Bronze

Bronze is a live alloy of metals and it reacts differently depending on your skin’s pH level. Some people may notice their jewellery pieces will get darker over time while others will see them become shinier with wear.

Because of the copper content in bronze, sometimes wearing bronze jewellery can cause your skin to turn green where it touches the metal. This green staining is not harmful to the skin, nor is it permanent. It can be easily washed off with soap and water. You can have your bronze jewellery sealed with clear nail polish to prevent your skin from turning green.

To clean your bronze jewellery, apply some mild soap to the piece, and rub it to take out any dirt that has accumulated. Rinse it with water and dry it using a towel.

Bronze jewellery may tarnish with time and wear. You can restore your jewellery’s original, shiny look by removing the patina with a mix of 2 to 3 tablespoons of baking soda and lemon juice. Rub the paste onto your jewellery using a cloth or a toothbrush until the item is clean – then rinse it and dry it with a cloth. If the patina is persistent, you might need to repeat the process until the tarnish goes away. You can also soak the piece in vinegar for about 20 minutes before cleaning it.

When taking off your bronze jewellery after wearing it, wipe the piece clean with a soft cloth before storing it. This will help remove any traces of oils from your skin. You can keep your jewellery piece in its original bag to slow down the formation of patina.

 

Silver

Clean your silver jewellery with a mild soap and water solution, then pat dry it with a soft cloth. For more stubborn dirt, use a cleaner designed for silver use.

If your silver jewellery has tarnished, you can use a tarnish-removing polishing cream to remove the black coating. For persistent tarnish, you may also use a silver cleaning dip. Line a glass container with aluminium foil, pour some hot water and add one or two tablespoons of salt and baking soda. Leave your silver piece in the dip for about five minutes, then rinse it with water and dry it using a soft cloth.

Don’t use toothpaste to clean your silver jewellery as it can be too abrasive and cause damage. Don’t wear your silver jewellery in chlorinated water or when working with household chemicals.

Store your jewellery piece in a cool, dry place, preferably in its original bag or wrapped in a soft piece of felt to slow down tarnishing.

Leather

Quality leather only gets better with time and wear. It becomes softer, develops a beautiful patina and can last a lifetime if looked after properly.

Clean your leather item regularly with a soft brush or cloth. If your bag or shoes get wet, blot away water or moisture as soon as possible. Do not use artificial heat. Instead, absorb as much water as possible with a thick microfiber hand towel and allow the item to air dry.

Remove stains as soon as you notice them. Organic stains from food can often be removed with chalk powder. Crush white chalk, let it sit on the stain overnight and dust it off with a clean cloth. Waxes or silicone products clog up leather pores and may render them unable to be cleaned in the future.

To keep leather supple, you may use a specialised leather conditioner every 3 to 6 months. Test any conditioners, cleaners, polishes or wax in a hidden spot beforehand.

 

Denim

Try not to wash your jeans too often to maintain their fit. You can clean stains using mild soap and a damp cloth. Washing them with cold water protects against fading and shrinking. Ideally turn your jeans inside out and avoid harsher soaps to preserve its original colour.

Line-dry your jeans in a shady space whenever possible. This helps preserve the fit and avoids possible fading, shrinkage, or fabric warping.
