Stainless steel is used commonly in fashion jewelry to substitute for copper or nickel, making it a great choice for those allergic to those metals. Instead of paying a jeweler to clean pieces, you can care for your jewelry in the comfort of your own home with common household products. Here are some easy steps for cleaning stainless steel jewelry.
What you'll need:
Step 1: Combine the Baking Soda and Water in the Bowl
If you're cleaning a large amount of jewelry you can add more to the mixture, just remember to keep a 2-1 ratio with a consistency that's similar to toothpaste.
Step 2: Dip Your Toothbrush into the Mixture and Scrub the Jewelry
Scrub your jewelry clean. Make sure you get deep into the tiny cracks and crevices with the toothbrush bristles.
Step 3: Rinse Off the Jewelry with Warm Water
Plug the sink before you rinse off your jewelry so that it doesn't slip down the drain.
Step 4: Dry Off Your Pieces with a Soft Towel
Give your jewelry a quick towel dry to remove excess water. Then, let it sit for a few minutes to completely dry before you put it back on or store it away.
