So, how can you keep your jewellery from losing sparkle? Here we have lined some jewellery cleaner that can save you some time and a lot of money for each jewellery.

 

1. Toothpaste

Use ordinary white toothpaste (we used Colgate) to clean your precious gold, silver and zircon jewellery. It takes hardly 2 minutes for gold and zircon ornaments and takes 5-15 minutes for silver depends on the tarnish on jewellery.

  • For Gold and Zircon, take a pea size amount on your finger tip and rub gently on gold and zircon in a circular motion, in order not to scratch it. Now, brush it with a very soft brush or toothbrush. Then, rinse and let it dry.
  • For silver, make a solution of water and white toothpaste. Let your silver jewellery soak into this solution for 10 minutes. Now, use a gentle brush to remove tarnish from silver. Rinse and let dry. You’ll see a clean silver once it’s dry.
2. Baking Soda

For cleaning your engagement ring, mix one part of baking soda and one part of water. Let your jewellery sit in the solution for 1 minute or two. Now take a soft brush to gently scrub the ring. Careful not to scratch the stone or metal of your ring.

3. Liquid detergent

For this, you need:

  • Liquid dish detergent
  • Aluminium foil
  • Baking soda
  • Hot water
  • A bowl

Add salt, baking soda and liquid dish detergent into the bowl. Pour hot water over it and watch water sizzle. Let your jewellery soak into it for 10 minutes. Then, rinse and let dry.

To make the solution, Take 1/2 cup white vinegar and mix it with 2 tbsp of baking soda. It is used to remove heavy tarnish from silver jewellery. To do so, soak your jewellery into this gentle solution for 2-3 hours. Then, rinse and let dry.
