With the United States battling a pandemic, we have needed to change so many everyday behaviors to keep our communities safe and healthy. Aside from increased handwashing, more people are using hand sanitizer at an increased rate while wearing jewelry
. Hand sanitizer is an effective disinfecting solution when it comes to health and safety; however, it is often questioned whether using hand sanitizer could damage clothing or possessions, including jewelry
. With the increase in hand sanitizer usage, it’s essential for people who wear rings and other jewelry
to be mindful of the effects of disinfecting agents on precious metals and gemstones.
Hand sanitizer is proven to be tough on germs, but it can also be tough on precious metals and jewelry
. Sanitizer will not cause damage to jewelry
immediately but it will make a serious impact over time. Cleaning products
and hand sanitizer cause the shine in gold
to fade over time. You might not notice this fading right away, but the gradual effect of hand sanitizer will eventually take its toll and cause your jewelry
to fade more rapidly.
