Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) August 23, 2006
For most women, finding the perfect piece of jewelry to accessorize an outfit can be more time consuming than choosing the outfit itself. AP9 Essentials, a leading membership discount program offered by Adaptive Marketing LLC, recommends regular jewelry cleanings to keep each piece looking polished as well as keeping you looking your best.
Millions of women are guilty at one time or another of cleaning the house, washing dishes, cooking and doing many other things that wreak havoc on jewelry. AP9 Essentials advises that jewelry should be considered an investment. Properly caring for your pieces will extend their wearable life as well as give that special touch of elegance to your wardrobe.
AP9 Essentials offers members-only discounts on jewelry, clothing, fashion accessories, personal care products and so much more. Members simply log on to DealPass to access their benefits. In addition to receiving up to 20% off of today’s fashion must-haves at nationally-known department and retail stores across the country, AP9 Essentials offers the following tips for easy jewelry clean up:
--Gold. Dip gold into a bowl of water and a small amount of dish soap. Rinse with warm water and buff with a clean cloth until shiny. Never use abrasive cleaners.
--Silver. Pour a small amount of silver-polishing on to a clean towel and smooth over silver. Rinse with warm water and pat dry with a clean towel. Never use abrasive cleaners, and never wear silver into a pool because the chlorine will damage the piece.
--Diamonds. For a quick shine, clean your diamond ring with toothpaste and a toothbrush. The toothbrush will allow you to get in between the prongs on your setting and the toothpaste will make your ring shine like your pearly whites. After cleaning, rinse the ring thoroughly under warm water and pat dry with a clean cloth.
--Pearls. Pearls can scratch easily so the best way to clean them is by using a mild soap and warm water. Dry them with a lint-free cloth and make sure they are completely dry before putting them away. Never use abrasive cleaners, household cleaning products containing ammonia, or harsh detergents.
--Check jewelry for loose stones before cleaning. Cleaning could dislodge an unfastened stone.
--Always remember to plug the sink while cleaning jewelry so the piece does not go down the drain.
