Shell necklaces never seem to go out of style. They look good with just about any ensemble for either gender. Shell necklaces can accumulate dirt and grime from day-to-day wear. Perfumes, colognes and body sprays can also leave a film or residue on your shell necklace. Cleaning a shell necklace is easy to do and well worth it, to prevent the necklace from accumulating germs and keep it looking new.

Things You'll Need

Pour a cup of bleach and a cup of water into a bowl.

Place the necklace in the bowl, making sure that it is completely submerged. Allow the necklace to soak for at least 5 minutes.

Use a toothbrush to clean between the shells. Any residual dirt and debris should come off easily now.

Rinse the necklace in the sink under running water.

Pat the necklace dry with a clean, dry cloth and set it aside to air dry completely.
