Clean your Jewelry and Diamonds Using Vodka

Here is an interesting method for cleaning your jewelry. I myself have yet to try this, I use an ultrasonic cleaner. However, I am in the mood for a Vodka Cranberry Elixir so I might test this. Now, I do not advocate it yet, hence clean at your own risk!
Things You'll Need: Diamond or other jewelry, jewelry brush, small bowl, vodka, jewelry cloth or t shirt
POUR a small amount of vodka into a small dish or bowl. Pour enough so that the jewelry will be completely covered when it is submerged.

PLACE your desired jewelry into the vodka and let it soak for 30-45 seconds. It really does not need to soak very long in order to get it to sparkle.

USE a jewelery brush or any soft bristled brush to remove any build up in the jewelry's setting. Gently work in the areas and underneath the stone. If you do not have one, you can skip this step.

RINSE off jewelry with warm water to remove vodka cleaning agent. Be sure to handle the item with care. Have the water on a gentle stream so that way you lower the risk of dropping it.

DRY jewelry off gently with soft cloth or even a t-shirt.
