Clean Jewelry at Home

Scrub your good jewelry clean with an old toothbrush and some toothpaste. Rinse it clean in warm water and drop it into a small container of gin. Leave it for a coupe of hours or overnight. Jewelry sparkles as good as new. The gin can be kept in the freezer and used over and over.

Actually, toothpaste is the very worst thing you can use on jewelry. Our grandmothers used it, but their toothpaste was not abrasive in any way. Today's toothpaste is very abrasive, and over a period of time will scratch the metal beyond repair. I manufacture an ammonia free cleaner that is safe for all jewelry and when I demonstrate at trade shows, I see thousands of rings. Many of them are obviously "toothpaste rings" that I spot without having to ask. Reputable jewelers will tell you not to use toothpaste, so please be careful. I've seen the damage done.
