I just used this to clean mine and my husband’s silver wedding bands. This stuff is great. Our bands were looking pretty dingy and we bought some professional silver cleaner and it made them look worse. I was horrified, but then I found this recipe, tried it, and had success. I cut the recipe in half since I was just cleaning two rings. It apparently didn’t change the cleaning power because they haven’t been this shiny in forever! Thanks for posting the recipe. Will use from now on!

If you happen to be replacing your staircase spindle, you’ve got the makings for the perfect jewelry holder. Even if you don’t have a spare spindle sitting around, you can pick them up really cheap at yard sales, flea markets, or any number of thrift stores. You’ll need a round piece of wood to hold the spindle up and some wire for hanging your jewelry. This is a beautiful jewelry organizer that you can paint or stain any color you need to match your décor and it’s really easy to make. The wires stick out in different places, giving you the perfect place for hanging all of your longer jewelry pieces.


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.
An old frame can be repurposed into a necklace holder and in case you can’t find a suitable frame you can always build one from scratch using a plywood panel and some scrap wood pieces. You’ll also need some fabric but you can also use paper if you want. In any case, you that to cover the plywood panel so you can have a clean backdrop for the necklaces to contrast with.
Pegboards are great for organizing just about anything and jewelry is certainly no exception. A piece of pegboard is really cheap and you can use it to create a beautiful jewelry organizer that will hold all of your necklaces, rings, earrings, and bracelets. Just frame the pegboard (if you want) and then add hooks, cups, small baskets, and anything else that you need to keep that jewelry organized. You can hang necklaces from hooks and use plastic cups or baskets to keep your rings organized. Really, there are so many ways that you can put a pegboard to work keeping things organized.

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.
Presto! This works like MAGIC! I’m a jewelry-maker, and sometimes generous friends bestow me with old costume jewelry that I love to take apart and repurpose. I received just such a lot the other day, but the pieces I was interested in were dull and discolored and tarnished. Since I didn’t pay anything for them, and since they were useless to me in their present condition, I figured I’d try this.

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?

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.
