Title: Cleaning Jewelry
Have you ever had jewelry that was dirty and didn’t want to take it to the jewelry cleaners because it was too expensive? Well I might have an answer for you. My science fair project is on which substance can clean dirty jewelry the best: vinegar and toothpaste. From my research people on
have said that vinegar cleans the jewelry but it has an acid that eats at the jewelry and weakens it. But on
a reader said that you should never use toothpaste on jewelry because only diamonds can take the abrasiveness of toothpaste. I hypothesize that toothpaste would be the better choice because it doesn’t make the jewelry weaker. Materials: Toothpaste (not gel) Vinegar Toothbrush Water Container Baking soda Spoon Cloth. Vinegar: Pour a cup of vinegar in a cup; then pour baking soda into the same cup; next stir; afterwards place the jewelry into the cup and let it sit; lastly, take jewelry out and rinse in cold water. Toothpaste: First Put toothpaste on a soft toothbrush; Second scrub the jewelry with you’re the toothbrushes; lastly rinse off with cold water
. The vinegar mix ended up cleaning the jewelry better.Slide9
My research has shown that when using toothpaste you have to us a certain type of toothpaste in order to actually clean jewelry. When trying to use toothpaste you can’t use the gel kind because most of them aren’t made with baking soda. Baking soda is the key compartment when trying to use toothpaste to clean jewelry. Users from wiki.answers.com say that toothpaste is the best thing to use when cleaning jewelry. But users from answers.yahoo.com had said that using toothpaste is a bad choice. The reason for that is because they say that only diamonds can take the abrasiveness from toothpaste. It may scratch the sensitive parts of jewelry and damage it. That’s why most people test a small area to see how effective toothpaste is so they won’t damage their jewelry. My research has shown that when cleaning jewelry with vinegar you have to make a mix with vinegar to clean jewelry; opposed to toothpaste where you just use it alone. Users on wiki.answers.com say that vinegar just weakens the jewelry and eats at it. Vinegar is a strong acid that can only be use on certain types of jewelry. If you were to leave your jewelry in the mix too long then it would probably damage your jewelry and it would lose its color.
