Homemade jewelry cleaner - I have tried this and am so happy to say it cleaned even the most tarnished of pieces I had about given up on! Will never buy it in the store again!! (Instead of the foil thing, I used my Lasonic cleaning machine though and it was magic!)
Mix 1 c boiling water, 1 tbsp salt, and 1 tbsp baking soda. Slowly pour the mixture into the foil lined pan. Use a spoon to stir and reposition the jewelry. Then, slowly add the 1/2 c vinegar and watch it do its magic! Bubbles galore cleaning every crevice. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Use a spoon to stir the salt and baking soda, and to evenly distribute the jewelry. Rinse in water and dry.
