Second, after mixing both together place the jewelry in the mixture for a few seconds.
3. Remove, then take a dry clean cloth and buff out any spots.
4. Let jewelry dry and put away.
Keep in mind that this method is best for mild stains, tarnish, or general wear-and-tear, like those you'd find when cleaning sterling silver. However, this method won't be strong enough for major spots, rust, or buildup.

2. Bubble it up with Baking Soda
Not in the right mood to scrub it up manually. Let baking soda do the work for you. Both baking soda is not only good for heartburn. It causes a chemical reaction when mixed with water. Which, when you introduce the jewelry and baking soda the reaction produces bubbles and fizz that attack the buildup.  Simply place your jewelry and an active ingredient in a bowl, cover with water. Then you will soak the jewelry only for a few minutes, remove and wipe dry. Always dry before putting it away. This method is best as a diamond ring cleaner, silver jewelry cleaner, or gold jewelry cleaner.

Hot water is one of the cheapest and easiest cleaning solutions for hard metal jewelry. When the water hits a certain level the steam and heat will cause dirt and debris to loosen. Therefore making it easy to wipe away. Simply place jewelry in a heatproof container, then slowly pour boiling water over it until covered. Let the jewelry cool completely. After removing from the bowl using a clean cloth wipe away the dirt way. Always dry before putting away. When cleaning pearls, opals, and many other gemstones this method will not work.
