Add all of your jewelry that needs cleaning and let it soak for 15 minutes.

Step 3: Brush up
Brush gently with the toothbrush around any recessed or detailed areas until each piece is clean.

Step 4: Rinse
Rinse the jewelry in a bowl of clean, warm water to remove any residue.

Dry and buff your jewelry with the soft, lint-free cloth until its luster returns.
