Jewelries such as those made of metal and gems are shiny and sparkly when new. They can easily add a touch of glamor to any outfit. However, if you always wear them and you don’t clean them periodically, these pieces will gradually lose a lot of luster and shine. Cleaning your precious items by hand can take forever, but for some reason, you can’t bring back their old sparkle. You can take them to a jewelry shop and get cleaned by a professional cleaner, but it can get costly and time-consuming.
Using a jewelry cleaner, like a steam cleaner, can offer a quick, easy and safe way to clean and polish your jewelries. It’s a portable cleaning machine that can be used both for professional and home use. After a few minutes, your jewelry can look as good as new.
Jewelry steam cleaning, by all means, makes use of steam in order to clean. It’s an environmentally-safe solution, since you don’t need any chemicals – just plain water. You just need to pour tap water into the tank of the steam cleaner. The device will boil the water using its internal heating element, then once it’s ready, you simply place the jewelries into the cleaning bin. The blast of pressurized steam would remove the dirt, grime and debris from your jewelry pieces. Once done, simply remove the jewelry and allow it to dry for a few minutes.
However, not all jewelries are suitable for this type of cleaner. For instance, some porous gemstones such as pearls, opals and amber can be damaged by steam in the long run. Also, other types of jewelries like those made of glass might get broken, and those that are glued should also be kept away, since glue can be weakened by steam.
But if you own a lot of jewelries other than those examples from above, investing in a steam cleaner is a good idea. To make the most out of your investment, you can use it as a business opportunity, and let others know that you can clean their jewelries for a fee.
Here are some of the best jewelry steam cleaners you can find:
