the Simple Shine Complete Jewelry Cleaning Kit, which can also be purchased through Amazon. This kit is only $28, and comes with a polishing cloth as well.

Cleaning your jewelry is a simple task that often gets overlooked.
