Is this any good for cleaning greasy eyeglasses?

A couple reviews were misleading. Here’s the guidance straight from the manual on this question and it was bolded:
– glasses / sunglasses with pre-existing scratches or cracks in the coating are not suitable for ultrasonic cleaning. Ultrasonic cleaning is only suitable for cleaning frames.
– antique jewelry, jewelry containing loose stones, and jewelry containing soft / porous stones like pearls, emeralds, amber and opal should not be cleaned in the ultrasonic cleaner. If you are unsure about whether you should use the ultrasonic cleaner on your specific type of jewelry, please consult your local jeweler.’

i ruined a pair of glasses. If you have even the slightest, think almost invisible, crack in the coating or a break in it where the lenses meet the frames (very hard to detect), the ultrasonic cleaner will vigorously attack these defects and start to strip away the entire coating, thereby trashing your glasses. If your lenses are coated with anything, follow the manufacturer’s advice and do not use an ultrasonic cleaner.

The manual calls ‘to celan watches with less than 30 mts of watterproof depth ‘ does this mean that if i have a 50 mts it is not suitable?

The short answer is that regardless of the mis-worded/backwards instructions in the manual, you should never ever submerge any watch in an ultrasonic cleaner, period. The entire purpose of the ultrasonic cleaner is to aggressively drive water into the tiniest of crevices to clean out debris. The sealing gaskets for watches are not designed with ultrasonic cleaners in mind. Even diving watches are not tested against such aggressive environments. The ratings on non-diving watches are for brief submersions in static environments when brand new. With age the o-rings degrade. The seal around the stem isn’t very tight to start with, and after a battery change the seal for the back is rarely very robust. No watch maker is likely to endorse using an ultrasonic cleaner on their watch. For more info on what the rating on the watch means, look at:

What are 5 preset cleaning cycles?

Preset cleaning cycles is a fancy term for how many seconds the machine is set to run – 90, 180, 280, 380 and 480 seconds.

Anyone have a solution that they think i should use for this for best answers

I use simple green or fast orange combined with warm (not hot) water in a 50/50 ration. This works best (for me) over any other cleaning solution combo for jewelry. I then rinse in clean water and use a can of compressed air (the kind you use for computer keyboards) to blow dry diamonds and give it that extra sparkle.

Will the basket hold a whole pair of glasses for cleaning? Or do you have to clean half the glasses at a time?

My glasses definitely don’t fit in the basket and even with the basket out they don’t completely fit either. My glasses are not oversized.

Has anyone used this product to make liposomal vitamin c? And did you like it?

What program do you put it on for liposome vitamin c?

2. Will it operate with the top open in order to fit a larger item (and flip it over to clean other side)?

It will work with its top open .

Does it remove tarnish

No – it only removes dirt, grime, oils, etc. You need a chemical reaction to remove tarnish, so after cleaning you’ll need to used silver polish, or polishing clothes soaked with silver polish.

Can i use it in 220v?

Whats so funny about this question? A lot of devices are auto switcheable from 110v to 240v or 220v. Thats why i think alex asked this question. Don’t turn it into something sarcastic. It is a very legitimate question and by the way, the answer can just be a yes or a no…. No need to say in the way you said it.

Would it be safe to clean tiffany jewelries?

Ultrasonic cleaners are safe for most precious metals including gold, silver and platinum. Some soft stones such as opals, pearls, emeralds, etc should not be cleaned in an ultrasonic cleaner! Diamonds, sapphires, garnets and other hard stones are okay. If it’s plain tiffany’s jewelry with no stones you should be fine. If it has stones you need to evaluate if the stones will fair well or not. With silver you might need to also use a silver tarnish cloth to rub down after using the cleaner. Silver can be stubborn. If you have loose settings or pave set stones you may wish to avoid too much ultrasonic cleaning. A good cleaner and a soft tooth brush should do the trick in that case.

Some say you can clean tarnished silver and some of you say no, so those of you who did remove tarnish, what did you add to the water?

Ammonia can cause sterling to turn black! Also, detergents (dish soap) are quite harsh, and can be difficult to remove from porous metals. Ammonia can cause pock marks in the metal, and then the detergent can build up in the pock marks, eventually causing corrosion. The best way to remove tarnish is with a chemical reaction caused by silver polish (sodium carbonate). First clean jewelry with the ultrasonic cleaner, then remove off the tarnish with sodium carbonate or sodium bicarbonate.

