This cloth works wonders. Some of my jewelry was so dark and dirty, but this cloth did magic. It cleaned it so well and made it shiny. I own a lot of silver, not really gold or brass items, so I only used it for silver items and it works great. Bit of work gets put in if it's really dirty, but the cloth makes it look like your items are new.
I love it.
September 18, 2017
I wish I could give it 10 stars. So I was in distress to find out that I had to pay to get my jewelry polish, and I googled different ways to get my tarnished silver and gold pieces. I tried everything but nothing was getting them nice and shinny. So I found this and I bought it and it works, I polished everything and my jewelry looks like new. I love it.
Easily polishes silver and copper
May 25, 2017
I love this polishing cloth. I used it on silver and copper and it easily removed the tarnish. I also used it on a byzantine chainmail bracelet and it was shining in no time. I gladly recommend it and will order a second one to have on hand.
This cloth Sparkles and Shines
March 9, 2017
Absolutely Love this item, Quality is amazing, and shines and buffs like no other item i've had. To be honest it looks just like the piece of cloth laying in every Jewelers counter when you walk in. Very pleased with my purchase, and I know my sterling silver jewelery pieces thank me as well!

October 9, 2016
We ordered these polishing cloths to use in our estate jewelry store to touch up pieces for our customers or to clean delicate jewelry that cannot be dipped into liquid cleaner. All of our staff give rave reviews for these cloths. They especially like the buffing cloth that is included with the cleaning cloth and really enjoy the large size because it helps to keep their fingers and hands from being stained black from the tarnish (which was a problem with the smaller cloths that do not have the buffing cloth). We have already placed a second order for more.
Works on silver, copper, brass!
July 5, 2016
I've used silver polishing cloths in the past, but this one is the best so far. For example look at the photos of my bracelet. I'm not sure what the steel looking metal is, since the bracelet wasn't expensive enough for it to be sliver, but it does tarnish. The other two are copper and brass. The cloth did a fabulous job on all three metals! The cloth is large enough that I am considering cutting off a third of it to keep in my jewelry drawer for quick touch-ups. The rest is large enough to clean my few silver pieces and brass candle sticks.I'm really pleased I don't have to drag out the messy polishing cream anymore!
Good Product, Cleans Well
June 18, 2017
Works extremely well, jewelry came out clean as promised. I'd recommend running everything twice through the machine though (2 sessions of 3 minutes) as that seems to make the jewelry as clean as possible. Oh, and enjoy reading the directions. Seriously, read them. The translations into English are so poor you will actually get some entertainment value reading them. The unit is small and compact so don't feel like you are losing counter space.
RETURN TO SPARKLE WITH MONEY TO SPARE!
June 4, 2017
It has gotten so expensive to have good jewelry cleaned at the jewelry store, and I tried toothpaste with a toothbrush on my stuff-it was ok. I am so happy we got this machine, very user friendly, just read all directions carefully first to be safe; it does a GREAT job in professional cleaning-I did purchase a cleaning solution with the machine, and diluted the solution with water-got EXCELLENT results in just a few minutes...-if you're on the fence and you love your jewelry go for it, money well worth spent-you will save on cleaning outside in the long run!
Quality and Performance
May 14, 2017
Great product. Quality build. Works as advertised. Has a 3 minute timer which is generally adequate for cleaning soap and dirt off jewelry. Stainless steel cleaning chamber. Nice plastic tray to hold your jewelry in the cleaning solution. We did not buy the expensive cleaning solution. Simply put a few cc's of a household cleaner in the stainless tank and add water.
Far better than my expectations
March 20, 2017
I was a little leary because of many mixed reviews. I actually purchased this on accident as I meant to put it in my wishlist and actually put it in my cart. Best accidental purchase ever! Love this! I threw in 2 platinum necklaces, my wedding ring and some miscellaneous Lia Sophia earrings (knowing full well there was the potential for damage to them based on reviews). Everything turned out fantastic. I did three cycles because of how filthy my jewelry was and they are super sparkling clean. No scrubbing, no fancy cleaning solution. I did one cycle with a drop of dawn dish soap and the other two cycles with nothing other than tap water. I even have friends that will be bringing over their jewelry to try it out and see if they want to buy one too!No I wasn't paid for my review, no I didn't receive a discount - I paid full price and even bought this accidentally. I do love to give honest and true product reviews as I base a lot of my purchases on other peoples reviews. Please let me know if this review was helpful!
Fantastic! Large Size! A Must Buy!!!!!!
January 25, 2017
My jewelry looks BRAND NEW and soooo shiny! I can easily clean necklaces, my glasses, watches, and earrings at the same time due to the large size! A must buy especially for the price!I took a video but it wouldn't allow me to post it. So I posted a screenshot of my rings after having cleaned them. My camera wouldn't focus that close up in the video but you can clearly see how shiny and sparkling my rings look.
Works as Advertised!
December 2, 2016
I've only had this about two weeks. So far, I'm extremely satisfied with it. I have it set up in a pull-out drawer with an electrical outlet in my bathroom, and I just drop my jewelry in there and run it while getting ready in the morning. I've cleaned all my husband's glasses as well, and he says that they are super clean. This machine is ridiculously easy to work--plug it in, fill with water, put jewelry in the included basket, and click the ON button. It makes a very quiet buzzing noise to let you know it is working. The sound is very soft--just enough to reassure you that the cycle is still running. Everyone comments on how sparkling my diamond ring is!

