The proper cleaning of your jewelry box.
Cleaning your jewelry box might be a long and difficult process because most of them are lined inside with velvet. This material is more difficult to clean than common cloth. If you clean it with towels you may leave lint, and dusters are useless against the inlaid powder. However, this task should not always be a hassle; you can follow some steps to clean your jewelry box without stressing.
Steps to Clean Velvet Jewelry Boxes
- The first step is to remove all jewelry; your jewelry box should be empty.
- Organize your jewelry grouping them by categories such as long and short necklaces, earrings, pin earrings, rings and bracelets. A good idea is to extend them in a table or in your bed, so you know exactly what jewelry you have and how much space you need to rearrange them.
- To clean the case, the most effective tool will be to use a warm wet cloth.
In case the liner in your box is stained, you can use a mild cleaning product, specially formulated for a delicate material such as velvet. The damp cloth will help you to remove much of the dirt, especially dust and hair. If you’ve cleaned everything and the box is still dirty, you just rinse the cloth and wipe again.
Finally, you can spray some air freshener to give it a fresh scent. Wait for the jewelry box to be completely dry and transfer your jewelry back to the jewelry box.
