- She said her technique was recommended to her by her jeweler

A woman has revealed the cheap and simple cleaning solution that makes her jewelry sparkle after she has asked a jeweler for cleaning advice.
Posting in the Australian Facebook group Mums, which is Clean, the woman shared her four-ingredient solution and said it was recommended by her jeweler after a recent cleanup.
All that is needed is Cloudy Ammonia ($ 2 per liter from the supermarket), washing-up liquid, a baby brush (softer than a regular toothbrush) and a bowl of lukewarm water.

Posting in the Mums that Clean Group on Facebook shared a woman step by step guide should show how she made her rings sparkle again
& # 39; Add a small dash of detergent and a cap full of cloudy ammonia to a bowl of water and swirl to mix, & # 39; she wrote next to the snap fasteners of her rings.
She then advised soaking the jewelry in the bowl for 30 seconds before using the baby toothbrush to thoroughly scrub each piece – even in the often-forgotten & # 39; hidden holes & # 39; where dirt accumulates.
& # 39; Rinse under water at the same temperature (drastic changes in temperature can cause valuable stones to burst) and dry with a towel or paper towel, whatever you have, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; You can also choose to use a cleaning cloth afterwards, but I don't usually do that. & # 39;

Other group members shared their own tricks for returning the sparkle to beloved pieces – including the use of Windex and hot water.
& # 39; Ladies just don't put your pearls in a cleaning solution & # 39 ;, a woman said.
& # 39; The paper towel works like a bit of an abrasive cloth to make them shine & # 39 ;, another added.
& # 39; I was instructed to check the water before I threw it into the sink because diamonds or stones fell out during cleaning. & # 39;
