    Jewellery cleaner...any recomendations??

    Looking for something to clean silver jewellery. The tub of stuff I'm using is hopeless. I remember having great stuff years ago, but maybe they are not permitted to sell such strong stuff these days. i have wondered about these ultrasonic machines...soooo many on ebay....anyone recomend a good one please

    u can buy ultrasonic baths for alot less than than that, i paid about £40 for mine for when i was tattooing (secondhand), but you can get little personal jewelry cleaner ones for less thann £40. cant put anything with stones set in them in thow as it will vibrate them out of the setting. one like this one on ebay will do the trick 250819469001 its similar to what i have now and it works great

    Local jewellers sometimes have the sonic cleaners already mentioned so try around where you live,not sure how much they charge to clean your item for you. I have some silver cloths that's what I use.

    This works like a miracle and it's cheap.
    1. Line a large bowl or a small bucket with tinfoil with the shiny side facing outwards
    2. Place silver items into the foil-lined container
    3. Pour in hot water to cover the items that need to be cleaned
    4. Add baking soda to the water until it begins to fizz
    5. Allow the silver to soak for about half an hour
    6. Remove the silver from the water
    7. Rinse
    8. Dry

    well proper professional ones will be expensive!! the one we used in the studio was about £500 and it was tiny. but just for cleaning bits and bobs, may aswel get a small cheapish one.
