Tarnished jewelry. OK, we exaggerate, but if you want your jewelry to really shine, it needs a good polish from time to time. Bring back the twinkle faster than you can say "Here's Johnny" with with nontoxic eco-methods.
- Avoiding horror-inducing chems. Some conventional jewelry cleaners contain ammonia, which is a lung irritant.
- Eco-gleam. Less body-harming chem production means less chance of those chems harming nature. Ammonia, for example, can be toxic to aquatic life.
- Effectiveness. These options shine things up like the pros.
- Purosol Jewelry Cleaning Kit - comes with a gem-cleaning spray and a microfiber cloth for extra glitter; cleans all types, including bone, resin, shell, and stone jewelry ($10).
- Homewood Metal Polish - lemon oil and mineral formula helps scrub away tarnish on almost any metal ($6).
- DIY Bite: Use a soft toothbrush and (non-ammonia) eco-window cleaner to polish gems, or a soft toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste for metal. Wipe off any residue with a damp cloth.
