My Polishing Cloth Turned Black!

Every piece of jewelry that Sorella Jewelry sells is shipped with a polishing cloth.

Sometimes we received emails from customers concerned that their polishing cloth turned black when they cleaned their piece of jewelry.  “The jewelry is dirty!” they tell us.

Hold on. Things are not as they seem.

Jewelry polishing cloths are impregnated with special polish treatments and chemicals to clean the metal.

When you rub your piece of jewelry with the cloth, the polish on the part of the cloth leaves the cloth. What’s left on the cloth is a black mark indicating that the polish is gone from that section.

It’s not dirty. It’s simply the absence of polish. When the cloth is completely black, there’s no polish left and it should be discarded.
