SWAROVSKI CRYSTALS

Occasional polishing with a soft lint-free cloth or the Swarovski crystals Jewelry Polishing Cloth, will help you to retain the original sheen of the crystal elements. If Swarovski crystals - are soiled, they

should be cleaned by hand in lukewarm water with a few drops of mild dish detergent or soap with a ph neutral base. Then rinse the crystals under running water and afterwards dry them with a soft,
lint-free cloth to avoid spotting and lint spoiling the shine. ALWAYS dry your jewelry immediately after cleaning and store it in a dry, cool place until ready to wear to avoid tarnishing.

Under no circumstances should any abrasive or corrosive detergents be used; glass and window-cleaning fluids and chlorine should also be avoided, as they often cause streaking.
