Our jewelry cleaners have a recommended shelf life of one year. They have been tested with a shelf life of two years. This should be considered in terms of your inventory commitment and product development planning.

As with most consumer products, from sunscreens to eye creams, our products lose efficacy over time. There may be some change to the color or smell, but the product will not become damaging to jewelry, only slightly less effective as time passes.

Clean + Care is only available by ordering online through Clean + Care's online product catalogue. If you are a consumer looking to purchase Clean + Care for your at-home jewelry care needs, please check your local jewelry stores to see if they carry the Clean + Care product line. 

To see what products are safe for pearls, please check out our cleaning charts.

This will depend on the level of cleaning. Start each day with fresh water and fresh solution. Water should be changed when it becomes too dirty to clean. If the jewelry is not too dirty it’s possible to reuse the water multiple times. Do not add an extra Packette to water that has already been used with a Packette. Using fresh water with a new Packette will produce the best results.

Yes, there is a MAX fill line engraved into the steel basin of the ultrasonic.

For the most through cleaning, try to make as much of the jewelry as exposed as possible. To prevent earring backings from getting lost or forgotten you can choose to keep these on. Necklaces should be clasped to prevent tangling during cleaning. Earring hinges are recommended to be open. These can collect grime, oils, sweat, hairspray, etc from wear.

While the formulas in the Gentle Jewelry Cleaner, Foaming Jewelry Cleaner, Sparkle + Shine Stick®, Jewelry + Watch Cleansing Wipes, and Jewelry Cleaner Packettes are very versatile and can be used for a wide range of gemstones and metals, they should not be used on leather, faux leather, wood, feathers, or other fibrous materials. Using “most” jewelry is a common best practice in consumer labeling to have flexibility for any additions or new developments in materials added to your jewelry product lines in the future.

Once an order is placed, an item cannot be added or removed.

An order cannot be cancelled after check out has been completed.

We warrant our jewelry cleaners, polishing cloths, and ultrasonic machines for one year from the date the product ships to you. If you are unsure of when your order shipped, your order number is marked on every carton label, and we can look up your order and tell you the ship date. While our warranty period is for one year, we know many of our customers order product that lasts them well more than one year and do so without experiencing issues. That said, our recommended best practice is to order no more than a 12-month inventory of product.

We do not warrant our acrylic displays. These are exposed to normal wear and tear in stores, which is outside of our control, and we’re not responsible for replacements. If a display was damaged during shipping from our facility, please contact us for a replacement.


Orders will be processed within 1-3 business days. You will receive a shipping confirmation with a tracking number when your order ships.

We ship out of Columbus, Ohio, a central location to a large majority of the United States. Most orders will arrive two business days after the order ships. 

All orders ship directly from our production facility in Columbus, Ohio to your store front. At this time, we only ship FedEx Ground®.

Being in Ohio positions most major cities to be within a two-day shipping frame without the need for expedited shipping.

Our shipping costs factor in multiple things. 

1. We are mainly shipping liquids – which are heavier by nature, resulting in higher costs than shipping flatter or less dense items

2. We ship in a way that is extremely safe for the products. We do this to maintain our standard of minimal breakage/quality incidents across all shipments and to deliver the product in the highly quality possible.

3. Although our warehouse is a central location of around a 2-day ship window, distance from our warehouse in Columbus, Ohio is factored into final shipping costs.

If the shipping expense is a concern, you may want to look at purchasing lighter items like one of our Polishing Cloths or a lighter cleaner like the Sparkle + Shine® Sticks (a case weighs ~1 lb.).

We do currently ship to Canada, excluding Quebec. At this time, Clean + Care does not ship internationally. Our private-label brand DOES ship internationally and could be a solution for carrying jewelry cleaner in your store. To learn more, click here

When you ship with us using our FedEx account, your shipment is full-service. If there is damage, we will replace your product first and handle the issue with FedEx on our end. This is one of the services we provide when you place an order with us.
