DIY Jewelry Cleaner

Once a year, I take my fine jewelry to our personal jeweler to make sure that my prongs and clasps are properly tightened and I love the way my jewelry sparkles when I pick it up. I literally feel as if each piece of jewelry is brand new since no one can clean your jewelry like a professional jeweler. But how do you clean your fine accessories in the meantime? It's simple! 
  1. Mix half 409 and half water in a measuring cup or bowl (though it depends on the amount of jewelry I am cleaning, I usually mix 1/4 cup of each)
  2. Drop in your jewels (EXCEPT for pearls)
  3. Leave overnight while you head to Dream Land
  4. Remove in the morning and Sparkle!
Since 409 All Purpose Cleaner is a degreaser, it easily removes the stubborn oils from your skin that tend to cloud your jewelry with no brushing/scrubbing required. It's that simple...and it's that easy!
