Shopping For Better Shoes

When it comes to shoe shopping, I have always been one of those people that goes crazy in the stores. I absolutely love finding a great shoe that will work for my style, and when the price is right, I just have to invest. About three months ago or so, I realized that there were some issues with my current shoe selection, and it really paid off. I started looking for higher quality shoes, and before I knew it, I had a few pairs of great shoes that I really loved having. This blog is all about choosing higher quality shoes and being able to wear them for as long as possible.

Easy Home Recipes For Cleaning Jewelry


Cleaning your jewelry doesn't always mean you have to go to the store to get a fancy bottle of expensive cleaner. You can clean your jewelry at home with very inexpensive items, some of which you may already have in your bathroom or kitchen. Let us take a look at some of the best ways you can clean your jewelry quickly and inexpensively.

The Aluminum Foil Wash

This formula is great for cleaning gold-filled, nickel, and sterling silver jewelry.

  1. Heat some water in a microwave or on a stove.
  2. Tear off a piece of aluminum foil, and use it to line the bottom of a small bowl.
  3. Pour hot water into the bowl.
  4. Pour a tablespoon each of salt and baking soda and a teaspoon of dish washing liquid into the bowl.
  5. Allow the jewelry to sit in the solution for at least ten minutes.
  6. Rinse off the jewelry in some cold water.
  7. Use a soft, lint-free cloth to wipe the jewelry clean.

Give Your Diamonds Back Their Sparkle

If the diamonds in your rings or earrings have lost their sparkle, use denture cleaning tablets to bring back the glow.

Here is how you should use the denture cleaner:

  1. Fill a glass with water.
  2. Drop a denture tablet into it.
  3. Place the ring or earrings into the water.
  4. Let the jewelry sit for a few minutes.
  5. Remove the jewelry, and wipe the diamonds clean with a lint-free cloth.

Easy Ketchup Silver Cleaner

The tomato ketchup that you use at home to give your meals an extra flavor can also double as a jewelry cleaner for silver. If your jewelry is smooth, simply dunk it into some tomato ketchup, and leave it for a few minutes. Wash it clean with some water, and dry it with a soft cloth.

If the jewelry you are cleaning has grooves or a detailed surface, then you should work the ketchup in these areas with a toothbrush. Let the ketchup sit for a few minutes, and then rinse the jewelry clean under running water.

Cleaning your jewelry with the recipes given above is easy and inexpensive. There are no harsh ingredients to worry about that may irritate your skin or cause you to breathe in unhealthy fumes while cleaning your jewelry. Your silver, diamonds, and gold-filled jewelry will look as good as new, and you will save a lot of money.
