How to Clean Your Jewelry at Home
Step 1. Wash jewelry thoroughly in warm soapy water (use a mild liquid dish soap).
Step 2. Thoroughly rinse jewelry.
Step 3. Place jewelry in plastic measuring cup (or similar container with a pour spout) large enough to hold the jewelry and tarnish remover without overflowing.
Step 4. Pour enough liquid tarnish remover into the measuring cup to submerge the jewelry.
DO NOT SOAK JEWELRY IN TARNISH REMOVER!
Step 5. Gently swirl the contents of the cup just enough to create a current in the cup, not enough to tumble the jewelry (do not put your fingers into the cup). Take care not to spin the liquid from the cup. If you do so, thoroughly clean the contaminated surface with soap and water.
Step 6. After 10 to 15 SECONDS (NOT MINUTES!), pour the tarnish remover into a separate seal-able, clean, plastic bottle; or back into the original container.
We recommend using a new container to hold about 25% of the liquid as your active bottle, and refilling this bottle from the contents of the original bottle as the new bottle is depleted: this will keep the majority of the liquid in its cleanest and most effective state.
Step 7. Put a pea sized drop of mild liquid dishwashing soap into the measuring cup with the jewelry. Fill the cup with warm water while gently swirling the contents of the cup (do not put your fingers in the cup). Thoroughly irrigate the cup until all soap is emptied from the cup.
Step 8. Thoroughly dry jewelry. Allowing the jewelry to air dry can result in water spots.
Step 9. Store jewelry in a clean, dry place. Zip-lock bags provide the greatest protection from tarnish re-occurrence.
