What? You thought all you had to clean was your jewelry? Did you really think your jewelry display cases, trays and more would last years without cleaning? Of course not. So, once in awhile, you’d have to close up shop early, take all your display out and start cleaning. Well, you can always have someone else clean it, but where’s the fun in that?
Don’t worry, I promise, it’s not rocket science. Here are a few ways you can clean your display pieces.
One of the easiest ways to get the dust and dirt out is by using a vacuum cleaner. If you happen to have one of those vacuums with hoses that can get into the corners of trays, then you’d have better luck in actually cleaning your jewelry display. Don’t use those big vacuums of course, otherwise, it’d probably suck the whole display. Complete failure!
Okay, so this is a little harder and it’ll take much longer than a vacuum cleaner. However, if you really want to remove the lint and fingerprints on the display, you can use the sticky side of a scotch tape to dab and remove any lint on the surface. Yes, I imagine this is a really hard task, especially if the display keeps sticking to the scotch tape and it will. You can also try rolling a masking tape with its sticky side out and then roll it around the surface. This may be less effective, but easier to handle.
These pet rollers work almost exactly like a vacuum cleaner, but they are usually smaller and meant for actual pet hair on clothes. Although these won’t work on trays with compartments, they’ll work well on pendant boards and flat trays because they don’t have to creep into corners and crevices.
Damp cloth for wiping and finish off cleaning
Once the dust has been removed, it is now time to finish off cleaning by wiping your jewelry display with a damp cloth. And no, do not use this damp cloth cleaning method on carpeted displays like some pendant boards and jewelry trays because you’ll only get the opposite effect of cleaning.
I prefer to clean my own jewelry display. Sometimes, it’s like me and my shop time. Not only did I NOT want to spend a few hundred bucks on getting someone else to clean my jewelry display, but I also didn’t want to risk any of my unique jewelry displays. At least, if something happens, I can only blame myself for not cleaning well.
What about you? What do you do to clean your jewelry display?
