Clean Jewelry

We hate when our jewelry builds up rust and leaves marks on our fingers so the best way to get your silver to polish like new is to allow it to soak in Windex for several minutes and no more and clean thoroughly. Stay away from pieces that should not be cleaned with alcohol or ammonia because these ingredients are contained in Windex.
