Care of pearls: Only use jewelry cleaners labeled as safe for pearls. Never use an ultrasonic cleaner. Never steam-clean pearls. Never use (or expose pearls) to dish or wash detergents, bleaches, powdered cleansers, baking soda, or ammonia-based cleaners (like Windex). Never use toothbrushes, scouring pads or abrasive materials to clean pearls. Do not wear pearls when their string is wet. Wet strings stretch and attract dirt, which is hard to remove. Do not hang pearls to dry. Take your pearls off when applying cosmetics, hair spray, and perfume, or when showering or swimming. Avoid wearing pearls with rough fabrics like Shetland wool. Have your pearls restrung once a year if you wear them often.
