Here are some easy life hacks that are simple and natural for cleaning your jewelry:
Silver and Sterling Silver Jewelry
Water and Lemon. Yes! That’s really all you need! The acidity of the lemon helps break down built-up dirt and tarnish on your silver jewelry. Just squeeze the lemon generously over your silver and gently rub with a cotton cloth. Have a small bowl/cup full of water on the side to rinse the cloth.
Gold & Gemstones
Cleaning your gold and gemstone jewelry couldn’t be easier with white vinegar. Simply drop the jewelry into a jar of vinegar and let sit for 10 to15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove and scrub with a soft-bristled toothbrush if there is still build up on the metal. Pat dry with a non-fibrous cloth.
Sprinkle some salt on the open side of a lemon half (not the skin) and rub it over the brass. You may also use a soft toothbrush to further rub the lemon juice into the jewelry item. Once this has completed, wash and dry the brass thoroughly.
