If you have any gold or silver jewelry, then you don’t need me to tell you that it can become extremely tarnished in a short amount of time. Over the years, I’ve spent tons of money on specialty jewelry cleaners and have even gotten my jewelry professionally cleaned. However, this genius hack will eliminate the need for both of those things!

Karyn Powers took to Facebook to share DIY method of cleaning her jewelry. With only a few simple ingredients, it’s not surprising that Karyn’s post has nearly 900,000 shares!

To make Karyn’s DIY jewelry cleaning solution, you will need:

1 tablespoon of salt

1 tablespoon of baking soda

1 tablespoon of liquid dish detergent

1 cup of water

1 piece of aluminum foil


Step 1: Heat the water in the microwave for one to two minutes.

Step 2: Cut a piece of aluminum foil big enough to roughly cover the bottom of a small bowl.

Step 3: Pour the hot water into the bowl. Add in the salt, baking soda, and dish detergent.

Step 4: Place the jewelry on top of the foil and let it sit for five to ten minutes. When the time is up, rinse the jewelry with cool water and dry it completely using a soft cloth.

And that’s it! Karyn explains that this hack works well for gold-filled, brass, German silver, and stirling silver jewelry. Thanks, Karyn, for sharing this great tip!
