BREAKING NEWS! -- More and more, we get reports of hand sanitizer use damaging jewelry. Some large manufacturers have been forced to stop production due to gurantee abuse and those remaining are even voiding their warranties when hand sanitizer use is involved. High level problem areas include medical facilities, doctors offices, schools, and day care facilities. Best advice is to remove ANY jewelry before hand sanitizer use.
Fashion jewelry should be worn for special occasions. Fashion jewelry is the last thing that you put on before you leave the house and the first thing you take off when you come home. Your jewelry will then last a very long time and it will always look nice.
Keep your jewelry clean with a mixture of mild detergent and a little water. You can also use any jewelry cleaner that does not have any acids, ammonia, or abrasives. Rinse it well and dry thoroughly. You can also clean it with a polishing cloth.
DO NOT clean your rhodium-plated jewelry in chemical cleaners such as jewelry dips. Some sonic jewelry cleaners also use chemicals. It can wear the rhodium plating off more quickly.
Avoid rubbing your jewelry against surfaces. If you're going to be doing a lot of work with your hands, you'll want to remove your rings during that time. This goes for when you're doing tasks such as heavy cleaning and yard work.
