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.
A cheese grater is the perfect earring holder. Now, we’re talking about those full, standup graters that you can buy just about anywhere if you don’t already have one that you can use. Paint over the metal if you want and add lace or whatever else you want to make it a bit more decorative. Then just stick your earring backs into the holes in the grater. Voila! Instant earring organization and it takes just a few minutes and won’t cost anything if you have an old grater that you can use. Note that this one works best for hanging earrings.

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.

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 tried your recipe after discarding a lot of others that did a part-cleaning job so I must admit I was a bit skeptical. To my delight everything I cleaned came out shining and sparkly. I’ve used it on gold, diamonds, emeralds, amethysts but would not use it on pearls.
I just tried this on my Tiffany’s heart and ball chain and realized after I started boiling the water I was out of baking soda…put the vigenar and salt in the boiling water anyways and poured into the pan.

This works without the baking soda! I wished I had taken a video of it! Coolest thing to see happen! Thank you!
