This works great, but be careful with gem stones. Some of them like amethyst and emerald and any others which are in the quartz family are heat sensitive. Just put them in once the water has cooled down some. Cubic Zirconia are fazed by anything. They are lab grown under high heat and pressure. I fire them in a kiln at 1650 degrees in silver metal clay jewelry, and they are bothered at all.
Wood floor samples are around a quarter each at your local home improvement store. You can use a few of these to create a beautiful jewelry organizer that will hang on the wall. You need a collection of samples (or you could just use a board if that’s what you have on hand), wood glue, a few screws and something to hang it – Velcro picture strips work well. The screws (and you can buy decorative ones if you want) are what holds all those necklaces and keeps them from getting tangled. Just hang it in the bedroom or bathroom and you’ll always have your necklaces perfectly organized.
The first evidence you’re going to have that this homemade jewelry cleaner worked will be all the stuff floating around in your vinegar/tea tree oil liquid. The last time I put my jewelry in this mixture I didn’t think it was too dirty, and it didn’t exactly need cleaning. Within just a few minutes, though, there was so much stuff floating around in the water that I was appalled.
I just went on your site this morning because I had a lot of jewellery to cleaned. I found that all glitter like gold. The other things are glittering as well. I always used the commercial brand but it ruined quite a few things.I Used all the things that were called for and it worked out fine. If you have a high piece I just put it in a smaller container.
