How to clean gold jewelry: the simplest methods
Most people often face the problem when gold jewelry starts to tarnish and lose its attractive appearance. You don't have to take them to a jewelry store for professional cleaning right away; you can do it yourself.
You can improve the condition of your jewelry in just 15 minutes. OBOZREVATEL has found ways to help you do it quickly.
To clean jewelry from dirt and dust, you will need warm water and dish detergent or baby shampoo. Fill two bowls with warm water, but note that it shouldn't be boiling water because it can damage your jewelry.
Next, add a few drops of detergent to one bowl. Soak your jewelry in it for 15 minutes. This will soften the dirt. Remove the jewelry and use a soft toothbrush to clean it.
Then rinse thoroughly in another bowl of clean water to remove all soap residue and gently pat the jewelry dry with a towel.
Baking soda will help to remove any dirt and effectively clean your jewelry. Stir two teaspoons of baking soda in a bowl of warm water, immerse the jewelry, and leave it for 5-10 minutes.
Then rinse in warm water and gently dry with a towel. But never leave them to dry in the open air, as this can lead to water stains.
You can bring back the bright color of your jewelry with foil. Line a bowl with the dull side of the foil and place the jewelry on the shiny side.
Next, mix a tablespoon of salt and baking soda in a cup of warm water and pour it into the bowl so that the solution completely covers the jewelry. Leave it for 15 minutes. Then rinse in warm water and gently wipe with a cloth.
These methods will also help clean jewelry.
