I try this and it was nice because my silver necklace cleaned from the recipe cleaner, and it's shiny silver again, and since because i have polishing cloth for jewelries, i used it also for my silver and it's more great looking like brand new ^__^ Thank you for the recipe cleaner.
I made this Jewelry Cleaner for my wedding band of 5 years that I have never had cleaned. I had forgotten how sparkly the diamonds used to be until I cleaned my ring. It sparkles just like when it was new. Thanks for posting this. I did this for "Zaar Cookbook Tag".
Worked brilliantly on a very old tarnished silver chain and pendant with a swarovski crystal. It once again sparkles like the day I bought it 20 years ago.
Used it on a silver and garnet set of necklace and earrings and they are so shiny now! There is still a very slight patina on the setting of the necklace, but I've owned them for upwards of 15 years and NEVER cleaned or polished them before, so some proper polish may be necessary.<br/><br/>*Didn't have any baking soda, so I used baking powder and it seems to be a good substitute.
Just used this for about 3 minutes on my white gold, diamond ring set. Two bands have 10 little round diamonds and WOWEY!! They are so sparkly! At first I didn't think the white gold looked much cleaner but after I rinsed it and dried it - it looks SO much better! Reminds me of how it looked when my hubby asked me to marry him! : ) Happy day! THANK YOU for the recipe!
I followed the instructions and it worked better than the stinky store bought cleaner. Some of the silver jewelery hadn't been cleaned in 10 yrs. Not bad at all for "free".
I just used this recipe to clean a silver Tiffany necklace and ring. I NEVER take either off, and they were super dull and getting grimy (the ring especially has several nooks and crannies). This "recipe" worked like a charm! I was skeptical, but I am so glad my misgivings were unfounded - my jewelry looks GREAT!!
DO NOT USE on Pandora bracelets! It will tarnish them. I tried it on an earring and it worked but turned my entire bracelet yellow/brassy. Works wonders for silver Medic Alert bracelets and jewelry though!
Incredible!<br/><br/>I'm not sure why it didn't work for some people... I literally made a big bowl full of this stuff and dumped all of my entire jewelry box contents in there. This is my first time making this. I had a platinum diamond channel set ring that I never could get the crud btwn and under diamonds out of, white gold rings, yellow gold rings, a diamond solitaire, a bunch of 24kt solid gold chains, sterling silver bracelets, 10kt plated gold (fake) cz rings, 14kt gold bracelets, lots of fake studded earrings. and a jade pendant. I didn't even bother to measure anything but tried to eyeball my proportions. I timed it for about 10 minutes, rinsed everything...and I could not believe how "new" everything looked. My diamonds look as though they were just steam cleaned by my jeweler. All of my gold is much brighter, my silver shines like a mirror, and even my fake jewelry and fake stones are sparkly. The solution seems gentle enough to me and didn't even ruin my cheap stuff. Would still be interested to know the science behind it and why it didn't work for some people.
I have used this jewelry cleaner several times now with good results. I use it on everything and it has worked great for me. Works wonders on gold and diamonds as well as my sterling silver. I bought an entire jewelry box full of costume earrings and used this stuff to clean them. It worked great!! Everything is now sparkling clean.
