Cleaning Jewellery Brass Rings
Place your rings in a mixture of water, white vinegar and salt. Length of time depends on the depth of the tarnish, but usually 30-60seconds is enough, take out and rinse thoroughly under running water. Dry.
For that extra shine you can then place them in your tumbler with some water and dish washing detergent......hmmm, pretty!
