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


  1. OMG! I need this so bad! My jewelry box reeks of that "metallic" smell and everything is so dull. Yay!


I appreciate every comment, thanks so much for taking the time. It means A LOT to me. :)
