TLC For Your Stainless Jewelry
Stainless steel is a very commonplace material. We see it almost everywhere. But did you know that it’s also very much used in designing jewelry? Stainless jewelry is a big favorite for daily wear because of its durability. And when it comes to aesthetics, it is often mistaken for its finer and more precious metal counterparts, except that pieces made of stainless material come with budget-friendly price tags.
Like a lot of other metals, however, stainless steel can lose luster over time and become dull-looking. But that doesn’t mean it’s destined for the trash bins when that happens as stainless steel jewelry can easily be restored using products readily available at home.
You can jump right in to the cleaning process with a basic soap and water treatment that could easily address dirt and dullness, and rid your jewelry of grime and pollutants. Just make sure you go with warm water and mild liquid soap. If you need to do further cleaning, there’s the ever trusty baking soda that works best mixed with water until you get a thick paste that you scrub on your jewelry with a toothbrush. In case you want to step up your game and make use of a jewelry cleaner, ensure that said cleaning agent is stainless steel-friendly so using it doesn’t result in more scratches.
As with every other cherished items, you can never go wrong caring for your stainless piece with tender loving care.
