    Default Homemade Jewelry Cleaner

    This stuff works great!

    1 tbsp salt
    1 tbsp baking soda
    1 tbsp dish soap
    1 cup water

    Heat water in the microwave for 1 or 2 minutes.
    Pour hot water into bowl. Place salt, soda, and dishwashing liquid into bowl. Place jewelry in and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Rinse jewelry in cool water and dry jewelry completely with soft cloth. Discard solution after use and make a new batch next time.

    I kept the old basket from my store-bought jewelry cleaner and use that to get the jewelry in and out of the bowl or mug. I also use the old brush to get into the crevices. If you don't have these use an old toothbrush and I recommend pouring the water/jewelry through a small strainer. The mixture is very drying to hands and you don't want to lose that jewelry down the drain!

    Hope this is helpful to someone!

    I have a LOT of sterling silver jewelry. Does this work on that or is this more for the stones?

    Thanks for the tip - I already have the jar to re-fill it with. These type of home made cleaners not only save money but save empty containers from ending up in the landfill.
