Jewellery is one of the most sentimental things we have. Even more so if it is a special gift from a loved one.
Brands like Pandora are notorious for being the ultimate go to for birthday, Christmas or anniversary presents and that’s precisely why we cherish their signature charms and bracelets. But of course, as years pass, that can often mean our precious pieces end up collecting dust or worse, looking dirty and worn out.
However, one woman has gone viral after sharing her genius hack for transforming her filthy old Pandora bracelet into a shiny brand new one.
Sharing her clever tip on Facebook group We Love Mrs Hinch along with some impressive before and after pictures, the woman explained that she cleaned her bracelet by soaking it in a pot of boiled water with a small squirt of washing up liquid.
‘Decided to try the washing up liquid with hot kettle water to clean my Pandora,’ she wrote in the post. ‘The crap that has come off is crazy. All that black is off my charms.’
As the image shows, all the dirt collected in her charms quickly fell off and the bracelet turned out looking as good as new. As a result, the comments section on the post was flooded with other women in the group expressing how impressed they were. In fact, there were over 300 comments.
‘I definitely need to do this,’ one woman wrote, while another said: ‘Mine’s well overdue, keep meaning to take it in, I’m amazed at this.’
Meanwhile others provided additional tips, with one saying: ‘If you got an old toothbrush it’s great for rings with gemstones in and brings them up lovely.’
Another said: ‘Always clean my jewellery like this have done for about 20 years.’
In that case, we’ll definitely be trying this!
