Effective Natural Jewelry Cleaner Recipe
It is great that the market offers such big variety of cleaning products for the home. When it comes to the jewelry, however, it can be really hard to find an effective product or method for cleaning. No matter from what kind of material your precious possessions are made, they also need special care from time to time. There are people who prefer to wear rings, necklaces and earrings all the time, which will inevitably lead to the appearing of unpleasant spots on the surface of the jewelry. Instead of wasting money for professional cleaning, you can just take care of this task yourself. There are different effective recipes you could try, which require only natural ingredients and will certainly give good results.

If you want your jewelry to be always sparkling clean, you will have to start paying more attention to the cleaning. It is easy to forget about your jewelry when you are wearing it all the time. You will need to get used to the cleaning of those objects, the same way you got used to the disinfection of the different areas of your home. This will guarantee the good looks of your jewelry and you won't have to worry about the appearing of any dark spots in the future.

Here are several useful recipes for a natural cleaner, which will definitely work.
  • Baking soda and hot water – Baking Soda can help clean pretty much everything in your home, not just your rings, earrings and other jewelry. Baking Soda is a natural but powerful cleaner and does not scratch surfaces. This makes it the perfect cleaner for the sink, the toilet, the tub and every other similar surface you can think of.  As for your jewelry, you can put one or two teaspoons of baking soda in a cup and add hot water.  Then add your silver necklaces, rings, bracelets and other jewelry. Leave them soak for a couple of hours. After that all you have to do is rinse them thoroughly and they will be like new.
  • Cleaning with white vinegar – White vinegar is another great product, which can be used for the effective disinfection of all parts of the home and of your jewelry as well. Place your rings and other jewelry in a jar and then pour several drops of white Vinegar and one of Tea Tree Oil. These two combined make the perfect disinfectant. Close the jar and leave  overnight. The next morning you can rinse them with cold water. Before you remove your jewelry from the jar, check if something is floating in the liquid (body oils). This is a clear proof that the recipe worked.
  • Dishwashing liquid and salt – For this recipe you will also need water, which you can heat up in the microwave. In a small bowl add the jewelry you want to clean. Add a little baking soda, salt and dishwashing liquid. You can leave the jewelry in there for five or ten minutes, then thoroughly rinse with cold water.
It is very easy to keep your jewelry always sparkling clean. It is simply enough to do one of the previously mentioned natural cleaning recipes every few weeks and you won't have to worry about your special possessions at all. As you can see, you don't need expensive cleaning products which are filled with dangerous chemicals. By mixing several natural and safe ingredients you will be able to achieve excellent results, which will last for a long period of time. Don't wait any more and start organizing your jewelry box to see which objects need to be cleaned immediately.
Thank you so much Anna for sharing all these wonderful homemade solutions with us!
