Caring for your Jewellery - The polishing cloth
Updated: Aug 9, 2019
Welcome to our new series on how to care for your jewellery. We hope that by the end of the series you know a little more about caring for your favourite accent piece.
How many of you have had this scenario before?
You are getting ready to head out for the night. You are ready to accessorize your outfit. You pick up your favourite chain or ring or bracelet to put it on and head out the door but when you look down at it you say wait this could use a little sprucing up? Then you think, hey I don’t have enough time to go to the jeweller for a cleaning so what do you do? You start to think of all the little hacks people tell you about but you say to yourself, I really don’t have the time. Well a great affordable option is a polishing cloth and it doesn’t take a lot of time to use.
There are two basic types of polishing cloths, treated and untreated. Untreated polishing cloths are those that don’t have any chemicals added to them and are usually made from cotton. Treated cloths have some polish and anti-tarnish agents added to them. Of course since there is an anti-tarnish agent in the cloth the jewellery tends not to tarnish for some time so the shine lasts a bit longer than the untreated cloth.
Polishing cloths are quick and effective and only require a little bit of elbow grease to get the jewellery shining again. They will not put the same shine as taking your jewellery to the shop but they will certainly give your jewellery a little sparkle in a hurry.
