When your favorite pieces of jewelry no longer sparkle, you can clean them at home with a simple jewelry cleaner with ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. Commercial cleaners can be a bit on the expensive side and are full of harsh chemicals that are harmful to the environment. The best natural jewelry cleaner costs pennies to make and doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals.
For starters, consider repurposing a spice rack into a necklace holder. It would be an easy transformation. All you’d need to do is stain or paint the rack and then screw in some hooks. When you’re done, install it on the wall. IKEA Bekvam racks have this rod that can come in very handy when hanging necklaces or bracelets.

I’ve been using the foil in the pan, baking soda, & salt with really hot water to clean my silver safely for years. Just make sure the silver is below the water line or it could stain and you won’t be able to remove the line. Large pieces can be cleaned in the bath tub, with the foil laying on the bottom. The foil is required because it causes a reaction with the salt, the soda is to soften the water.

Over time, you may notice that your silver jewelry is looking tarnished and you have wondered how to clean a silver necklace or bracelet.

This homemade silver cleaner is simple to make and won’t cost you a ton of money because most of the ingredients are ones you probably already have in your pantry.
Over time, frequently-worn jewelry pieces will develop a grimy layer that can dim the brightest gemstone. The best way to keep jewelry clean is to take it to a jeweler for a professional cleaning. However, the most convenient, inexpensive and earth-friendly jewelry cleaning method is to make your own homemade cleaner from items as simple as water and dish soap.
Taking an old cigar box and an old sweater, you can make a great ring holder that not only organizes your rings, it protects them as well. What you end up with is a ring display that looks a lot like what you see in the jewelry store, only a lot cheaper. This project is easy and only takes about an hour or so from start to finish. You end up with a place where you can slide your rings in to keep them from being lost or knocked around in the jewelry box. You could also use this to stick your stud earrings in and keep them from being misplaced.
Unlike other precious metals, gold doesn’t tarnish over a period. That doesn’t mean, however, that you don’t need to keep it clean. The oils and dirt from your hands can quickly make it look dull. The baking soda, salt, and aluminum foil used to create this homemade gold jewelry cleaner generate a chemical exchange called an ion transfer, which is a natural way to clean metals.
If you have a few pieces of chicken wire on hand, you can create an absolutely stunning hanger for your earrings and other jewelry. You’ll need a one-by-two foot piece of chicken wire as well as a few pieces of wood to build the frame. The framed holder hangs with a piece of ribbon or whatever you want to use to hang it and it costs only about $2 to make. Plus, it’s relatively easy and will hold loads of jewelry. Add a few small nails or hooks to the wooden part for holding necklaces and bracelets and your earrings will just hang across the wire in the center.
I tried this and it worked great for some of my pieces (all are 925 silver from Tiffany) but one of my necklaces actually turned darker. Tried the solution two more times and left it to soak, tried to use a polishing cloth after the solution under running water and no change. So bizarre because it worked like magic on all my other silver. Thoughts?
