If you're desperate, try this: Mix baking soda and vinegar in a small dish. Grab a piece of aluminum foil and crumple it with the shiny side showing. Then dip the aluminum foil in the baking soda-vinegar mixture and use it to scrub the jewelry. It's worth a try... however, rust on jewelry usually means it is fake, or not made of real gold or silver--meaning, you can't remove it. If it IS silver, they actually sell silver cleaning cloths in the jewelry department of most stores (Macys, Sears, JCPenney, Boscovs, Nordstrom).

ANSWER #8 of 15

To give you a better answer, I would need to know what the jewelry is made of. Is it gold, silver, platinum, etc...?

You can give this a try, it may work depending on the type of jewelry.

Place some aluminum foil in the bottom of a glass dish, and then place your jewelry in the dish on top of the aluminum foil.

Heat about quart of water either on the stove, or in the microwave until it comes to a boil. Then, add about 1/4 cup of baking soda, and stir it until it is completely dissolved.

Pour the mixture over the jewelry in the glass dish until the jewelry is fully submerged in the mixture.

Leave it there for about 10 minutes to an hour, depending on how bad the jewelry is rusted or tarnished. You should be able to see the jewelry becoming cleaner, and the mixture working.

After it looks like the jewelry is clean, remove the jewelry from the glass dish and wipe it with a dry, soft cloth.
