Dip the jewelry piece directly into the cleaner solution all the way in.

Dip 2 times.

Rinse the piece under running water, or in a bowl of clean water.

Dry the beads as soon as possible. Do not store away until they are completely dry.

Drop the piece of jewelry to be cleaned into the basket inside the jar.

Let the piece soak for a few minutes.
Step 4
Pull the basket out of the cleaner to retrieve the piece being cleaned.

Use the brush that comes with the cleaner to get dirt out of crevices and from behind stones.
Step 6
Rinse the piece with running water, and dry completely.
