Never BUY Jewelry Cleaner ~ Greener Options!


Don’t waste your money on nasty chemicals ~ clean your jewelry the greener, healthier way!

You Will Need:

1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 tablespoon dish detergent
1 cup water
1 piece aluminum foil

1. Heat water in the microwave for 1 or 2 minutes.

2. Cut a piece of aluminum foil that roughly covers the bottom of a small bowl (like a cereal bowl).

3. Pour hot water into bowl. Place salt, soda, and dishwashing liquid into bowl. Place jewelry on top of foil and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Rinse jewelry in cool water and dry jewelry completely with soft cloth. Discard solution after use and make a new batch next time.

4. This works well for gold-filled, brass, German (nickel) silver, and sterling silver.  Even clean jewelry with freshwater pearls, shell cameos and mother of pearl with confidence!

Thanks so much to my good friend, Toni M. for this great tip!

Too Much Sun? Here's Some Relief…

sunburn relief



Had a little too much sun lately?  I came across these ideas and thought i would share.  🙂


Burn-fighting effect:  The potato’s starchy compounds will help take the sting out of sunburn.

Sunburn treatment: Cut a raw potato into slices and rub a piece on your most painful sunburned spots. For a more intensive treatment, grate a cold raw potato and apply it as a poultice.


Burn-fighting effect: When your whole body is sunburned, oatmeal provides the best type of relief.

Sunburn treatment: Grind up a cup of oatmeal in a food processor, add it to cool bathwater, and soak. You can also wrap dry oatmeal in cheesecloth or gauze, run cool water through it, and then toss the oatmeal and soak compresses in the liquid, applying every 2 to 4 hours.

Green Tea

Burn-fighting effect: The milk creates a protein film on your skin that will help ease the discomfort of fresh sunburn.

Sunburn treatment: Apply cool, not cold, milk to your skin using a clean cloth or gauze. Apply compresses for 15 to 20 minutes, and repeat every 2 to 4 hours.


Burn-fighting effect: Cucumbers offer sunburn relief on par with store-bought sunburn-relief products, without added with chemical preservatives and harmful fragrances.

Sunburn treatment: If you’re already burned, mash a cucumber and apply it to your skin.  Grab an organic cucumber from the garden or farmers’ market, peel and chop, and then squeeze the juice. Alternatively, mix it with glycerin and rosewater for protection from the sun.


Burn-fighting effect: Lettuce’s natural pain-killing properties can help wipe away sunburn pain.

Sunburn treatment: Boil lettuce leaves in water. Strain, then let the liquid cool for several hours in the refrigerator. Once chilled, dip cotton balls into the lettuce water and gently wipe over irritated skin.

Fat-Free Milk

Burn-fighting effect: The milk creates a protein film on your skin that will help ease the discomfort of fresh sunburn.

Sunburn treatment: Apply cool, not cold, milk to your skin using a clean cloth or gauze. Apply compresses for 15 to 20 minutes, and repeat every 2 to 4 hours.

This last one may surprise you…

White Vinegar

Burn-fighting effect: White vinegar’s acetic acid acts like a topical anti-inflammatory drug (think aspirin and ibuprofen).

Sunburn treatment: If you’re red (just not blistered), dab a bit of distilled white vinegar onto your sunburn. It will kill the pain for about 20 minutes.
