If you have a dirty ring or jewellery including gold, soak overnight in the soft drink 7up or Coca Cola - but 7up is the best. It will come out sparkling. Leave longer and change liquid if very dirty. You will be amazed at the result, and it is safe.

Use toothpaste and a toothbrush. Works better than jewelry cleaner!.

The safest way to clean your gold or silver jewelry is with and sonic jewelry cleaner. The old toothpaste and toothbrush trick is much too abrasive for both gold and silver. It also helps to use the tarnish free cloth bags for storage or to use the strips of paper that reduce tarnish in your storage areas..

Soak your jewelry in effervescent tablets used to soak dentures in!! The jewelry gets clean & sparkles!!.

I find the vinegar method works the most my mum does metal detecting and found a ring she soaked it in vinegar and the next day it was sparkling !!!!!!

What i tend to do with most of my gold and silver jewelery is to get soft toilet tissue and put your jewelry into it whilst adding, Imperial Leather talc on powder, do this before you go bed about twice a week. (remember to leave it in over night)

The best way I find is to soak gold jewellery in boiling water with a little shampoo for about 10 minutes. Then scrub very gently with a soft toothbrush, rinse with cold water and leave to dry on a piece of kitchen towell or toilet paper. I have been doing this for years and my jewellery is sparkling.
