JEWELRY CLEANER FROM MILLIE THE JEWELER.

My dear friend, Millie, makes jewelry using natural stones and minerals wrapped with silver.  Anyone who works with or loves silver knows you need a good cleaner because it tarnishes very easily. 
 
 

Two pieces of Millie's beautiful work and stones.
 
This jewelry cleaner is the fastest and easiest cleaner that Millie has found.  It also has the advantage of being homemade, inexpensive, and there are no harsh chemicals in it. 


MILLIE’S JEWELRY CLEANER

¼ c water softener, Calgon laundry boost
2 T salt
2 c water 

Glass dish, Pyrex works well
Sheet of aluminum foil
 


Supplies needed:  Water softener, salt, water, and aluminum foil.
 


Place a piece of aluminum foil in the bottom of a glass dish.  Millie says it doesn't matter if it is shiny side or dull side up.  Measure into the aluminum foil lined dish the water softener and the salt.  Add water and mix well.  Drop in jewelry, must touch aluminum foil.  Swish and pull out.  Rinse and blow dry.  Use no heat on turquoise.


Put a piece of aluminum foil in the bottom of a glass pan.
 
 

Measure water softener and salt.  Put onto the foil.
 
 

 Pour in water and stir to mix.  Drop jewelry into solution.  It must touch aluminum foil.  Swish it around in solution.  Take jewelry out of solution and rinse well.  Dry.
