Texture & Scent:

Check out how shiny my newly-cleaned bangles look on the right!! <3

This jewellery cleaner is quite runny, so be careful when you pour it out of the bottle. This foams up a little when you brush / scrub it against your jewellery, but it rinses out quickly and easily.

This has a very strong chemical scent that i don't like! >.<

Packaging:


This comes in a fuss-free plastic bottle. The dispensing hole is huge though, so becareful when you pour the solution out:




Price & Availability:
This product is priced at RM12.50 but it goes on sale often (I got mine for RM9.50 or something). It's available solely at Cosway outlets. Click here to find a stockist near you.

Directions:
Soak jewellery for at least 10 minutes. Longer soaking time and light brushing are required for difficult stains and larger items. I used an old toothbrush to scrub them, but i guess a polishing cloth works too! :)


Another sneak peak - see how shiny they are?? :D :D

Rinse thoroughly under running water and dry with a clean cloth. Solution can be reused. Discard solution when it turns murky.

CAUTION: DO NOT USE on aluminium and porous jewellery like pearls, amber, opals, corals, lapis lazuli and jewellery with water soluble glue or fixings. If in doubt, do a spot test first. Dab the solution onto a hidden area and wait for 5-10 minutes. Keep out reach of children.


My $0.02:

Mums really know best!! I was complaining to my mum that I had no choice but to throw away all my costume jewellery because they've all oxidized and tarnished like crazy when she suggested that I gave this product a whirl and see if it helps remove the darkened stuff on my jewellery or not. I'm sooo glad that I did because it really works!! :D

Talk is cheap so i'll show you pictures to prove it! :D

2 of my necklaces - tarnished and ugly! :(



After soaking and cleaning with this solution:



A side by size cloze up so you can see the difference clearer:



Once I found out that this actually works, i spent several hours cleaning every single jewellery i have, and this worked beautifully for all of them!! Now I have my full range of stuff to accessorize my outfits with again! I'm beyond happy!! Thanks mum for helping me save hundreds of ringgit!! :D :D

  8. That's just $4? I can't believe how clean the jewellery is after soaking it in the solution.

  9. I think that solution is quite strong. Can it clean some sensitive metals like rose golds?
