Toothpaste is a really good jewelry cleaner. This is perfect when you want to clean up your jewelry and your out on the town, perhaps after a fun night in downtown Sacramento. Take a tablespoon of warm water, an inch of toothpaste and mix these together to make the toothpaste less thick. This is mildly abrasive, it works and grime off of the jewelry, and you can combine it with a soft-bristled toothbrush for extra scrubbing. While toothpaste is mildly abrasive, it will not scratch your jewelry. Rinse well once you are done.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”6467″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1505349017203{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]ALUMINUM FOIL
Tarnished silver reacts well to aluminum foil. Take a tray, line it with a clean piece of foil and spread your jewelry out on the tray. Take baking soda and sprinkle it onto each piece of jewelry so each piece is mildly coated. Next, boil a few cups of water and then gently pour this onto the jewelry with the baking soda on them. The purpose of the foil is to collect the tarnish from the jewelry because it picks it up and off of the jewelry. It’s a good idea to do one side of your jewelry, turn it over and then do the other side so that it is evenly clean. When you’re done, use warm water to rinse well and gently dry it.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”6463″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1505349398099{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]ANTACIDS
antacidThose antacids you take for heartburn can also work to keep your jewelry sparkling clean. You want to use the antacids that work as an effervescent solution because the fizzling and bubbling work to clean the jewelry.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”6466″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1505349450794{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]BOIL YOUR JEWELRY
Don’t think that all jewelry can be boiled. Delicate gemstones can be ruined. But solid gold can be boiled. Make sure nothing is glued on and that the gold is not cold before putting it into boiling water. This is best left for those pieces that are not cleaned by anything else. Put your jewelry into a bowl, slowly pour the boiled water over it, keep pouring very slowly until the jewelry is fully covered by the water. Allow this to sit until the water cools and then gently scrub each piece with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Dry thoroughly once you are done.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”6465″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1505349547151{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]GET A $25 GIFT CODE HERE
