hmm…just tried this for a very tarnished rope chain….didn’t work at all….i did use cider vinegar as it was all I had but followed exactly…smelled horrible! Was cider vinegar not good to use? I’m thinking that is why it smells so bad. Ugh…now to get this horrid smell out of my house! I’m bummed…going to try just boiling water and baking soda now and see if that works at all.

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 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?
Okay… so I was unpacking and going through some of my jewelry … AND…. I found that all of my inexpensive jewelry that has been sitting in my jewelry box was tarnished and yucky and dirty! I forgot I even had some of it! So… I began a search for some kind of homemade jewelry cleaner so I didn’t have to go buy some! I stumbled upon this jewelry cleaner recipe using only boiling water and baking soda so I thought WTH I’ll try it…. AND…. It was like magic! Even my yucky, tarnished CTR ring that I LOVE was Sparkly clean and looked brand new! It made me very happy so I thought I’d share my find! Here’s the recipe below!
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.
