How to clean jewelry box lining?

Before starting, make sure the box is free of any jewelry. As you clean and remove stains from the lining, there’s a risk that some might transfer onto your jewelry. This can damage or even ruin your precious pieces, so it’s important to work with a clean surface to avoid such mishaps.

Once you’ve made sure your box is devoid of all its contents, it’s time for you to start cleaning!

Remove any loose debris

Next, remove any loose dirt and debris that may have accumulated in the lining. Use a soft brush to carefully sweep out dirt, hair, dust and other grime until it’s completely clean. Make sure you don’t damage the lining as you do this! If there are stains on your jewelry box lining (like makeup or lotion), try to identify what they’re made of so that you can treat them appropriately when cleaning.

Check the box

If your jewelry box has a plastic liner, remove it and set aside. If you don’t see any sign of a plastic liner, skip to step 3.

Look for a label with instructions

If you can’t find the label, you may be able to find information online. The product might have been sold by a company that has a website where they provide instructions on how to care for their products. If the manufacturer doesn’t have any information about caring for your jewelry box lining, try searching “how do I clean my [product name]?” or “how do I clean my [product type]?”.

If you want to clean your jewelry box lining with synthetic fabrics, use dish soap and warm water. You can also use a soft brush, toothbrush, and soft cloth to dry the box.

Your jewelry box lining is likely made of fabric or plastic mesh. If it’s made of fabric, use a soft brush to wipe down the lining inside your jewelry box before placing it back in its position inside of your jewelry chest. If it’s made of plastic mesh, simply wash with warm water and let them air dry before placing them back into their respective positions in your jewelry chest.

For a cotton or linen lining, try using a 50% peroxide and 50% water solution to gently clean any discoloration on the interior lining. Peroxide is a bleaching agent, so it will remove stains and brighten your jewelry box lining.

Determine the lining

Determine whether there are any stains still present on the lining. If you can see a stain on your jewelry box lining, you may be able to remove it with some effort.

Look at and feel the lining for any spots or other discolorations of a different color than the rest of your box’s interior. Determine what caused these stains—if it was oil from an oily cloth, for example—and decide whether or not you’d like to clean them off completely (many people choose not too).

If there are stains still present, try to identify what they’re made of (like makeup or lotion). If the stain is makeup, use a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol. If it’s lotion, use a soft cloth and rubbing alcohol. If it’s perfume, use a soft cloth and water. And if the stain is oil-based like lipstick or lip gloss, use water alone on a soft cloth to remove it since oil doesn’t get along well with any kind of soap.

Brush away dirt with a soft brush

Brush away dirt with a soft brush before attempting to clean the lining of the jewelry box. This will remove any loose particles that could scratch the lining as you wipe it down. Make sure you’re using a soft brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner, since it’s more effective at removing dust and debris than cleaning tools designed for hard surfaces such as floors or upholstery.

Use a gentle vacuum cleaner

If your jewelry box lining is particularly dirty, use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment to gently remove any dirt. Be sure not to use a rotating brush attachment on the lining; this could cause damage.

Conclusion

The best way to care for your jewelry is by keeping your jewelry box clean and organized!
