You change your clothes every day. 

And your washing machine takes care of them. 

When they come out, they are clean as day one. 

What about your jewelry? 

You wear jewelry every day but they don’t get cleaned as often. 

Your jewelry is a hard-working player. 

Makeup, perfumes, and deodorants are not beneficial for your pieces. 

When you add the dust and oil they receive every day, it is normal that they will get dull and dirty. 

But, the show must go on! 

There are commercial solutions to this problem. 

The simple way is to go to a jewelry shop and leave it to professionals. 

Jewelry cleaning is a common service offered all around by shops. 

In this way, you may expect to get a professional service with a guarantee. 

Make sure to always check with the service provider before you give your pieces. 

This is probably the best choice for rare and expensive items like antiques and family heritage. 

Another category to leave to professionals may be heavily tarnished jewelry. 

Of course, there is going to be a price for these services. 

And you’ll have to reach into your pocket every time you want your jewelry cleaned. 

Thankfully, there are other ways, which will save you time and money. 

Another method for jewelry cleaning is buying an ultrasonic machine for home use. 

An ultrasonic cleaner is a simple yet effective device. 

It generates high-frequency ultrasonic waves, which creates oscillations and bubbles in the cleaning solution. 

These waves and bubbles make the oil and dirt loose and clean your jewelry thanks to cavitation. 

This usually takes no more than 5 minutes, and your pieces are shiny like you want them to be. 

By getting yourself an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner, you only pay once. 

You save all the service fees and gas prices to store and back. 

As a result, you get the freedom to clean as many pieces as you want, whenever you want at the comfort of your home! 

Unfortunately, an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner is not the ultimate cleaning machine that takes care of anything and everything. 

There are many pieces that you should not put in an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner.

Ultrasonic cleaners do not play well with heat-treated, loose and soft stones. 

Stones like a pearl, ivory, coral are too soft for ultrasonic cleaning. 

Damaged stones or gems with cracks are also not suitable for ultrasonic jewelry cleaners. 

Ultrasonic cleaners can’t clean tarnished silver pieces. 

But you can step in and team up with your ultrasonic cleaner! 

You can be Batman and leave the 5-minute repetitive work to your ultrasonic Robin! 

In the movie, Batman had much good stuff inside his cave. 

And you have many items at your reach in your home to clean jewelry. 

Vinegar, lemon, ketchup, soap and baking soda are the first that come to mind.
