Cleaning Your Jewelry in the Dishwasher

That’s what I said! When I met Jacque Egnatic, the inventor of Jeweler in the Dishwasher, at a recent trade show, I’m sure that I had this dumb, questioning look on my face. What? Clean my fine jewels in the… dishwasher? With my…dirty dishes? Well, Jacque was quick to present enough evidence to have me wipe that look off my face in just a few moments.

Turns out that Jacque is a second generation jeweler with 37 years of experience making, repairing and designing fine jewelry. She KNOWS jewelry and all the tricks to maintain it. Cleaning is one of them. She says that cleaning jewelry is a lot like washing a car. You need hot water combined with a good degreaser to remove caked on dirt that is trapped in crevices… whether of car details or of jewelry!

Jacque sent me a Jeweler in the Dishwasher unit to try at home. I put in only one earring from a pair (to compare the two), a tennis bracelet, my wedding ring and some ancient gold chains that had never been cleaned. I felt that the whole process was very safe, because the jewelry is encased in two layers of baskets and the water does not blast into the Jeweler in the Dishwasher. Instead, the water trickles into the baskets and the “eggs” and allows the jewelry to soak in the heated solution, and then it slowly drains out. After the wash, I took a small brush to loosen up any remaining debris and I was done.

The results are superior to using an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner. Plus there are no additional cleaning chemicals to buy. Though remarkable to the eye, I could not capture the comparison of the cleaned vs. not cleaned earrings on camera. But it was very noticeable, much like what Jacque describes in her blog. The “magic” in Jacque’s invention is that the Jeweler in the Dishwasher is designed to take advantage of what the dishwasher’s environment naturally offers: the degreaser in the detergent along with the hot water in the dishwasher. A perfect storm of cleaning power. And, if you use green detergent in your dishwasher, that should work just as well as the commercial brands.

The Jeweler in the Dishwasher works great for fine karat jewelry that contains rubies, diamonds, or sapphires. Sterling silver is safe to be placed in the cleaner too, but jewelry should be removed immediately after the wash cycle, and dried with a soft cloth. Go here see about other types of stones that can and cannot be cleaned using this method.

Purchase the basket kit on the Jeweler in the Dishwasher site for $19.95.
