How do you clean the black off around the holes of the beads ... this is from the wire rubbing with wear? Thanks,
The material you are cleaning will help decide the jewelry cleaner you choose. For metal beads, instant tarnish cleaner will work. For beads that are porous or sensitive to chemicals, using a non-acidic based cleaner like Jewel Brite™ would be a good bet. ODX Degreaser is a good organic cleaner that works with a variety of beading materials such as glass, crystal, wood and metal. After you clean your jewelry, rinse with water then pat the pieces dry.
