How to clean CZ stones? 

Among the various methods present for cleaning the CZ stones. Here are the two most common and easy ones:

Method 1

Clean the CZ stones

Following are the steps involved in the first method of cleaning CZ stones,

Step 1

Warm water is made into a detergent solution by mixing a portion of detergent for doing dishes. The process has very reasonable needs, a dish detergent and lukewarm water. 

People might want to be perfectionists and ask what exact ratio the water and detergent to be mixed. So here’s the news, it’s nothing specific! A rough idea, though, will be a ratio of 2:1::Water: Detergent. 

Step 2

For this step, get a toothbrush adorned with extremely soft bristles. This brush is brought to use in scrubbing the CZ stones. The stones should be sunken down into the detergent solution to get the right amount of wet. 

Step 3

Go ahead and get the sunken stones out. Use the soft-bristled brush on the wet stones. If they aren’t already sunk, get your brush and take a dunk in the detergent solution. Use this brush to scrub your CZ crystals. This scrubbing will help you get rid of any debris or dirt on the stone. The process will leave you with a very vibrant shine.

Step 4 (Hack)

In case of a shortage on the toothbrush with soft bristles, you can go ahead and bring to use the brushes from your cosmetic collection. They have been found to work very precisely as well. 

Step 5

The next step is the rinsing of the CZ stones scrubbed with the brush. You need to keep it in mind. No soap residues are left in the CZ stones (A very important point to remember!) Ensure you do not let the tap off until all the water runs crystal clear from the CZ stones.

Step 6

Followed by all the scrubbing and holding down under running water, it’s finally time to dry it off by dabbing a soft cloth on it. Make sure the cloth is clean. The stones should be free from all the moisture in this important yet last step. 

Method 2

CZ stone Soaking Method

Step 1

You grab the head start by making a solution of water and detergent. This method is used when a routine clean-up for the CZ stones does not work out. You have to let your CZ stones soak in the solution. The solution can be prepared by adding three parts of water to one part of the detergent. 

Step 2

After forming the detergent to water mixture, you are now free to submit your CZ stones into the mixture. You have to make sure that they are fully submerged in the solution. When it comes to the soaking time for CZ stones, nobody can provide you with a fixed interval. It is always good to take a few minutes before taking the next step.

Step 3

Get your CZ stones out of the sunken depths. The need to now get rinsed and dried. The next step includes showing the stones to the water coming out of a faucet. Keep them there till the CZ stones are rid of any remains of the detergent. Now you can use dry clothes to pat the CZ stones. 

Step 4

When you have completed both the cleaning and soaking process on your CZ stones, you are sure to restore the shine. If, in any case, the shine does not return, it might be time to get it checked by a professional.
