The Baribault Method is perfect for real gemstones and gold jewelry of any color. It is not ideal for pearls, opal, emeralds, silver, or fashion jewelry that is not gold. Use this method for your fine jewelry!
Heat up warm water in a small bowl, and add some Windex until the water becomes light blue. Add a few drops of Dawn Liquid Soap to the mixture, and you’re ready to go!
Place your fine jewelry into the solution! Remember, this method is ideal for gold, diamonds, and other fine gemstone jewelry. It is not ideal for silver, pearls, or opal.
This gentle solution won’t hurt your fine jewelry, so you can let it soak anywhere from 10 minutes for a quick shine to overnight for a deeper clean.
You’ll need a sink with a drain that can close, to make sure no jewelry escapes down the pipes. Gather a hand towel, a soft bristle toothbrush, and your bowl of jewelry.
Dip the soft bristle toothbrush into the solution, and use it to scrub each piece of jewelry, one by one. Make sure you get into every crevice, prong, and engraving for a deep clean.
With your drain closed, rinse each piece of jewelry with cold water. Then, lay them all on a hand towel, and fold it over to pat them dry. Your jewelry is sparkling like new!
