In addition to these household tricks, there are of course more professional cleaning methods. An ultrasonic cleaner is a great option that will allow you to clean the touches more easily. However, if the jewelry contains gemstones, it is recommended not to use an ultrasonic cleaner. This is because ultrasonic cleaners operate with strong vibrations and churning. This can damage the gemstones, causing them to break, come loose from their base, or fall off completely.
