Is your costume jewelry dull?

2 months ago
last modified: 2 months ago

Imitation gold and silver earrings and necklaces and bracelets can be dulled from years of wear and exposure to makeup, body oils, and perfume. Wash it to a sparkling finish by soaking it in a jar of hot water and shampoo or Dawn. Agitate it a couple of times. Soak for several hours. Rinse well and dry on a couple of thickness of paper towel. Avoid soaking anything glued such as stones on pins and earrings as the soak could loosen the glue. And do not use shampoo with moisturizers which could dull the appearance of your costume jewelry with more oils.
