Get your Jewelry clean with fresh Lemons
Seabound is a sustainable Jewelry brand, so every aspect and detail is watched carefully, manufacturing, selling, buying from suppliers or any thing else. When Jewelry has been soldered, there is oxidation on top afterwards. Usually, this is taken off by putting the Jewelry in some kind of acid, for example sulfuric acid.
Sulfuric acid is one of the strongest acids, can damage the skin, destroy living texture and in water it is poisonous for fish and other living creatures.
Just to get the Jewelry clean again.
Fortunately, there is a really simple and 100 % ecofriendly alternative, which is -lemon juice! So easy, yet so effective.
So, if you want to get your jewelry nice & clean again, you can use this secret at home too.
Just squeeze one or two organic lemons or lime into a small pot, heat it up with your jewelry inside (if there are stones in your jewelry, I recommend putting it into the hot juice after taking off the stove) and when starting to boil, take it off the stove immediately. Cover it up and leave it for about an hour. If necessary, repeat and leave the jewelry inside over night. Your jewelry should be nice and clean again afterwards. If it has a matte finish, you can afterwards finish it by use the reverse side of a sponge, for a more shiny finish, polish your jewel with a cloth, leather works good for example. You can save the juice for later if you want, I always put it in a jar in the fridge and use it several times.
Sustainable alternatives can be so easy.
