Clean precious stone jewels with this easy mix.

Step 1: Measure 1/2 cup ammonia, 1/2 cup dishwashing liquid, and 1 1/2 cups of warm water into the glass jar, preferably one with a wide mouth. Mix gently. For a smaller amount, measure 1 tablespoon ammonia, 1 tablespoon dishwashing liquid, and 3 tablespoons water in a small glass dish.

Step 2: Drop jewelry gently into the mixture in the jar. More than one piece at a time will workvery well. Allow to soak for at least 10 minutes.

Step 3: Remove pieces one by one, gently scrubbing the backs of stones or other recesses with a baby toothbrush or other soft brush, if necessary. Rinse with clean warm water and lay out each piece to dry on a dry cloth. Polish each piece with a dry cloth.
