I used Color Oops on my hair and forgot to remove my rings before rinsing. I looked at my hand to discover my BIG ring was yellow and black with a slight oil slick color in spots (rainbow). I immediately got upset and started to panic. I tried your recipe in a small tupperware lined with foil. IT WORKED!!!! My ring is back to the original three colors.
Turn an ordinary picture frame into a great looking jewelry organizer! The process is pretty simple, remove the back parts of picture frame that help it to stand alone and just paint the cardboard and refit again! Paint the cardboard in paint colors you like and finish with a gold leaf as shown! Now you can start using it as a jewelry organizer!
A wooden accordion rack is a great way to keep your jewelry organized and they are really cheap at the Dollar Store or Dollar Tree. You could also use plastic racks if that’s what you want. You can paint or decorate them however you want and then just hang them on the wall to hold necklaces and bracelets. Stack a few of them up the wall to have somewhere to keep all of your longer pieces organized. They make the perfect jewelry organizers and they’re really cheap, which is always a good thing. Plus, there’s little work involved to turn them into jewelry holders.
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.
Just tried this on jewelry I have not worn for years. OMG!!! It’s amazing. I actually went on a manhunt around the house looking for more gold and silver to try it on. I was recently thinking of having my white gold ring re-dipped. Not anymore. It looks brand new again. I will definitely use this anytime I need to clean my jewelry. Thanks millions for sharing it!

be careful with the white gold, most of it is plated with rhodium (a metal in the platinum family); white gold itself is dull, and this is done to make it shiny. I had a jeweller in the family, and got my original wedding band from him, many years ago. When he asked if I wanted it plated, I said no. I’m sure my face was a treat when I first saw it; it was immediately plated! This method of cleaning might remove the plating eventually. I’d check with a jeweller before doing it too often.
