How to Clean Stainless Steel Jewelry

Over time, fashion has become essential, apart from being dressed well. Jewelry was something that only women were fond of previously, but things have certainly changed, and there is no gender bias in today’s world. Even a man would look amazing and get appreciated if he manifests his stainless steel jewelry.

Some dainty pieces can elevate our look and make us look different in the crowd. But these pieces can get tarnished or lose their shine. With proper care and precautions, we can make our stainless steel pieces last for a prolonged period and look sassy every time we wear them.

Steps to Cleaning Stainless Steel Jewelry

Liquid Soap & Water

Take a bowl of hot water and pour some liquid soap into it. Create a concoction, and after a couple of minutes, you will see the mixture has become foamy. Put your tarnished jewelry in it for 10 mins. After ten minutes, use a dampened towel or a toothbrush to scrub the jewelry gently, and it gets back its shine. Make sure to dry the jewelry properly after

Baking Soda & Lemon Juice

Add 2-3 tablespoons of baking soda and a tablespoon of lime juice in a bowl. Mix the contents well and form a smooth paste. Scrub your tarnished jewelry until the rusts come off using a toothbrush or damp towel. Within fifteen to twenty minutes, you will find that your piece has become as good as new. Dip your jewelry in a bowl full of normal water to remove the leftover particles of the scrub, and dry them out with a towel.

Baking Soda & White Vinegar

This method is helpful if you need to clean a batch of stainless steel jewelry. In a bowl of lukewarm water, create a mixture of baking soda and distilled white vinegar in a ratio of 1:2, respectively. Mix it well until baking soda gets combined with the liquids thoroughly. Put your jewelry pieces in them to rest for an hour (minimum). At last, rinse the pieces of jewelry with some clean water, and here we get our shiny pieces of jewelry.

Hand Sanitizer or Rubbing Alcohol

This step comes to play when you clean your stainless steel rings. Pour some drops of sanitizer into a paper towel and rub the jewelry gently. Later rinse your pieces using clean water and dry them using a paper towel or a dry cloth. Sanitizers have isopropyl or other alcohols, which can react with gemstones and cause corrosion, so make sure your jewelry piece does not have a solitaire attached.

Liquid Detergent & Aluminum Foil

Take a bowl and cover it up with aluminum foil. Put your pieces of jewelry in it. Pour some warm water over it. Add 2-3 tablespoons of liquid detergent to the bowl and let it sit for a quarter-hour until it gets its shine back. Subsequently, rinse the pieces with clean water and dry them using a damp towel.

Ammonia-Water Solution

Take a bowl of warm water and add one tablespoon of pure ammonia. Put your jewelry pieces in the mixture and submerge them for 10-15 minutes. Subsequently, clean the jewelry pieces with water and dry them properly. Make sure to use a small amount of ammonia, as too much can destroy the jewelry.

Olive Oil

Take a microfiber cloth and dip it in olive oil. Make sure you have a microfiber cloth, as these can clean the microparticles in cracks and crevices better than other fabrics that only remove dirt and grease from the surface. Rub the cloth gently against your stainless steel jewelry thoroughly. It is super easy and convenient, especially if you are out of time, because you will get the shine back within a few minutes.

Quick Heads on Keeping Your Stainless Steel Pieces Last

  • Keep your jewelry pieces in a dry place, away from heat. Doing so will increase the longevity of your belongings.
  • Clean your jewelry often to prevent it from getting tarnished easily. Do not mix your stainless steel pieces with other pieces of jewelry.
  • Wash your jewelry pieces with filtered water properly. So, there are no residues left.
  • Dry them up properly; so that no moisture lingers on the surface.
  • You can also store them in a velvet pouch and cover them up using anti-tarnishing paper.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much time does it take before a piece of stainless steel jewelry gets tarnished?
Ans. They do not get tarnished in a small period, but too much exposure to heat and moisture can make them lose their shine. Also, maintain them after wearing, as the moisture and salts from our sweat can reduce their luster.

How should we store them?
Ans. You should store your stainless steel pieces in a zip-lock bag. Alternatively, you can also keep them in a box. Keep your stainless steel pieces in a separate jewelry box away from your rose gold and sterling silver pieces. It will help your jewelry stay shiny for a more prolonged period.
