Jewellery Hacks And Tips To Help Your Accessories Last Longer

jewellery hacks and tips
Accessories are like the icing on the cake for your outfits. They can take you from drab to fab in an instant so it’s kinda important you give them the same ”respect” as your clothes.

And you don’t necessarily have to spend tons of money on expensive jewellery to look great. Let’s show you how to make your regular costume jewellery last long with these hacks and tips.

1. Keep perfumes and sweat far from your jewellery

Don’t spray perfume directly on or close to areas where you have jewellery on.┬áThe chemicals contained in them can cause them to fade or turn green. And the salt secreted in your sweat will also mess them up so take off all jewellery if you’re sweating excessively.

2. You can untangle knotted necklaces with oil and a pin

It can be really annoying when your necklace gets all tangled up. But if it does, here’s what to do: simply apply some oil all over the necklace, then using a pin, gently pull the knots apart. It’ll untangle pretty easily.

3. Clean your jewellery using beer and ketchup

Beer is a pretty good cleanser for gold plated jewellery. While ketchup is great for cleaning silver accessories. Simply sprinkle some beer on a cloth and wipe your gold accessories with it. They’ll come out clean. For silver, switch the cloth for an old toothbrush. Add some ketchup and brush those accessories squeaky clean!

4. Store necklaces in a straw to prevent them from getting tangled

This is great for when you are travelling and it is really easy to do. Simply pass one end of the necklace through a straw and hook both ends together. Voila! Problem solved.
