  • Metal polish
  • Lemon juice
  • White vinegar
  • Table salt

Important things to remember!

For the items listed here made specifically for cleaning, make sure to check the manufacturer’s instructions before use. If it is your first time to use a particular brand or clean any one of your jewelry displays, try to test first on a hidden part of the display first to see how it reacts to the substance. Discontinue its use if a bad reaction is observed.

Important things to remember!

It’s important to give your tools a quick wipe to remove dust and other particles before the more thorough cleaning steps outlined here. In fact, it’s always a good idea to do a weekly dusting of your jewelry display to keep them spot-free. 

Rust also needs to be attended to right away as it can easily spread if left alone. Likewise, give your tools a polish once they start losing their luster. Again, you must remove the dust first before doing the said procedures.

Luxurious and so elegant to look at, these displays are beauties by themselves which makes them all the more needed to be kept clean and pristine alongside your jewelry collection. Thankfully, cleaning them is a breeze. Simply mix a little bit of liquid soap or dish washing liquid to warm water and give the display a quick soak in the mixture. Afterwards, give the item a rinse in clean water then dry off with a soft clean cloth.

Now, cleaning copper needs some specialized process depending on its finish. Copper displays that come with a lacquered finish can be cleaned up with warm soapy water. If you feel the need to brush the jewelry display then it’s best to stick to a soft-bristled brush. For drying, simply wipe with a dry soft cloth, best if it’s lint-free.

For unlacquered copper, you need to visit your kitchen or refrigerator for your tools. Get a piece of lemon which you will cut in half. Next, dip the part that contains the pulp into salt. Make sure this side is sufficiently covered with salt because you will be using it to shine your copper jewelry display. What you need to do is to rub the lemon on the copper surface of your display. Use a circular motion while rubbing. It is advisable also to give the lemon a little squeeze to release more juice and reapply the salt if needed. Once you are satisfied, simply rinse the piece under warm running water. Afterwards, use a clean cloth for drying. Finally, use a second cloth to buff and polish the copper surface until you have restored shine.


When it comes to your silver tools, store-bought silver polishers are a good buy. You just need to be ready with your cloth for wiping and polishing.

Again, just like with copper, all you need is a quick check into your kitchen pantry to find the tools you will need. To remove hard water spots which look unsightly on chrome surfaces, you need to mix a solution containing half white vinegar and half water. Simply soak a sponge or a soft-bristled brush into the solution then use your tool to clean up the spots on the chrome surface. For spots that are especially hard to remove, you may use a 100% vinegar solution. Once it’s clean, rinse the display in water then let dry and buff using a soft microfiber cloth. 

Follow these tips and your jewelry displays will soon be pristine again and sparkling in no time.
