Lindi Harrison jewellery is handmade from start to finish, and requires delicate handling.
Like all jewellery, it will tarnish over time. To prevent this from happing sooner, and in order to keep your jewellery in it's best condition, store it individually in a cool and dry place, in an airtight sealed bag. With special love and care, your jewellery should last forever and continue to make you look beautiful every time you wear it. You can clean tarnished areas by using the methods listed below:
Plain water is a basic natural cleaner that used in conjunction with other natural cleaners is the safest way to clean. Soaking jewellery in warm water works to soften dirt and debris so that you can remove it with a soft bristled brush, such as a toothbrush, and rinse it away.
Baking soda is a versatile cleaner that can remove tarnish from silver jewelry. Buff tarnished items using a sponge or cloth dipped into a cleaner made of two tablespoons of water and a quarter cup of baking soda.
BAKING SODA AND VINEGAR
Vinegar is another versatile nature-based cleaner that when paired with baking soda, has the ability to clean and shine. For silver jewellery, dap baking soda over the area that needs cleaning, followed by vinegar. Once the cleaners stop reacting to one another, gently scrub and buff the items. Another cleaning solution comes from combining two tablespoons of baking soda with a half cup vinegar. Use this solution to soak and clean silver jewellery.
Natural cleaners are an inexpensive and effective way to clean and maintain both new and old jewellery items. The relatively low cost of using these types of cleaners makes them a desirable option as opposed to commercial cleaners. In addition, although not all natural cleaners are safe for the environment, there are many that are also considered environmentally friendly.
