Cómo desinfectar sus joyas

Todos nos lavamos las manos con más frecuencia en estos días, o al menos deberíamos hacerlo. Es uno de los componentes más importantes para detener la propagación de COVID-19. ¿Pero desinfecta sus joyas? ¿Y tu reloj?Según los CDClos estudios han demostrado que la piel debajo de los anillos contiene más gérmenes que la piel sin anillos. ¡Qué asco!

Si usar joyas es parte de su rutina diaria, limpiarlas también debería ser parte de ella. A continuación, le indicamos cómo desinfectar sus joyas y accesorios diarios:

Cómo desinfectar sus joyas de diamantes

Los diamantes son únicos porque son la sustancia natural más dura de la Tierra. Debe limpiar sus joyas de diamantes con regularidad, especialmente si es un anillo de boda / compromiso que usa todos los días. Los diamantes y la mayoría de las gemas de colores se pueden limpiar con agua tibia, jabón suave para platos (sin detergentes) y un cepillo suave según GIA. Asegúrese de enjuagar sus joyas en un vaso de agua para eliminar las soluciones de limpieza en lugar de enjuagarlas con agua corriente. De esa manera, no perderá piedras sueltas.

Cómo desinfectar sus relojes Rolex

Los relojes de lujo, como Rolex, requieren cuidados y servicios especiales cada pocos años. Entre visitas, puede mantener su Rolex limpio y libre de gérmenes siguiendo estos pasos:

  1. Atornille la corona. According to Rolex, “the crown of your Rolex screws down tightly to create a hermetic seal like the hatch of a submarine.” This important step will keep your watch waterproof and safe during cleaning.
  2. Fill a small bowl with water and a bit of mild soap. Soaps with harsh chemicals could damage your Rolex
  3. Scrub the watch gently with a soft toothbrush. Dip the brush in the cleaning solution and scrub the watch everywhere, including between the links and lugs.
  4. Rinse the watch under warm water. Make sure all the soap is washed away to avoid residue.
  5. Dry using a microfiber cloth. This will prevent scratching and leave your Rolex shining like new!

How to Disinfect Your Silver Jewelry

For polishing and disinfecting silver, we recommend using specially-made silver wipes, like these ones from Weiman. These wipes were made to remove tarnish, polish dull and discolored metal with a mild, fresh-scented formula.

For those stuck at home, here’s a home remedy from The Today Show:

What you’ll need:

  • A dish or a bowl
  • Aluminum foil
  • Boiling water
  • 1 tbsp of baking soda for each cup of water

What you’ll do:

  1.  Line the bottom of a dish or a bowl with aluminum foil.
  2.  Bring water to a roaring boil (it should be enough to fill that bowl or dish).
  3.  Add 1 tbsp of baking soda per cup of water. Expect that the solution may bubble and froth a bit.
  4.  Place the piece of silver jewelry in the dish, making sure that it’s touching the aluminum foil. This is essential for the chemical reaction to occur.
  5.  Pour the solution of baking soda and boiling water into dish.
  6.  Let sit for two to 10 minutes, depending on the level of tarnish.
  7.  Allow it to dry.

How to Disinfect Your Smart Watches and Fitness Trackers

For smart watches and fitness trackers, we recommend using alcohol pads. You can purchase these online or at any drug store. This will disinfect your accessory without damaging the materials in the process.

Other Cleaning Tips

It’s also important to note that hand sanitizer should not be used on any organic gems like pearls, opals or turquoise. The alcohol in the sanitizer can dry out the gems leading to permanent damage. When in doubt, take off your jewelry before washing your hands.
