Tip of the week!

Happy friday all, while were patiently waiting for the day to go by and finally leave our workstations. I’ve managed to put together some cleaning tips regarding metal jewelry for our tip of the week!

Here is the Tip top Friday jewelry tip of the week!

Gold
Gold needs to be soaked for about 15 minutes in a very easy-to-make solution.

Solution ingredients:

-2 cups of warm water

-6 to 10 drops of a mild dishwashing liquid such as “Joy” or ”Palmolive”  etc.

Now with your solution, gently scrub your gold with a soft-bristle toothbrush. Then rinse with warm water and dry with a soft cloth.

Remember to avoid wearing gold earrings in the shower because soap will dull the gold and also avoid wearing them in swimming pools because chlorine can discolor the metal.

Silver should be rinsed in warm water and patted dry. If silver jewelry is tarnished, use a silver-polishing cloth or a jar of silver-cleaning fluid. Silver-cleaner won’t harm gold or platinum, but it won’t clean them either.

For jewelry with intricate designs, use a silver-cleaning paste which can get into small crevices. Don’t use a toothbrush or other abrasive cleaners because they will scratch the silver. Wipe with a clean soft cloth.

Silver shouldn’t be worn in pools because the chlorine can cause pitting. Pitting is the erosion or formation of little holes that results from silver touching chlorine.

Hope these simple yet applicable tips were helpful for you.

As always,

Live, Life, Lamour
