Be careful with precious gems, stones and metals.

I have a great jewelry polish that is super simple. Take a small piece of aluminum foil, about 1″ square, and put it in the bottom of a coffee cup. Add about a T of baking soda. Pour boiling water over it and dunk your jewelry. You can drop it in and swirl it around, or you can just dunk it a few times and it cleans any tarnish off in seconds. I like to put a twist tie or string on the jewelry and then just dunk it. When I pull it out, sometimes there are some little dark spots. I just rub them out with my finger. This works well on tarnished silver dishes or tableware as well.

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.

I need to try this on my grandmother’s sterling service that got willed to me. My Dad keeps asking me why I don’t set the table with it for holidays; I don’t want to tell him I’m afraid his mother’s silverware would give us all food poisoning…I have silver polish but I wince–and quickly find another chore to do–every time I think about having to stand there and individually polish an 80-piece sterling service set!
This is a magic recipe! I am on a lot of medication and it doesn’t t take long before my silver jewellery becomes tarnished. So annoying!

I’ve used it on gold, diamonds, emeralds, amethysts but would not use it on pearls.
You can’t use anything else instead of baking soda. None of the other ingredients are necessary either… It’s specifically the vinegar (acetic acid) and the baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) that react and cause the reaction and hence the bubbles. The water actually inactivates both significantly and the salt (sodium chloride) is totally inert in the presence of the acid and base. As a matter of fact, when you combine the acetic acid and sodium bicarb, you get water and salt. The foil also does nothing…you can use any dish.

Your jewelry will be noticeably cleaner after just the soak. It will even be disinfected, too. Adding the baking soda scrub at the end will ensure that you get everything clean, especially in all the little crevices. If your kitchen faucet has a high-pressure setting, that will be the best thing to use for rinsing your jewelry. Just make sure you hold on tight, because searching for lost objects in the sink trap or garbage disposal is one of the least pleasant tasks in the world. Take my word for it. Consider using a strainer.
