Jewelry Care Tips

Jewelry Care on maintaining brass jewelry is quite an easy task as this can be cleaned with everyday household items.

Wiping the jewelry with a soft cloth (micro fiber cloth) after every use keeps the jewelry from discoloration. However any discoloration can be removed by the following methods. Always keep a soft cloth and a soft bristled toothbrush handy for cleaning.

1) Run under hot water and keep brushing the tarnished areas with the brush. Dab dry with soft cloth

2) Dip toothbrush in lemon juice solution. Scrub the jewelry lightly. The acid in the lemon removes discoloration and brightens the piece. Rinse under water and dab dry with soft cloth.

3) Use regular white toothpaste ( containing fluoride) to just rub over smaller jewellery with your finger tips. Rinse under water and dab dry with soft cloth. This gives a shine to the jewellery as well.

4) Pitambari powder ( available in Indian markets) can also be used for maintaining brass jewellery. Follow instructions on the packet.

5) Bhasmam/ Vibhuti/ Ashes can also be used for a quick clean. Just rub over smaller jewellery with your finger tips. Rinse under water and dab dry with soft cloth. This gives a shine to the jewellery as well.
