Cleaning stone beads

  • Immerse stones beads in warm, soapy water and scrub them gently with a soap brush. Then rinse the beads and place them on a soft towel to dry.
  • Most stone beads can be ultrasonic cleaned as well. Please note: beads that are dyed or organic (amber, bone, coral, ivory, opal pearls or turquoise, for example) can be damaged if cleaned in an ultrasonic cleaner. Also, dyed stones should not be steam-cleaned.
