Thanks for choosing to improve the life and quality of your Your Moon Phase Jewelry Piece. We decided to create a page to inform you of the benefits of stainless steel jewelry and how to preserve its' quality.
Why Stainless Steel is the best
The health benefit is it's hypoallergenic. This is a great choice for all those who have sensitive skin to certain metals.
This will not turn your skin green or any other color. Unlike many other metals, these are safe to wear and no harm will come if you wear stainless steel for life.
Stainless steel does not tarnish, rust or fade. It's also pretty durable and scratch proof. Stainless steel also looks like real silver or gold.
How to Keep your Stainless Steel to Last a Lifetime
Avoid harsh chemicals. Bleach and chlorine can damage the surface of stainless steel metal, therefore, we recommend you remove any jewelry before swimming in chlorinated pools. If you choose to go with a jewelry cleaner, make sure that it is safe to use on stainless steel metals, as some cleaners can be abrasive and scratch steel. Avoid storing your jewelry with other sharp objects or jewelry as this could scratch it instead of store your stainless steel jewelry separately in a fabric-lined box or cloth pouch. Regular clean-up of your stainless steel jewelry will not only prolong the life but will keep your piece looking shiny and lustrous for a long time.
Stainless Steel Care Instructions
Like many other metals, stainless steel can get scratched and lose it's luster, therefore becoming dull. However, this does not mean you throw out your stainless steel jewelry since restoring it is easy to do and can be done right at home.
1. Soap and Water
The simplest way to clean your stainless steel jewelry is with a bit of soap and water when it's dull and dirty. This helps clean off any pollutants and grime on your jewelry. Remember to please use a mild liquid soup and warm water.
Soak the stainless jewelry in a bowl containing a mixture of mild soap and warm water and let sit for a few minutes. Next, take a soft cloth and rub the jewelry. For hard to reach areas, like grooves or engravings, you can use a soft-bristled toothbrush that will ensure you reach those hard to get places. Once you've thoroughly cleaned off your jewelry, reassure you've dried your piece with another lint-free cloth to remove all possibilities of water spots.
2. Baking Soda
Believe it or not, baking soda is a great cleaner for stainless steel jewelry. Making a thick paste of baking soda mixed with water, use a toothbrush to slowly clean your jewelry. Once you've cleaned it thoroughly take a lint-cloth to dry your piece an ensure it's completely dry. (YouTube has many videos that show how to do this)
3. Gel Tooth Paste
This was another method that many people swear by to clean their jewelry among many other things. As this may be an okay method, it is pertinent that you are careful of the type of toothpaste you use. Stay away from any kind of toothpaste that has whitening agents as they can be abrasive and harsh. The toothbrush ensures those hard to reach areas of your stainless jewelry piece are squeaky clean.
