Cleaning Your Xauv
How to clean your "Money 2," a common term used in the Hmong Community, in referrence to, "silver plated," jewelries.
A few days ago, a lady posted on FB ranting of frustration on the results after cleaning her silver plated jewelry. Obviously it wasn't good. All rusted afterward. She used the same bottle I used
Note: Once the silver is stripped, you will no longer be able to clean. Only solution is to replating the silver.
The layer of silver plated are so thin, it will not withstand the strong chemical solution. IMPORTANT: PLEASE DO NOT DIP OR SUBMERGE items into the chemical solution(the solution will strip the layer of silver right off), instead, use cotton balls or cotton swabs. It is not a process that can be shortcut or rushed. Please clear your schedule and take your time.
Using a cotton ball or cotton swab or tooth brush if you are cleaning your Xauv to get into the narrow coils and wipe in a polishing motion.
Once you are done wiping them down, then raise items in lukewarm water for 5 minutes, long enough to ensure all chemicals are rinsed off.
Once done with rinsing, blow dry items in high heat temperature until dry. Once dry, please bring the hot items back to room temperature or cool down by lowering heat temperature in cold or cool air.
You are done. Pack securely into zip lock bag and put away. If it doesn't work, you will know right away the following day.
GOOD LUCK and Take care!
