Jewelry > Gold, Platinum, and. Gem Stones

Alka-Seltze. To clean jewelry, drop two Alka tablets into a glass of water and immerse the jewelry for two minutes. The effervescent action of the sodium bicarbonate does the trick.

Arm & Hammer Baking Soda. Instead of buying jewelry cleaner, make a paste from Arm & Hammer Baking Soda and water and use it to clean your jewelry. Baking soda is a mild abrasive.

Canada Dry Club Soda. To clean diamonds, rubies, sapphires, and emeralds, soak the gems in Canada Dry Club Soda.

Colgate Regular Flavor Toothpaste. To clean jewelry, squeeze a dab of Colgate Regular Flavor Toothpaste on a clean, soft cloth as a nontoxic cleaning agent. Then rinse clean.

Efferdent. Drop two Efferdent denture cleansing tablets in a glass of water, soak the diamond jewelry in the solution until the water turns clear, and rinse the diamonds thoroughly. Efferdent is strong enough to clean gunk from dentures, but gentle enough not to harm the dentures. A diamond is one of the strongest substances known to man, so the Efferdent won’t harm the diamond. Also, you can kill two birds with one stone by cleaning your diamond ring together with your dentures. Do not use Efferdent to clean silver jewelry, otherwise you risk darkening and pitting the silver.)

Parsons’ Ammonia and Oral-B Toothbrush. Mix one part Parsons’ Ammonia and two parts warm water and soak dia mond and gold jewelry in the solution for five minutes. Brush the jewelry with a clean, used soft Oral-B Toothbrush and rinse clean with water.

Pink Pearl Eraser. Use a Pink Pearl Eraser to gently scour gold- plated items to remove grease and grime.

Purell Instant Hand Sanitizer. To clean gemstones and gold jewelry, use a few drops of Purell Instant Hand Sanitizer—the soapless, antibacterial hand sanitizer—and wipe clean with a soft cloth.

Scrubbing Bubbles. To clean a diamond engagement ring, spray Scrubbing Bubbles into a small cup, drop in the ring, let sit overnight, and rinse clean with hot water in the morning.

Simple Green. Place gold jewelry in a drinking glass, fill with Simple Green all-purpose cleaner (from the trigger-spray bot tle), swirl the jewelry a few times, and let stand for one hour. Rinse thoroughly with water and dry.

Smirnoff Vodka. Soak gold and diamond jewelry in Smirnoff Vodka for five minutes, then rinse and dry.
