Colorful Notes: How To Clean Jewelry Without Toxins

Issue 7 – December 10th, 2020

Most of us know the struggle, we have a giant ball of rusted jewelry either in our closet or in a drawer somewhere. Sometimes, just wiping the rust away with our shirts doesn’t cut it. Here are some proven hacks that will help you to clean your jewelry in the safest ways possible. 
 

1. Natural Dish Soap and Water

This basic duo can get your jewelry looking brand new in no time. Put your jewelry in warm soapy water that consists of any natural dishwashing liquid and use a soft-bristled toothbrush to cleanse it.   If you’re scared of using a brush, you can also use a soapy cloth as a replacement. A cloth should be used to clean the gems. Finally, rinse off with cool water.

2. Aluminum Foil, Baking Soda, and Water

Just a heads up. This method should NOT be used for gemstone jewelry, especially not pearls. Add boiled water to a foil-lined bowl and soak your jewelry inside for about three minutes. Afterward, rinse the jewelry with cool water and buff your items with a soft cloth. 
 

3. Toothpaste and Water

Toothpaste? Yes, we know it sounds weird but it’s true. Toothpaste can clean the hardware and gemstones, but they can’t be used on pearls. For scratched jewelry, put toothpaste and water on a soft-bristled toothbrush and scrub any gunk that your jewelry has collected. Non-scratched jewelry can be cleaned with toothpaste, water, and either a cloth or with your hands. Afterward, you can use a warm damp cloth to wipe away any toothpaste. 
 

4. Distilled White Vinegar

Place your jewelry in a bowl of Vinegar for around 15 minutes, then rinse them with hot water. Finally, dry them off with a soft cloth.
