Use the right tools to make the job easier! Our special Microfibre Household or Luxury Dusters have tiny, asterisk shape polyester and nylon fibres, making them better at picking up dirt and retaining it without smearing. A real friend around the house!
It’s best not to leave your stainless steel cutlery soaking in tap water overnight – this can cause as much corrosion damage as 3 or 4 months of normal use!
Soap from showering and housework can cause a film to form on jewellery, making it appear dull. Give your gold a quick, occasional polish with one of our Brilliant Gold Polishing Cloths – you won’t believe the difference!
Use a paint brush to dust cracks and hard to reach places. Or try my soft Filigree Cleaning Brush – it’s specially design for hard to reach cracks and crevices.
Wear your silver jewellery as much as possible – doing so helps keep the silver bright! Revive dull Silver with a polishing cloth – you won’t believe the difference!
Never wash your pearl necklace in water or dip it in jewellery cleaners. If the string gets too wet it will expand and could crack the stones. Our specialist Pearl Cleaners are designed to clean and protect your pearls in the safest possible way.
When drying silver, avoid using brand new linen cloths; the starch in them is often too abrasive. Wash new tea towels in a delicate fabric conditioner first.
Pop a dry tea towel in with a load in your tumble dryer and you’ll find it reduces the drying time.
With the central heating on so much during winter, try to place your leather furniture at least two feet (60cm) away from a radiator or other heat source to help prevent it drying out.
Rotate the use of your silver cutlery to help the even development of the special patina and wear that gives silver its beautiful warmth.
