BRASS JEWELRY CARE
Brass is a great alternative to gold plating. It tends to look like real gold when polished. Brass doesn't wear away but however, it tarnishes with time.
To keep the shine, you would need to polish/clean it. Here are some natural DIY options on how to:
1. Warm Water & Soap
Mix warm water and a little soap. Gently clean your jewelry using a piece of cloth or soft brush dipped in the soapy water. Once done, rinse off with clean running water. Pat dry with a cloth.
2. Lemon Juice
Mix in a container a cup of water, half a lemon juice and teaspoon of salt. Place your jewelry in the mixture and remove it once clean. Wash off and dry it.
3. Salted Lemon
Cut a lemon into half and sprinkle salt on one of the halves. Rub it off your jewelry. You can also use a soft brush or piece of cloth to rub off the lemon juice on your jewelry. Wash and dry the jewelry.
4. Vinegar, Salt, and Flour
Mix 1 teaspoon of salt into ½ cup of vinegar. Add flour to make a paste. Rub into the brass and leave for around 10 minutes. Rinse with warm water and dry completely.
5. Lemon Juice & Baking Soda
Mix lemon juice and baking soda to form a paste. Rub the paste on your jewelry using a cloth. Lastly, rinse off with water and pat dry.
