Jewelry Cleaning Recipe December 20, 2017

Posted by indigobunting in Uncategorized.

I’m about a 4.5-hour drive away from Route 153. Last night I grabbed a pair of earrings I’d packed to wear and noticed that they need a cleaning. A few years ago I found a really good recipe for this task. I’m always afraid I’ll lose it (even though it’s printed out at home), so I figure I’ll put it here for backup/safekeeping/your information. Turns out it’s all over the Internet, even on Epicurious.

1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 tablespoon dish detergent
1 cup water
1 piece aluminum foil

Heat water in the microwave for 1 or 2 minutes.

Cut a piece of aluminum foil that roughly covers the bottom of a small bowl (like a cereal bowl).

Pour hot water into bowl. Place salt, soda, and dishwashing liquid into bowl. Place jewelry on top of foil and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Rinse jewelry in cool water and dry jewelry completely with soft cloth. Discard solution after use and make a new batch next time.
