All precious jewelry becomes tarnished, blemished and unclean in time. A good majority of the standard cleaning options usually  include chemicals that are not eco-friendly.

To help you clean your jewelry with eco friendly green methods, we have compiled some suggestions for you below including a silver jewelry cleaner:

  • 1. Use any of the many different commercial precious jewelry cleaning products that are plant-based and non-toxic.
  • 2. In a rubber dish or other container (you won’t be very happy if your precious jewelry slides down the drain), soak gold jewelry in warm, soapy water for about five minutes. Use biodegradable soft dish soap and filtered water, as chlorine can discolor some gold jewelry.
  • Utilizing a soft brush – an old tooth brush is suitable – delicately scrub each piece of your precious jewelry, rinse, and lay on a soft towel. Then gently rub them dry with a soft cloth.
  • 3. Silver jewelry (without gems) can be cleaned by a non-toxic chemical method in your home that does not include a great deal of scrubbing and rubbing.
    This is specifically good for chains, bracelets and necklaces.
    For a silver jewelry cleaner, lay a piece of aluminum foil in the bottom of a pan. Lay your silver jewelry on the foil; shake some baking soda over the pieces of jewelry. Pour boiling water over the jewelry until it is covered.
    Let the jewelry sit for about five minutes or longer. Remove the silver items of jewelry, rinse, and rub dry with a soft cloth.
    Repeat if needed.
  • 4. A good alternative to the above approach is to utilize salt instead of baking soda. You can include a bit of naturally degradable, liquid soap to the salt-and-water solution.
  • 5. An easy homemade jewelry cleaner is to cut a wedge of lemon and rub straight on to the surface of the silver jewelry. Rub with a soft cloth, then rinse and massage dry. You can likewise soak silver jewelry in a lemon juice and water solution and rub dry.
  • 6. Diamonds can be cleaned as explained in number 1 above or if you are feeling a little more adventurous: use tooth paste, carefully scrubbed on using a soft toothbrush and washed in warm water, as this will also brighten diamonds.
  • 7. Gemstones that are softer than diamonds (such as garnet and emerald) must just be cleaned using soft fabrics and gentle, naturally degradable soap.
  • 8. Pearls and opals are very soft, and need to be cleaned like softer gemstones as noted in
    step seven above.
