How to Effectively Use an Ultrasonic Cleaner for Your Jewellery

Ultrasonic cleaners are a convenient and efficient way to clean your jewellery at home. They use high-frequency sound waves to create small bubbles that gently remove dirt and grime from your jewellery, leaving it sparkling clean. However, to get the best results from your ultrasonic jewellery cleaner, you must know how to use it effectively. This article will walk you through using an ultrasonic cleaner for your jewellery.

Choose the Right Cleaning Solution

Before using an ultrasonic cleaner, choose the right cleaning solution for your silver bracelets. Ensure the solution is specifically designed for use in an ultrasonic cleaner, and read the instructions carefully to ensure it’s suitable for your type of ornament. Most ultrasonic cleaners have a recommended cleaning solution, so be sure to use it if available.

Prepare Your Ultrasonic Cleaner

Once you have your cleaning solution, it’s time to prepare your cleaner. Ensure the tank is clean and filled with enough water to cover your jewellery. You can add the cleaning solution to the water as per the instructions on the package. Avoid hot water, which can damage your ornament or make certain stones more susceptible to cracking or breaking.

Place Your Jewellery

Place your jewellery in the cleaner’s basket or tray, ensuring it’s not touching other pieces of ornament. This will prevent them from scratching each other during the cleaning process. Close the lid of the cleaner, and turn it on. Most ultrasonic cleaners have a timer, so set it to the recommended cleaning time.

Wait for the Cleaning Cycle to Complete

Once you’ve turned on the ultrasonic cleaner, wait for the cleaning cycle to complete. Most cleaners have a timer that automatically shuts off the machine once the cycle is done. Depending on the type of jewellery you are cleaning, the cleaning cycle may vary from a few seconds to several minutes. Be patient and wait for the cleaning cycle to complete before removing your adornment.

Remove Your Jewellery 

Once the cleaning cycle is complete, remove your jewellery from the cleaner. Be sure to use gloves or a cloth to handle them, as they may be hot or slippery after cleaning. Inspect your ornaments for any remaining dirt or grime. If there is still some dirt, you can repeat the process or use a soft-bristled brush to remove any remaining dirt or grime.

Rinse and Dry Your Jewellery

After removing your jewellery from the ultrasonic cleaner, rinse it thoroughly in clean water to remove any remaining cleaning solution. Make sure you rinse your ornament thoroughly to prevent any soap residue from building up on them. Finally, use a soft cloth to dry your jewellery thoroughly. Avoid using a hairdryer or any other heat source to dry your jewellery, as this can cause damage to some types of stones.

Store Your Cleaned Jewellery

Once your jewellery is dry, store it safely, away from direct sunlight and moisture. It’s essential to store your jewellery correctly to avoid any damage, tarnishing or scratching.


An ultrasonic jewellery cleaner is a fantastic investment for anyone who wants to keep their jewellery looking its best. By using the right cleaning solution, correctly preparing the cleaner, and following the steps outlined in this guide, you can ensure they get the best possible clean. Not only does it save you time and money, but it also gives you peace of mind knowing that your ornament is being cleaned thoroughly and effectively. Regular use can help extend your jewellery’s lifespan and keep it looking new for years to come.
