How to Remove Dirt from Polymer Clay Jewelry
We love the jewelry we sell you, and we want it to look beautiful forever. Use these tips to keep your jewelry looking like you just bought it!
Polymer Clay is extremely durable, but it can get dirty just like every other type of jewelry. If you're like me: you like to wear cute earrings when you have makeup on. This tip is for you!
If your piece is "unfinished" (meaning it has no resin, paint, varnished, etc)
- Use a small soft cloth to wipe the dirt/makeup off of the surface. A cloth used to clean eye glasses works perfectly!
- Use a Q-tip with a bit of acetone (nail polish remover) and gently rub the surface of the earring.
If your piece has a resin finish:
- Since resin is a smooth and glass like surface, using a soft damp towel will work for removing dirt and fingerprints
- A cloth used for eye glasses works for this as well!
- Avoid direct contact with sunlight when not wearing resin pieces.
If your piece has a brass charm attached:
- Avoid wetting brass at all costs. This will cause it to tarnish very quickly.
- They don't generally get too dirty but if they do, a soft cloth will do the trick
- If needed a bit of Brasso can clean and bring out the shine in the charms
*Never put these pieces in jewelry cleaner.
*Avoid exposure to all chemicals, jewelry cleaners, solvents, and aerosols when cleaning your jewelry
