Jewelry Cleaning

Jewelry cleaning is the practice of removing dirt from jewelry to improve its appearance. Many people buy jewelry, put it on and never take it off, even to clean it, not realizing that they can damage or wear out their jewelry by not cleaning it thoroughly on a regular basis. For those who wear jewelry regularly, keeping their jewelry clean and looking good requires regular effort Here are some general guidelines that may help:

1) Remove your jewelry before bathing:- Remove all jewelry before showering or cleaning because soap can cause a film to form, making it shine less.

2) Use Jewelry Polishing Cloths for Best Results:- Polish silver or gold with a jewelry polishing cloth for best results. Avoid cleaning with tissue or paper towels; it can cause scratches because of fibers in these products.

3) Clean your jewelry with care:- Cleaning your own jewelry regularly can keep it looking good, but be careful. You can either purchase commercial cleaners from a jeweler or make a cleaning a solution yourself. Rubbing alcohol can work wonders, but bleach can literally destroy jewelry so avoid it at all costs. Using warm water is the best bet when cleaning your own jewelry.
4) Avoid cleaning damaged jewelry:- Never clean any jewelry that is damaged, cracked or broken, since the additional handling is likely to worsen the problem. If you find that a piece of jewelry is damaged, it should be repaired as soon as possible.

5) Inspect your jewelry regularly:- Just like anything else, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. When having your jewelry professionally cleaned, it's a good idea to have each item checked and inspected for any possible problems this will prevent any further damage or loss and keep all of your pieces in excellent shape for years.
