Sparkle Spa – jewelry deep down cleaning by using ultrasonic waves

jewelry_cleaningThe Sparkle Spa will give your jewelry a deep down clean by using ultrasonic waves. It uses 42,000 Hz of ultrasonic waves, or “cavitations” per second to get the glitter back in the earrings or the shine back in your rings. With this technology, your jewelry will always come out shining and sparkling without losing your time or patience. You can clean your jewelry, eyeglasses, dentures, and even your old pens. You only need to use regular water. However, if your jewelry needs an extra bit of help, you may add a drop of dishwasher soap or a cleaning solution that can be bought from the manufacturer.
The Sparkle Spa has a built-in stainless steel tank, which has a capacity for up to 16 oz. There is a bright LED so you know that it is in the process of making your gems shine. If you’re still not convinced, the lid of the Sparkle Spa is transparent so you can see the cleaning action take place. There is even an electronic push button timer which allows for a 3-minute automatic shut off. Included is a basket that is used to hold any item or items that may need to be cleaned.

  • Electronic push button timer with 3 minute automatic shutoff