May 31, 2017
When my mother went into the nursing home, she gave me my grandmothers silverware. The silverware had not been used in decades, it was in bad condition. I ordered the Polishing cloth because of the size of the cloth. I knew I had a lot of work to do to get the silverware cleaned. The cloth was amazing, I did have to wet the silverware with a little water due to the tarnish on them. The cloth did an amazing job. I am proud to use my grandmothers silver everyday !
I'd buy it again.
April 18, 2017
I love the ease with which these cloths work, and they DO work, instantly. I am not sure the polished effect lasts as long but that's okay with me because this is so much easier to use.
Cleans without messy creams
July 24, 2016
I've never used a polishing cloth and couldn't imagine they would work very well. But this one changed my mind. It works and without a lot of rubbing. I used it on small pieces of silver and brass. I gave it four stars only because I have nothing to compare it to. I've always used creams and liquids to clean silver and brass.
Thick, soft material
April 22, 2016
This does the job pretty well on silver jewelry, etc., but it isn't as good as the one I used to death before. It takes more work to get the tarnish off than the old one. Still the cloth is thick and very soft, so it won't harm your silver.
December 19, 2015
I bought this set for my husband,and he was very happy with it!The case they come in is cute,i just wish there was a little more of something there to protect the discs.It makes a nice gift,of a great collection of movies.
Pretty good little device
April 29, 2017
I've had jewelry cleaned professionally at the jewelry store, and this machine isn't equivalent to that. But it does a decent job of cleaning glasses and rings, dental night guard/partials, etc. I didn't find it very effective with plain water and after trying that a couple times now use just a single drop of Dawn liquid at the start of the cycle. It's quick, doesn't take up much space to store, and handy to have at home. Definitely easier than jewelry cleaners or polish that require buffing, rinsing, and so on. Good alternative at a very reasonable cost.
Good but not as strong as heavy duty professional cleaners.
January 27, 2017
It's good, it cleans ok but hoped it cleaned for longer and better. If you plan on cleaning silver jewelry or other items save the hassle and use baking soda with hot water and aluminum foil to get way better results. This cleaner works fine for dental night guards, tooth brushes, plastics and non silver jewelry just fine. Wish it had more modes than on or off. A setting for 2 or 3 sequential cleaning cycles would be ideal. Some dish soap will help clean better, just make sure you rinse it well. Do Not get the device wet besides the tank it can short out.
Does what it says but it isn't a miracle worker.
September 13, 2016
I use this for cleaning jewelry, retainers, and electric razor components and it works well if paired with a cleaning solution (retainer or jewelry cleaner) but it isn't going to remove deep stains or anything. My retainers seem to be cleaned nearly as well by just using the retainer cleaning tabs by themselves so I don't really know how much this does. However, it's lasted so far (four months about) and done well for almost daily use. Simple and well made.
Very Good not excellent
January 27, 2016
It is very good at cleaning jewery and such. However it is not as good as a professional cleaning. I submerged my husbands gold ring in the machine and although it did clean it, it did not clean it completely. I took it into the jeweler and had it sized and they cleaned it and you could see the difference. So that is what accounts for the four stars. That being said, I use it to clean my costume jewelry and it does a good job. The watch accessory included wlith the machine is useless because it sticks up out of the water line so that the watch cant get cleaned. So I don't use it, I just throw the watch in and turn it on. Also it cleans in 3 minute increments at a time so you have to push the button over again to extend the cleaning time for as long as it takes to get the right results.

