Whether you're always wearing a piece of jewelry or you keep it safely tucked away in a jewelry box, its shine and luster are sure to diminish over time. Oil from your skin, body lotions, perfumes, and makeup, as well as everyday dirt, can accumulate over time and make metals and stones appear dingy and flat.
Jewelry can be expensive, so it's important that you take good care of it. Many do-it-yourself (DIY) jewelry cleaners contain slightly abrasive ingredients, such as baking soda, or harsh soaps and detergents. Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner is non-abrasive and non-corrosive, so it will not wear down gold or sterling silver jewelry. It's also non-toxic and clean-rinsing so you don't need to worry about skin irritation from any cleaner residue.
Tip: When you're finished soaking and scrubbing, pour the used Simple Green in the sink. You can use it to quickly wipe down your sink and help deodorize your drain.
Do not use Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner or any other degreaser to clean pearls, opals or emeralds. A degreaser can remove the oils with which these gems are treated, removing their luster and causing damage. We also do not recommend cleaning costume jewelry, gold-plated or gold-filled jewelry â€“ these should be cleaned only with warm water.
