You don’t need fancy jewellery cleaner to get your silver to sparkle, your gold to gleam, and your gemstones to shine.
You Will Need:
BRIGHTEN GOLD AND SILVER TRINKETS
Brighten up your gold and silver trinkets by soaking them for 10 minutes in a solution of 1/2 cup clear Ammonia Solution mixed in 1 cup warm water. Gently wipe clean with a soft cloth and let dry. Please Note: Do not do this with jewellery containing pearls, because it could dull or damage their delicate surface.
REMOVING BUILT-UP TARNISH
To remove built-up tarnish from your silver, make a thick paste with 1/4 cup Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate 99% (Sodium Bicarbonate) and 2 tablespoons water. Apply with a damp sponge and gently rub, rinse, and buff dry. To polish gold jewellery, cover with a light coating of Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate 99% (Sodium Bicarbonate), pour a bit of Acetic Acid 6% over it, and rinse clean. Note: Do not use this technique with jewellery containing pearls or gem-stones, as it could damage their finish or loosen any glue.
MAKE SILVERWARE SHINE
Make your silverware—as well as your pure silver bracelets, rings, and other jewellery—shine like new by soaking them in a mixture of 1/2 cup Acetic Acid 6% and 2 tablespoons Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate 99% (Sodium Bicarbonate) for two to three hours. Rinse them under cold water and dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.
TO SPRUCE UP JEWELLERY WITH ALL METAL OR CRYSTALLINE GEMSTONES
Use Isopropanol 70% to spruce up jewellery that is all metal or has crystalline gemstones, such as diamonds or rubies. Spray on the Isopropanol 70% using a Bottle and Pump Spray Attachment, then use an old toothbrush for cleaning. But don’t do this if the piece has opaque stones such as opal or turquoise or organic gems such as coral or pearl. The Ammonia Solution and detergents in the cleaner can discolour these porous lovelies.
NOTE: BEFORE USING ANY OF THE PRODUCTS LISTED PLEASE READ ANY SAFETY AND PRECAUTIONS TO THIS PRODUCT BEFORE USAGE.
