Karen Hemmerle who polished a bunch of Honduran Opal tonight and has chrome oxide fingers!
I’ve found a great help in looking more presentable after a good
session with chrome oxide or rouge. (Heloise would be proud) Those
non-scratching pot scrubbers crocheted from nylon netting strips.
Work wonders cleaning jewelry between steps, too. I use a new one for
dishes til it’s worn floppy then retire it to my jewelry/hand cleaning
tasks; effective and gentle. Just a dab of Dawn or what have you will
do the trick.
