If you'd like your costume pieces to become heirlooms, you'll need to take good care of them. So, here are some tips:

  • Do use a soft cloth or baby toothbrush.
  • Do try to clean with toothpaste (not gel) or a mixture of baking soda and water.
  • Do store jewelry in airtight containers or sealed plastic bags to protect them from moisture.
  • Do keep items separated to protect from scratches.
  • Don't use any products that contain ammonia, vinegar or any other acids or alcohols on your costume jewelry.
  • Don't use soap and water on jewelry with stones.
