Owning tons of jewellery can be a pain at times. Especially when your favourite bling just doesn’t have the same sparkle, instead of purchasing expensive cleaning solutions or bucking out for a professional scrubbing, try this easy jewellery cleaner.  Before you know it, your special gems will be dazzling.

What You’ll Need:

Small bowl

1 tablespoon salt

1 tablespoon baking soda

1 teaspoon dish detergent

1 cup hot water

Aluminum foil

Paper towel

Old toothbrush

Directions:

  1. Gather what you need for making the jewellery cleaner. You can use your favourite dish detergent — to add a serious grease-busting aspect to this concoction. The salt, baking soda, and aluminum foil create a chemical exchange called an ion transfer, which naturally cleans metals
  2. Line the bowl with a square of aluminum foil, and then top with the salt, baking soda, and dish detergent. Now add the hot water and watch as the liquid fizzes. Drop in your jewelry and let sit in the cleaner for 10 minutes.
  3. Remove your jewellery and use the toothbrush to gently scrub around any groves in the jewellery, or gemstones.
  4. You’ll love how your jewellery sparkles after the quick cleaning, which is safe to do over and over.
