Cheap Jewelry Cleaner

I was shopping for jewelry cleaner one day and a lady saw me and said "don't waste your money on that cleaner". She told me to use ammonia straight out of the bottle. (This costs $1.00 at the Dollar Store and lasts for years). I was amazed when I tried it.


I put ammonia and jewelry in a coffee cup for very short time, rinse, and rub with towel or soft cloth. I also use a toothbrush to get in the crevices. The shine is unbelievable. I haven't bought jewelry cleaner in years.

I use the blue window cleaner, Windex, which contains ammonia. Works just fine.

I use a combo of ammonia and dish washing detergent.

This is certainly a great tip. I will be definitely using this in the future.

Be careful however with pearl jewelry, as ammonia can harm it.

A neighbor who worked in a jewelry store told me this years ago. The post about pearls is correct though. Use ammonia only for metal and gemstones.

You can use white(not gel type) toothpaste as jewelry cleaner. Put a little on an old soft toothbrush, brush well and rinse with water. Do not use on pearl or opal jewelry.
