Brass jewelry looks so amazing and is such an affordable alternative to real gold that I'm totally smitten. If you don't own a brass pendant or brass earrings, you really should give them a try!
I love how the rich colour looks so good with different skin tones and fall outfits, but with time and exposure to moisture and skin oils, brass can develop a patina that darkens your favourite piece.
There's a really simple 3-minute fix to bring back the shine in no time.
Here's what you need:
+ Juice from 1/2 a lemon
+ about a teaspoon of baking soda
+ a little bowl for mixing
+ a soft cloth to apply the paste
Step 1: squeeze the lemon juice into the bowl.
Step 2: add the baking soda and mix to form a paste (the mixture will fizz at first).
Step 3: gently rub onto the brass with the soft cloth in small, circular motions
Step 4: rinse with warm water
Voila! Your brass jewelry will be shiny and bright once again! Let us know your favourite jewelry cleaning tips in the comments section below.
