Don't Wash Dishes or do Laundry with Your Jewelry on
Many cleaning products that come in contact with your beautiful jewelry that can take off the finish. Why? Because of the harsh chemicals.
Don't Wear Jewelry In Pool or at the Spa
Chlorinated water can react with the metals found in jewelry causing your awesome bangle or necklace to change color.
Don't Use Jewelry Cleaner
Cleaner made for silver, gold, or platinum is way too harsh for fashion jewelry which is usually plated with these precious metals.
Don't Put on Lotion or Perfume with your Jewelry on
For the same reasons listed above, lotions and perfumes that are not 100% natural can react unfavorably with your jewelry.
Basically, keep your jewelry away from the following:
- dishwashing soap
- silver cleaner
- other harsh chemicals Keep Your Jewelry Secure
Store your jewelry in a jewelry box or other secure container that will prevent your baubles from moving around. You can also store your jewelry in a silk or velvet pouch and put each pouch in a decorative shoe box.
Use Anti-tarnish Paper
When storing your fashion jewelry try wrapping each piece in anti-tarnish paper. If you don't have anti-tarnish paper use an eyeglass cloth instead!