Worthwhile Cleaning Machine
July 15, 2015
I'm very happy with this product, especially given the price. I bought it primarily to clean jewelry and when I tried it with jewelry that was already pretty clean I couldn't really tell the difference after one round. So I decided to test it on a pair of nail clippers that were in visible need of a good cleaning. Used water and a bit of dishwashing liquid. After one round (3 minute cleansing cycle) the water in the machine was dirty so I replaced it and I could already see improvement. It took four or five rounds to get the thing super clean and I had to clean the crevices on the inside with a q-tip. But even that dirt was loosened and easy to remove. The results are pretty amazing. And the water doesn't even get hot! The one annoying thing is that the cleaning cycles are only 3 minutes long. I'd love to just set the machine to say 10 minutes if I have a super dirty item so I don't have to keep resetting it. But this thing definitely works.
Three Star Reviews:
Did nothing to remove brass tarnish.
September 19, 2017
This cloth polished some silver items well, however it did not remove tarnish/soil from solid brass furniture drawer handles. They look exactly the same whereas the knobs cleaned up and polished beautifully with Brass liquid polishes.
September 3, 2017
It works to clean the jewelry there just isn't enough of it and the blue will pill on you.
Could be they were just really dirty.
April 27, 2017
It's ok but took a lot longer with more elbow grease than anticipated. Used on my Alex and Ani bangles. I have eight and it took an hour and a half. Could be they were just really dirty.

August 15, 2015
So far this product has done its job in polishing my silver jewelry. I do have to say I was surprised and glad that this slip of paper came with the product in case I did damage my other jewelry, but the product information should have listed the caution label.
Be aware that you can't use this on several types of stones!!
May 17, 2015
So let me clarify. 5 stars for how this works on silver! Used it on jewelry and it worked pretty well. HOWEVER, be aware that you aren't supposed to use this on porous stones. "Like: pearls, opals, coral, lapis, malachite and other soft stones" that's a direct quote from the paper that came with the cloth.I'm a little peeved because it doesn't say this ANYWHERE in the description. Just double checked!! Almost all the jewelry I was going to use this on has lapis. A set my husband got me, all with lapis inlay. I wouldn't have bought this if I'd seen that.

April 5, 2017
I really wanted to love this product but we ended up returning it because it just didn't deliver as promised. My wedding ring or glasses for example barely looked cleaner after using this and I really expected more. I'd rather save the money and clean my things in a different and more efficient way.
Good for the price.
December 2, 2016
It gets things cleaner but I am not sure how. It's strange to watch things get cleaner because it doesn't look like anything is happpening beyond it making noise. Sometime I have to clean things 2 - cycles which is why I am giving it a 3 star.
Great for the price
July 7, 2016
I used this to clean airbrushes and it works okay. I was rough on mine going as far as even using light solvents which ultimately led to this falling apart fairly quickly. It is built of cheap thin plastics but gets the job done for the most part. For what I do I should probably being using a Stainless steel commercial unit. This is why I am giving them 3 stars I feel like under normal household use conditions the product would have lasted years. I did end up buying another one of the same product because the price is right and I need something to hold me over until I find a suitable commercial version.
You get what you pay for!
April 21, 2016
I was so hopeful that my jewelry would look like it just came from the jewelry store but after multiple tries in the cleaner it was only barely clean. With this being said my jewelry was very dirty. I tried cleaning two rings, a necklace and a bracelet. When I received my jewelry cleaner machine I had not received the Blitz Gem & Jewelry Cleaner Concentrate yet (I added a drop of blue Dawn detergent). Perhaps this will make a difference. I am hopeful.

August 15, 2015
Overall this little guy was pretty good, and while it didn't clean everything I expected, it's still a pretty useful tool. Basically, if there is heavy buildup, it didn't do so well, even after multiple cycles.It performed well on various pairs of glasses, getting out the dirt and algae build-up with just water and a couple of cycles. I had some articles of silver that cleaned well too.It didn't do so well on a couple of retainers that I had. Even with a bit of dishwashing soap and multiple cycles, there wasn't any noticable improvement in stain removal or build-up. I also had some various coins I tried to clean for fun, but they didn't come out any better.The machine itself works quietly and is easy to clean. The one clean cycle on this model was too short. It tends to heat up after a few cylces, don't know if that's normal, but I was afraid to run it more. I would probably buy one with a larger capacity next time, as well as a model with different,longer cycle lengths.
May Die Forever After a Few Months
June 12, 2015
This cleaner seemed to work fairly well: it was simple to use, cleaned things, and was a breeze to operate. However, the device suddenly quit working after a cycle (I generally ran it twice). I had plugged it in, filled it with water, added the object to be cleaned, turned it on, and left the room. A few minutes after the cycle completed (I had gotten distracted), I went to run the cycle again (only for a portion as the device does have a "Stop" button) but it wouldn't start. I emptied the device, let it dry for a week, then tried operating it again but it was still unable to start.I'm giving this three stars as it did work as intended for a while and my issue may only be an anomaly (given the abundance of other positive reviews).

