How to Clean Velvet Jewelry Displays |

Velvet is one of the favorite types of displays of sellers because of its sophistication, glamour, and its ability to make a necklace stand out. Sometimes, you cannot avoid your velvet-covered jewelry displays from getting dirty or stained. A necklace display with stains cannot accentuate the beauty of your pieces. So once you've noticed some dirt on your displays don't wait weeks or months before cleaning it.

That is why for today, we are sharing a few tips on how to clean your velvet jewelry displays.

Use sticky tape.

For minor dirt like dust and small particles, sticky tape is the cheapest way to go. You only have to cut about two inches of the tape and wrap it around a pencil or your finger with the sticky side out. Gently dab the tape unto the velvet surface. Replace with a new one as necessary.

Use a lint roller.

If it’s mostly fuzz and fur, a lint roller or a lint remover is the way to go. However, this is not too effective for dust, so you will still need sticky tape for it. Gently roll the lint roller all over the surface in one direction. Remove the sheet and replace it with a new one once it's no longer sticky.

Clean with a mild liquid soap solution.

For stubborn stains, try using a mild detergent solution. In a small container, mix warm water with a few drops of mild liquid dish washing soap. Using an old toothbrush, mix the solution. Then gently rub the velvet surface to remove the stains. Afterward, dab a clean lint-free cloth to dry it. Then allow to completely air dry.

Refurbish it.

With some glue and thick wrapping paper, you can refurbish a velvet display if worse comes to worst. If you've tried all the ways to clean it, don't throw it and instead make it look even better. You can also use other materials to cover it like hemp linen, patterned cloth or tissue paper for decoupage. You can also add some embellishments at the edges like old beads or lace.
