I am looking for a safe, homemade cleaner for cleaning diamond jewelry.
By Darlene from Castaic, CA
I always use baking soda and a toothbrush. Hope this helps.
My Mom always soaked hers in ammonia, worked like a charm, can use a 50/50 but use distilled water as tap will leave a film. Try windex or rubbing alcohol, though someone once mentioned vodka, but I'm not going to waste my vodka!
I use toothpaste. Use the paste and not the gel. I works great for me.
My neighbor who worked in a jewelry store told me to just use amonia. It works!
The baking soda may not scratch your diamond but will probably scratch the gold they're in. Ammonia and distilled water is the best I've used.
Whatever you do, don't use Stanley Foam Glass Cleaner on it! I sprayed a little foam on my ring while a took a shower and then rinsed it. The shine cam off my diamonds and one fell out! I totally ruined my anniversary band and it broke my heart.
