DIY Repair Accesories

I have been searching out ways to repair accessories instead of trashing and having to buy new! It can be pricey, you have to admit it. So here are some of the fun DIY tips for repairing your accesories! It was fun researching this topic!

Dull Jewelry

You love wearing your favorite necklace, and after awhile it begins to go dull, and just loses its shine. Here is a simple way to help shine it back up!

1 Polident denture/partial cleaner, in a cup of warm/hot water. Allow jewelry to soak for like 10 minutes, and then take out of the water, and gently scrub with a soft toothbrush that you dip in the warm water. Allow to dry and you are set!

OR

For plain silver jewelry without gemstones or intricate patterns, a quick-shine strategy is to soak the items in a mixture of ½ cup warm water, three to four drops of dishwashing liquid, and one drop of household ammonia.

Purse Losing Its Shape

Let it stand, stuffed with tissue paper, for a few days.  After a few days pass, just remove tissue, and it will re-gain its original state!

Stretched-Out Plastic Sunglasses

Put sunglasses in hot water, or blast them with a hair dryer until the plastic starts to become flexible, then slowly and gently bend the frame back into shape.
