The Ultimate Guide to Cleaning Your Jewelry with an Ultrasonic Cleaner

Remi and Sitara Jewelry | Sitara Recommends Remi Ultrasonic Cleaning Device!

Keeping your jewelry looking shiny and new can be a challenge, especially if you wear it often. Over time, your favorite pieces can accumulate dirt, grime, and even bacteria. Fortunately, an ultrasonic cleaner can make cleaning your jewelry quick and easy.

Ultrasonic cleaners use high-frequency sound waves to create tiny bubbles in a cleaning solution. These bubbles gently lift dirt and debris from your jewelry, leaving it clean and sparkling. If you're new to using an ultrasonic cleaner, this guide will walk you through the steps.

Choose the Right Cleaner

There are a variety of ultrasonic cleaners on the market, so it's important to choose the right one for your needs. Consider the size of your jewelry collection, as well as the types of materials you need to clean. You'll want to choose a cleaner with a tank size that can accommodate your largest pieces, and that is safe to use with the materials in your jewelry.

Gather Your Materials

In addition to your ultrasonic cleaner, you'll need a few other items to get started. You'll need tap or bottled water and ammonia as that is safe for use with your jewelry. Mix equal parts water and ammonia for your cleaning solution. You'll also need a soft-bristled brush for scrubbing stubborn grime.

Prep Your Jewelry

Cleaning your jewelry before using the ultrasonic cleaner

Before cleaning your jewelry, remove any loose stones or pieces that could get damaged in the ultrasonic cleaner. You should also inspect your jewelry for any loose or damaged parts, which could be further damaged during the cleaning process.

Add Cleaning Solution to the Cleaner

Fill your ultrasonic cleaner's tank with the cleaning solution, following the manufacturer's instructions for the recommended amount. Once the cleaning solution is in the tank, place your jewelry inside the basket or tray provided

Run the Ultrasonic Cleaner

Turn on the ultrasonic cleaner and let it run for the recommended amount of time. This is usually between three and eight minutes. During this time, the sound waves will create tiny bubbles that lift dirt and debris from your jewelry.

Scrub Stubborn Grime

After the cleaning cycle is complete, use a soft-bristled brush to scrub away any stubborn grime or dirt that remains. Be gentle and avoid using too much pressure, as this could scratch your jewelry.

Rinse and Dry

Remove your jewelry from the ultrasonic cleaner and rinse it thoroughly with warm water. Make sure all of the cleaning solution is rinsed away. Then, pat your jewelry dry with a soft cloth.
