“It is becoming costly to clean my jewels; I wish I could do it alone.”
If you have spent a lot in having your pieces of jewelry cleaned by experts, you must have known that the secret to glamor in jewelry is in its luster.
Wash it at home
Having your rings cleaned by an expert saves you the time and gives you the peace of mind that you are not risking anything. But, you can do much better cleaning at home with the expert information.
Here are 5 expert tips about cleaning your jewelry at home:
Use Vinegar for gold and gemstone
Pour white vinegar in a jar and dip your gold and gemstone rings in it. Let it rest for 15 minutes. Remove and use a soft bristled brush to scrub it all off.

Use warm soapy water for diamonds
Of the most peddled jewelry cleaning lies, diamond ring owners have suffered the most. You must have stumbled upon a belief that toothpaste is the best for cleaning diamonds.
Don’t even try it— toothpaste can’t affect the diamond but is too abrasive for metals that hold it place. The safe bet is to use soapy warm water and a soft bristle.
Use warm sudsy water for Turquoise
You can clean your turquoise rings quickly with warm sudsy water. But unlike diamonds, turquoise is very porous and shouldn’t be submerged in water lest the water leaks in and result in discoloration.
Aluminum foil for silver
If you have ever cleaned your silverware, I bet you used aluminum foil to remove the grime and renew the sparkle. Have you ever thought about doing the same for your silver jewelry?
Well, it works best!
Dish detergents for Karat Gold
What if you could wash your karat gold alongside your dishes and save money? It is possible; drop your karat gold in warm water then introduce few droplets of a dish detergent and let it soak for 15 minutes.
Use a soft bristle to scrub its crevices and remove tarnish. Rinse and wipe with a soft cloth.
