From pendants to wedding rings, stainless-steel jewelry has a lot going for it. It's handsome--it resembles platinum, but it's much stronger and less expensive. It's not prone to rust or tarnish, and it's easy to clean. Here's how to keep stainless-steel jewelry looking its best.
Keep your stainless-steel jewelry free of dust and dirt. With a soft cloth, gently rub on a little warm, soapy water (dish-washing detergent is fine). Follow the grain of the stainless steel to avoid scratches. Next, apply plain warm water with a cloth, or dip your piece in the water. Gently wipe dry with another soft cloth.
To clean grimier stainless-steel pieces, use a soft cloth to apply toothpaste--again following the grain of the steel. You want plain white toothpaste that doesn't contain silica. Use a soft toothbrush to reach any etched areas. Afterward, apply plain warm water with a cloth, or dip your piece in the water. You may need to use a clean toothbrush to remove remaining toothpaste. Gently wipe dry with another soft cloth.
Polish your jewelry with a nontoxic stainless steel polish or polishing cloth--both are available in jewelry stores and online. Avoid abrasive cleaners that can scratch the surface.
