When jewelry becomes wet and is exposed to the air, it can become oxidized or tarnished. Most people want their jewelry to look brand new and in great condition all the time, and even if your jewelry is tarnished, cleaning it properly with the right ingredients is key. You might be surprised that the cleaning agents that work best do not come from a jewelry store, and they don't cost an arm and a leg to purchase. They are everyday items that are sitting in your kitchen or bathroom at this moment.

Things You'll Need

  • Non-ammonia window cleaner
  • All-natural toothpaste
  • Old soft toothbrush

Dip the toothbrush into the non-ammonia window cleaner.

Scrub all jewels and gems gently with the toothbrush.

Rinse the toothbrush.

Put a small dab of all-natural toothpaste on the toothbrush.

Scrub the silver bands gently.

Rinse out the toothbrush and the jewelry.

Hang the jewelry to dry or place flat on a towel.
