Beer

For solid gold (excluding gemstones), pour a bit of beer onto a cloth or paper towel and rub it over the piece.  This will help your gold jewelry look brand spankin’ new.  Just remember NOT to use dark ale!

Since even some home products can have harsh chemicals, there are also more natural approaches to clean your jewelry! Check out our favorite natural jewelry cleaning solution:

Ingredients:

A clean, dry toothbrush
Witch hazel or white vinegar
Tea tree oil
Baking soda

This recipe is perfect to clean any high-quality jewelry or stones, so it is not recommended to use on any opals or softer stones.  Choose between witch hazel or white vinegar, but keep in mind the vinegar is much more acidic than the witch hazel.  Mix mixture together and let pieces sit overnight.  The next morningcoat piece with baking soda scrub with a dry, clean toothbrush.
