I can do this for you, but if you just want to make it look the best it can at home here’s a few how tips::
• Firstly put your jewellery on last. You are supposed to avoid perfumes and creams etc when wearing jewellery, but we all know we like to smell and feel nice too! So if you are going to wear perfume put it on before the jewellery and let it soak into the skin, that way you won’t spray it on top.
• Never wear jewellery swimming! The chlorine and chemicals in the pool water turns silver black and will damage pearls and porous stones.
• Don’t keep silver jewellery in a leather-lined box as the leather releases oils and tarnishes it. Instead keep items in plastic re-sealable bags and no air can get in.
• Take jewellery off when at the gym or gardening, as weights and heavy equipment with dent rings and bracelets.
• Rub down jewellery with a soft cloth like a e-cloth after wear to get rid of any residues like perfume, creams and dare I say it sweat (even though us girlies only glow!!)
• Wear your jewellery! It polishes it self again your clothes, and it looks far better on than in the bottom of the jewellery box.
To clean jewellery, really I think the best thing you can do is soak it in some warm water with a little washing up liquid or detergent, then with a very soft toothbrush clean it over, rinse off and dry on some kitchen towel then buff over with a soft cloth.
There are cleaners available such a dips and creams, I personally like the dip for silver jewellery, but it can’t contain stones as it can damage them and be careful not to knot chains up. But this is a bit more harmful than just fairy liquid.
I have also heard of some weird and wonderful ways!
Rubbing ketchup all over the jewellery and then cleaning it off! I guess it’s the acids in the ketchup that eat away the dirt, but then how do you get the ketchup out of little holes, and it will be all sticky! Stick to it on chips I think
