Whoa it was this easy?! We used to actually have someone clean it professionally whenever we feel like our jewelries were lacking a little luster. I didn’t know that you can easily do this at home with simple ingredients. Thank you for sharing!
Actually, I think you should take your jewelry to a professional if the spots are too old. I’ve tried some of these methods on my old jewels and it works, but doesn’t clean them spotless. If the jewels are newer, it works better. So yeah, if your jewels haven’t been worn for 2-3 years or more, you should take them to a professional.

Thank you for this recipe sweet friend! Definitely doing this tonight! My wedding rings are in need of a good cleaning!
Can I use this in costume jewelry?
I’m not sure, I think it would depend on the materials it’s made out of.
