Here are a few things to avoid when you are cleaning your loved pieces.
- Try not to expose your jewellery to everyday chemicals such as hair products, cosmetics, perfumes, or direct sunlight, as they are likely to damage them. - Keep them away from vinegar, lemon and acidic foods as well.
- Avoid getting beaded or threaded pearl jewellery wet, they may lose their sheen. Simply wipe them with a soft damp cloth if they are exposed to cosmetics or perfume.
- Avoid using abrasive cleaners on jewellery. The chemicals in these cleaner are extremely harsh - and are likely to strip the metals. Use them only for silver and gold - and only when it is necessary since they aren’t always the best solution.
- Don’t use silver dip cleaners on gold jewellery. Make use of jewellery cleaners intended solely for the purpose of cleaning gold.
