Topics: Cleaning Tarnished Findings

Q.
I stopped beading for a while and my findings tarnished quite badly and now I have people asking me to start beading again. I really need to get these findings clean. Thanks so much for your advice.

You can clean most metals in the Empire's instant tarnish remover. Be sure to read the warnings with it though, as it's not safe for use with certain materials like pearls, porous beads, etc.

You can clean most jewelry, findings and household items easily in this Ultrasonic jewelry cleaner that uses ultrasonic waves.

Once your findings are clean, you'll want to be sure and store them in plastic zip-top bags and containers that are air tight. It is exposure to the air that causes the tarnish, so any way you can reduce that will be better for you in the long run. Here is a link to some anti-tarnish products for future reference.
