How to Clean Jewelry

Brighten gold and gems

Ever look under your ring? Lotion, soaps, and everyday dirt can clog the prongs, making stones appear facetless and flat. Even gold chains and pendants can get gunked up through everyday wear. Give gold a bubble bath by pouring a few drops of mild dish soap into a small bowl of sodiumfree seltzer water or club soda (in Good Housekeeping Research Institute tests, the carbonation loosened soil and removed debris). Put the jewelry into a small strainer, and place it in the bowl to soak for about five minutes. Swish it around, fishing out each piece to go over settings and crevices with a soft toothbrush. Return items to the strainer and rinse under running water; dry with a soft cloth. For costume jewelry, especially if stones are glued rather than set, dab a cloth into the bubbly solution and gently wipe any smudges or grime, then rinse with a cloth dampened in plain water. Pat dry and lay the pieces upside down so moisture wont soak into the setting.

We can use[ object + infinitive ] after help.
    Can you help me to find my ring?
In an informal style, we often use the infinitive without to.
    Can you help me find my ring?
    Help me get him to bed.
We can also use [help + infinitive] without an object.
    Would you like to help peel the potatoes?
