is "costume" jewellery still a thing? is there another less antiquated term for "fake" that i should be using? or maybe i'll just bring it back. costume jewellery it is.
when you are paying a quarter for a piece of jewellery (THRIFTERS UNITE!) the shiny factor may not be up to par. here is a quick and easy way to clean and shine your faux accessories.
YOU WILL NEED:
- a bowl
- baking soda
- boiling water
- a rag
- a mug and teabag
use the leftover hot water to make a cup of tea which you can sit and enjoy while the bubbles do their work.
when the bubbles have stopped and the water is cool enough to reach into, retrieve your jewellery and use a rag to wipe them off and polish. feel free to grimace at the black marks that will appear on your rag. marvel at the new shine of your beloved necklaces, brooches and things.
