DIY Eco-Friendly Jewelry Cleaner: Friday Quickie

Eco Friendly Wedding RingWhether you’re a jewelry whore or you only don an everyday watch you (or your significant other or whoever) probably spent some hard-earned cash on these pieces. Naturally you want to keep them looking nice and shiny! The good news is there is such a thing as eco-friendly jewelry cleaner.

The majority of jewelry cleaners are filled with harsh chemicals. I found that using household products can be just as effective, and a lot greener.

Homemade Eco Friendly Jewelry Cleaner:

To clean your jewels mix one cup of warm water (not too hot) with 1 tablespoon of salt and 1 tablespoon of baking soda in a bowl and let jewelry sit (one piece at a time) for about 10 minutes. Voila – shine and sparkle restored!

As an aside – I once worked in an office where the engaged girls would bring in their toxic jewelry cleaner every Friday and take turns cleaning their engagement rings while talking loudly about their weddings. Um yeah, this made the single girls (and dudes) pretty annoyed. Heads up: clean your jewels at home ladies, not in the office please. 😉
