A toothbrush can be a very helpful tool for many different types of cleaning. You can clean narrow areas in your plumbing with it and also brush up your fine jewelry. With a toothbrush you reach all the little crevices and corners which lets you remove grease and dirt that put a damper on your jewelry. If you have stainless steel jewelry with special settings you need to make sure that your toothbrush is suitable for the entire piece. Try using a babyís toothbrush if you are afraid that it could be too rough for crystals and other decorations.Whitening Toothpaste
Now the fun can begin! If you are not already using whitening toothpaste, get a tube! It will be a great investment for pearly whites and it can serve as your loyal aid in removing scratch marks from your stainless steel jewelry. Add some paste to your soft bristled toothbrush and start brushing your stainless steel like you would your teeth only with more paste. Start on a small area and wipe it off with a wet towel to see if your work has made any difference. If it didnít take all of the scratch marks out of the metal you try another round with toothpaste and continue like that till the jewelry is perfectly clean from marks.The Final Touch
When you are done with the toothbrush and paste you should make sure to clean the jewelry well not to leave any toothpaste. Once it is perfectly clean you can polish it to get a really shiny look. Use a regular metal polish and follow the instructions on the bottle. After this treatment your stainless steel jewelry should look as good as new again.
If you feel that a brush up with toothpaste is time consuming and not so suitable for your specific type of stainless jewelry you can always give it a soapy bath and get rid of dirt and grime. Youíll be amazed to see that many scratches arenít actually scratches but simply dirt stuck in fat from hand cream and other substances that you get in touch with daily. Let the jewelry lay in the soapy water before you dry it with a soft towel and see how the looks turn shiny and new again!
