Jewelry Cleaning Guide


The number one question I get:

“How do I clean my jewelry?”

It is really so easy if you follow these instructions:

Step 1

Store it– this is the most important step. You don’t need a fancy box. The most important thing is to keep your jewelry away from air when you are not wearing it. Why? Because the air creates a chemical reaction with silver that makes silver turn brown/black.

When you do need to clean it, it’s really easy.

Step 2

Don’t use harsh chemicals on your jewelry or while you are wearing it. You know one of the worst things for your jewelry?

Antibacterial soap. (Hand sanitizer is okay.)

It will turn your silver brown. You can bring it back to glory- follow the next step and bring the shine back.

Step 3

Baking soda and dish soap: I use these two everyday to clean jewelry. You mix equal amounts of baking soda and dish soap (not antibacterial dish soap) and your fingers to rub it clean. Get a toothbrush to scrub the crevices. If all the grime doesn’t come off the first time, mix a little extra baking soda and do it again.
