Shine up your Jewels in minutes
I cannot believe it took me this long to figure out this jewelry secret: shine your duds with toothpaste.
A quick (gentle) scrub with an old toothbrush does it.
If that doesn't do the trick, dip the duds into a solution of lemon juice and baking soda
(sodium bicarbonate for UK peeps) and rinse.
UNREAL! It works. Quick, easy, painless.
No expensive solutions or machines to buy.
I wiped by chains off with a cloth napkin--see the dirt tracks?
The Santini necklace before shot:
Toothpaste was just normal Colgate, nothing special.
The solution for chains:
1/4 cup lemon juice
3 tbsp baking soda
mix well and dunk away
(Rinse with water and lay flat to dry.)
I wiped my box chains with the napkin because they had years of dirt crusted onto them. eeeeewwwwwwweeee
