DIY | Silver Jewelry Cleaner

Today, I’m bringing you a post that is a little different!

I usually wear gold jewelry, but while putting together some outfits over the weekend, I realized that for a couple of looks,  silver accessories would be best. After pulling out a few of my favorite pieces, I noticed they were looking pretty rough. So, being the DIY enthusiast that I am, I figured I’d try to make my own silver jewelry cleaner.  The results…impressive!
