WHAT’S A SIMPLE, EASY TO USE ULTRASONIC CLEANER?

Out of all the personal ultrasonic cleaners we sell, the simplest, most durable, and easy to use unit has to be the Bransonic B200. Here are a few reasons why:

  •  Simple operation. One button to turn it on and off.
  •  Turn it on, it runs for 5 minutes, then shuts off automatically.
  •  An incredible dependability history. We have sold literally thousands of these over the last 10 years – reported failures are almost non-existent
  •  2 year replacement warranty

This ultrasonic cleaner comes with a cover, basket, and a sample of our jewelry cleaning powder. You can purchase this unit as the base item, complete package, or gift pack.
 

CAN I CLEAN MY DENTURES WITH ULTRASONICS?

The answer is a resounding “YES!”. Denture cleaning is a great application for ultrasonics due to the technology’s ability to clean even the tiniest nooks and crannies. Not only will ultrasonics clean your dentures at a microscopic level, but it will also save you hundreds of hours in soaking and scrubbing! We offer the SonicBrite denture cleaning system, which not only cleans, but also disinfects! You can also combine our Smile Again Denture Powder with any of our fine personal ultrasonic cleaners to create a denture cleaning system of your own!
 

WHAT ELSE CAN MY ULTRASONIC JEWELRY CLEANER CLEAN?

Ultrasonics can be used for a wide variety of cleaning applications, not just jewelry! While we offer many “ultrasonic jewelry cleaners”, these units can be used to clean a wide variety of other household objects as well. Some examples are:

  • clock parts
  • fishing reels
  • dentures
  • metal parts
  • coins
  • engine parts
  • glasses
  • electric shaver heads

Any hard-surfaced object can be cleaned with ultrasonics. However, ultrasonics will not remove most things that require a solvent, such as paint and shellac, and you also cannot remove burned on carbon. Sonics will also not remove tarnish from silver, as this is an oxidization of the metal and not a separate soil.


WHAT KIND OF CLEANING SOLUTION DO I PUT IN MY JEWELRY CLEANER?

When it comes to cleaning solutions for your ultrasonic jewelry cleaner, we have you covered. All of the ultrasonic cleaning concentrates we offer are free rinsing, non-toxic, and mix with water to create a professional grade jewelry cleaning liquid!

Our longest lasting jewelry cleaning concentrate would have to be the GemOro cleaning solution, of which one quart will make up to 40 gallons of solution! If ease of use and storage is what you’re after, our CleanoSonic powder is the perfect choice.

 
HOW DO I CLEAN MY PEARLS?

Ultrasonics is one of the single, best ways of cleaning most pieces of jewelry. Unfortunately, pearls are not included in that description. Now that’s not to say ultrasonics can’t clean pearls, quite the opposite actually. Since pearls are what is called a “soft” gemstone, powerful ultrasonics can actually etch them, ruining their luster.

Luckily we offer a great alternative to ultrasonic cleaning in the form of our specialty pearl cleaner!


HOW DO I REMOVE TARNISH FROM MY SILVER JEWELRY?

Many people with silver jewelry who purchase an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner become upset because the unit wont remove silver tarnish. While the ultrasonics will remove every last speck of debris from your silver, it wont remove tarnish. This is because tarnish is actually a chemical reaction on the silver itself, and not a soil that can simply be washed away.

Luckily, we offer a solution for smaller pieces of silver jewelry. With our silver cleaner, you simply place your earrings, rings, or necklace into the integrated cleaning basket, swirl it around a few times, and take your bright clean silver out!
