Susan asked: I would like to know what the best electronic jewelry cleaner on the market is. I metal detect and find lots of old coins, some as old as 1800, brass items, silver and copper. I would like to know if I should look for a cleaner that uses a special cleaner, or can I use something like vinegar and detergent. I would like to spend around or under $50.00. Would you be able to point me in the right direction?
Choosing an Electronic Jewelry Cleaner
An electronic jewelry cleaner can bring old jewelry back to life, keep new pieces in sparkling condition, or clean and restore a number of items including old coins, eyeglasses, and even CDs or DVDs. There are a number of models available, but even the least expensive can produce outstanding results.
If you’d like a model that cleans with plain water, eliminating the need for harsh and possibly expensive chemicals, consider the Sonic Wave Professional Ultrasonic Cleaner. It cleans with the power of 42,000 ultrasonic energy waves per second, making most items sparkle in just three minutes. Additionally, because it cleans with water, it’s gentle and safe for most objects. It’s highly rated by users and comes at an affordable price.
When you metal-detect as a hobby, you know it’s often hard to know what exactly you’ve found until you’ve cleaned it. Unfortunately, you can strip the value away with the dirt if you’re not careful. For this reason alone, an electronic jewelry cleaner that uses water is an excellent choice.
I have four corroded copper widow’s mite coins that are over 4,000 years old. How can I clean them so they are shiny again without scratching them?
I have dirt stuck inside gold bangles and earrings that is hard and dry; how do I remove it easily?