Does OK but didn't clean copper very well , not overly impressed with the product .
A bit more polishing agent would help
July 20, 2016
Does not polish with ease. I have an old jewelers cloth to measure this new one against and this new one definitely has less polishing agent and thereby less polishing ability. Was hoping for a better product. I tried it on my silverware and my brassware and found it unacceptable.
... but actually the quality is not the same I wasted my money
April 4, 2016
I used them to clean my jewelry always but actually the quality is not the same I wasted my money, not recommendable at all!!!
Not effective. Does not polish.
September 18, 2017
You will only see a difference on a very dirty ring. We use this on platinum, gold, silver and copper (rose gold). It won't polish, but will only cleans out the dirt. If you add solution, then it works a lot better. With that being said, you can get the same result by use a microfiber and clean the jewelries with the solution. It's faster and it does not take much effort at all. I am keeping it, but wouldn't recommend it. It does not add value as it does not save you time or money.
Not for Me
January 29, 2017
I was excited by previous reviews, but when I received the item and tried it out, I saw that it really didn't do much of anything. I followed the directions carefully. It emitted the blue light and made some bubbling noises. I guess it cleaned off some dirt from my gold necklace, but forget anything silver. It does nothing for tarnish. I was very disappointed, and returned the item.
Why all the good reviews?? Disappointed in this
November 13, 2016
This does work well well for gold, which comes out nice and shiny. But lousy on silver. Even with several cleanings, all of the dirt around the lenses and nose piece was still there. I will get some solution. I did use dish soap but didn't seem to make a difference.
September 3, 2016
Maybe I bought the one that doesn't work...it did not clean not one piece of jewelry I have. I don't know if it is too late to send back. I have been busy on some volunteer projects and really do not have time to return this right now. Disappointed.
Not good for an amateur
June 11, 2015
I'm not anywhere close to professional regarding jewelry, but this doesn't work as well as I had expected. The other reviewers seem to know more, so I assume that my use - it's just not made for removing tarnish from silver. I'm sure that it's safer on stones, and maybe metal in general than the fast chemical stones, but I wanted a quick fix, and this wasn't it. I tried adding detergent and even packs of that suggested additive to the water, but it really made no difference, the water wasn't even dirty.
Waste of money.
April 15, 2015
Not worth the money. I get my rings cleaner with plain old soap and water and a soft toothbrush. I put my mom's old wedding ring set in the ultrasonic cleaner and cleaned for two 3 minute cycles. Not much happened. Then I put the same rings in hot soapy water and all sorts of dirt came off. I wanted to return it but I had misplaced the part that holds watches.

I Think I Received a Defective Cloth
April 5, 2017
I am sorry to say that this did not work at all on silver. I tried it on a tiny vase that is trimmed in tarnished sterling silver. Nothing. I tried it on the lid of a small brass ewer that needs cleaning. Nothing. I then tried cleaning a 1925 silver dollar that is moderately tarnished. I rubbed, and rubbed, and rubbed and only a very little bit of the tarnish came off. I think that it would probably take about three hours of hard rubbing to totally clean it up.Maybe it's just me, but I think that's a little too much work.I think that what is supposed to be the polishing side of this cloth was not treated fully or at all with the silver cleaning chemicals. I know it's only $6.99, but I am returning it. Thank goodness Amazon makes that very easy.

July 2, 2017
I tried to like this item but unfortunately it did not work for me. I had to run several cycles to get my jewelry clean. If any part of my jewelry was overlapping and not touching the base of the tray it would not get cleaned. I also found I had to clean it with a clean cloth anyway after removing my jewelry from the machine in order to get it clean so it almost felt like double the work.
Does absolutely nothing for silver.
April 10, 2017
Does absolutely nothing. I did several experiments using it on silver. Including using it with a cleaning solution. There was NO CHANGE between just the cleaning solution and the cleaning solution with this product. I can't speak to how it works for other items -- it's possible that it's great for something like cleaning your glasses, but I can't see why you wouldn't just use water/a cloth?Thankfully, I was able to get my money back.
Good until it breaks down within a few days
February 26, 2017
This was pretty good... if this lasted more than a few days.I got this last week and used it I think a total of 9 times before the soft buzzing noise became a loud buzzing noise which seems to have lost its ability to clean anything. I used to see vibration on the water surface but ever since it became a loud buzzing noise, nothing is happening to the water and seems like nothing is happening.
February 21, 2017
I am suprised how much people raved about this item. It did absolutely nothing. I noticed a hum, a microscope movement in the water and that is it. I tried the appliance 4-5 times, just to make sure with the same result. Nothing was cleaned by this product.
Stopped working after 3rd use
September 22, 2016
Stopped working after 3rd use. Put item I was cleaning in, turned on, did it's thing for 60 seconds - repeated that 3 times - went to use it again, and does nothing - no led, no vibrate. Lasted 180 seconds total.
This is a waste of $30
August 28, 2016
This product did nothing. The jewelry was exactly the same when it came out, except wet. It made a little buzzing noise when I pressed 'on' but peering in, the water didn't even move. I tried adding soap as suggested. Nothing. This is a waste of $30. Do not buy it.
