Cleaning Your Copper Wire Jewelry
1. Mix up a couple of teaspoons of lemon juice with a couple of teaspoons of vinegar.
2. Add just enough baking soda to make it become a gritty paste.
3. Use this with a cloth or toothbrush to scrub your brass or copper items.
4. Rinse with lukewarm water and dry with a clean cloth.
An ionic cleaner such as the Speed Brite works well on both copper and brass jewelry items and with no harm to gemstones or beads. If the piece does not clean immediately with the regular clip and dip method, use a soft toothbrush under running water afterwards, to assist the process.
