Stainless steel jewelry is made from a steel allow containing chromium. It will not corrode or rust and is very durable. However, this type of steel can get scratched and stained, which is why you should follow some simple advice to keep it in excellent condition.
Cleaning Stainless Steel Jewelry
- Pour warm water in a small bowl, add a small amount of mild dishwashing soap.
- Dip a soft, lint-free cloth in the water, and carefully wipe the stainless steel jewelry with the damp cloth clean. Be sure to rub the item along its polish lines.
- Wipe the remainder of soap off using a moist cloth dipped in clean water.
- Dry the jewelry well with a clean towel, and then leave it to air dry.
Once it’s clean, you can use a jewelry polish or a polishing cloth to shine it.
An alternative is to purchase a stainless steel cleaner and follow the instructions on the package. You can also buy a regular jewelry cleaner that can be used on stainless steel.
Storing Stainless Steel Jewelry
While stainless steel jewelry doesn’t tarnish or corrode, it can scratch.
That’s why you should store your pieces in a way that minimizes contact with other items that can damage it.
If your jewelry does get scratched, you can have it professionally polished by a jeweler.
