- Hold Onto That Charm
So, precious jewelry is expensive to buy and comes with expensive maintenance. And every time you go to a jeweler, there’s a fear of deceit. We bring you a homemade hack to bring back that shine and sparkle.
For Silver Jewelry, place it on a tin foil shiny side up inside a ceramic bowl and fill with water, a teaspoon of baking powder, a teaspoon of salt and a dash of white vinegar. Place your silver jewelry in the mixture for 5 mins and VOILA (VOYLLA ?), the jewelry shine will return to its place.
*Do not clean Silver jewelry with gem stones in this mixture as it may damage them.
To clean Gold jewelry at home, mix few drops of mild detergent with club soda. Place your jewelry in the solution for 10-20 minutes. If needed, scrub away left overs with soft brush/toothbrush. Pat dry with a lint cloth.
- Clasp It Easy
I am proud to be living alone but when it comes to clasping a bracelet all alone, oh boy! I wish I lived with someone. To secure the clasp on a bracelet all by yourself can be really frustrating ?Just when you think you’ve won the war, one end of the darn thing slides off your wrist and you have to start all over again. YOU KNOW IT!
Here comes paper clip to the rescue! Thread the paper clip through the loop, hold the bracelet steady with the paper clip until you can fasten the clasp. DONE!
