If you’ve noticed that your signature necklace is looking a little dull or the band of your favorite ring is starting to tarnish, it might be time to give your jewelry a little TLC. Having show-stopping bling is great and all, but when you don’t take care of it, it can start to lose its wow factor. You don’t need to run over to your jewelry store to see if they can clean it for you. All you need is the Internet, a jewelry cleaning cloth and a little bit of elbow grease to get your jewelry sparkling again.
We rounded up the best oversized premium jewelry cleaning cloths to help you make your jewelry shine and gleam again. These large cloths, which are usually at least 11 in. by 14 in., have two layers. The inner layer is for scrubbing away the tarnish and scratches your jewelry might have acquired from being worn out in the wild. The inner layer is imbued with some chemicals to help make the tarnish wipe right off. The outer layer is meant for polishing and shining up your jewelry. Jewelry cleaning cloths can be used on a wide variety of metals and gems, so you can polish your expensive ring right next to the costume jewelry you got from a thrift shop.
With a jewelry cleaning cloth, you won’t have dull-looking accessories again.
