I wanted to talk about the Housmile Ultrasonic Cleaner. Small in size which makes it easy to store and doesn’t take up much room on your kitchen or bathroom counter. Ultrasonic cleaners make the task of maintaining the luster of your jewelry really easy. The good thing about ultrasonic cleaners is that they can clean the parts of your jewelry that are otherwise unreachable when using more conventional methods. Ultrasonic cleaning is a process that uses ultrasound (usually from 20–400 kHz) and an appropriate cleaning solvent (sometimes ordinary tap water) to clean items. The ultrasound can be used with just water, but the use of a solvent appropriate for the item to be cleaned and the type of soiling present enhances the effect. Ultrasonic cleaning uses cavitation bubbles induced by high-frequency pressure (sound) waves to agitate a liquid. The agitation produces high forces on contaminants adhering to substrates like metals, plastics, glass, rubber, and ceramics. This action also penetrates blind holes, cracks, and recesses. The intention is to thoroughly remove all traces of contamination tightly adhering or embedded onto solid surfaces. Objects must not be allowed to rest on the bottom of the device during the cleaning process, because that will prevent cavitation from taking place on the part of the object, not in contact with the solvent.
So You don’t want to pay all that money for Jewelry Cleaner. Well, I really didn’t either. So I did some research and found a couple of formulas.
Now here’s what I used in the Housmile Ultrasonic Cleaner. Most formulas will state 2 cups of water, Teaspoon of ammonia (I used 2), 2 Tablespoons of dish soap. Most of the websites/blogs you pull up will tell you not to use dish soap with sodium lauryl LOL but never tell you why. So I had to look this up. What is it? Can I put this in the Housmile Ultrasonic Cleaner? Besides, there is stuff on the internet talking health issues. But this stuff is in a lot of dish soap and others. Good Luck finding one without it. Unless you go to 5 different stores. Or online and you don’t always get the ALL ingredients on the back of the bottle. So what is it? Sodium Lauryl is what’s called a “surfactant.” This means it lowers the surface tension between ingredients, which is why it’s used as a cleansing and foaming agent. Now I thought ok maybe you don’t use because the Ultrasonic Cleaner would create a lot of bubbles. Nope, It didn’t do that. I couldn’t find any reason online why not to use it. But I did find a chemical breakdown on two websites that mention using sodium lauryl. So I went with it. And used Dawn Platinum.
And do I have to say I was very amazed by the Housmile Ultrasonic Cleaner. I did one cycle and thought it might need one more. I’m new to this. I wanted sparkle. After reading the handbook. I opt for the Degas option. Which works for 800ms and stops for 200ms and keeps the cycle this way.
And my jewelry looks great. I’m so done with the toothbrush. The Housmile Ultrasonic Cleaner is a cute little gem with a lot of cleaning power. If you’ve been thinking about purchasing an ultrasonic cleaner then you should check out the Housmile Ultrasonic Cleaner.
I posted a picture of it next to a standard cake stand so you can get the idea of its size.