Is it safe to clean pave design jewelry?

I have cleaned my micro pave engagement ring and wedding ring many times and it works amazingly!!! No problems here – only awesome results.

Can i clean pearls in this?

The proper way to clean pearls is to wet a clean soft hand towel ring out excess water and very gently pull the strand of pearls through the cloth holding the cloth completely around the pearls to get all the sides clean. This should be done after wearing them then lay them on dry soft towel to air dry. Never expose your pearls to hair spray, fragrance, body lotion or any cosmetics. As others have said pearls are very fragile and need to be cared for. They are also strung with silk string and you don’t want to do anything that will shorten the life and cause you to have to restring more often because it it not a low cost repair. Hope this helps. Ps. They can be damaged by metal jewelry so be care how you store them in your jewelry box also.

Can you clean opal jewelry?

Will this be safe for cleaning resin out of my bowl?

91% alcohol will remove resin easily. No need for an ultrasonic cleaner. Just pour the alcohol in and let it soak for 30 minutes. Swish and dump. Just make sure to rinse it well before using it.

My mom’s a barber would this work for cleaning/disinfecting combs and brushes?

It does not disinfect. It removes surface dirt, grime, and sticky substances. After cleansing, you still have to disinfect the tools in barbicide, or a citrus germicidal cleaner, or cleansing alcohol, or hydrocide germicide, etc.

Can you use this for cleaning handgun shells? Tom

I wouldn’t use it to clean live ammo but don’t see how there would be a problem with spent casings.

I was wondering how often can you use this for diamond rings? Can it harm your jewelry using this too much?

Every day, every 5 minutes… Real gold and real diamonds are not affected at all by this. Use all the time if you want. I use mine every day when i do the dishes.

How many megahertz does this put out?

If you read the specs, you would clearly see this is: ‘generates 42,000 hz of ultrasonic sound waves for a powerful yet gentle clean that won’t harm your valuables’.

Can jewelry cleaning fluid be left in basin for multiple uses?

I have been using this unit for cleaning 3d printed resin parts. I have it filled with 99% isopropyl alcohol and although the casing of the unit has shown discoloration from the alcohol, i have seen no problem in leaving the unit filled. I have purchased a second one for just water as a second cleaning step to remove the alcohol. I really like the magnasonic cleaner for my more ‘industrial’ uses. I’m sure it will be well suited for milder cleaning solutions.

Blown away!

I bought this as a late christmas present to myself and although i had a gift card, i would buy it again at full price – worth every penny! The top photo is after just one use and i can’t even remember the last time i cleaned my promise ring. The instructions were so simple, the machine barely makes any noise and it took 5 mins max! I can’t wait to use this on all my precious jewelry, and eventually my engagement ring! I am beyond happy with this purchase. Y’all – do not hesitate to buy one!

Quick, simple, and worth it

This comes in handy in a surprising amount of occasions. It is small, simple to use, and quite effective. My only suggestion is that you don’t use too harsh of chemicals. If you do, don’t leave it in for an extended period of time. I cleaned many things using alcohol in this machine. It worked well, but i made the mistake of leaving it in the machine for a couple of days. This caused the plastic cage inside to become extremely brittle and deformed. However this is hardly the machines fault. It’s more of a user error. A+

Legitimately impressed at how well this cleans not just my nice jewelry but my costume jewelry as well. Got today and i’ve been running it all morning doing batches of everything in my jewelry box. Still needed to use a scrubber and windex on some larger stones but it’s doing a great job.
Running it with dishsoap first and then windex til my liquid jewelry cleaner comes in. Everything looks much happier.

Spent so little to receive so much….

This unit arrived late on saturday and sunday morning i unpacked it and gave it a try. I could not stop putting jewelry in because everything came out so clean and sparkling. I recently lost a diamond in my ring and i had to take it to a jeweler to have the stone replaced. They also repaired the prongs, etc. When i picked it up, it was like having a new ring. So, i looked online so that i might keep my jewels looking like new. After ordering, i went back to the jeweler to pick up my diamond band that i had left for repairs. I talked with the jeweler about their cleaning and asked if they used ultrasound cleaning and she said that they did. So, i told her i had ordered a machine. She said that was good but she said, ‘be careful with your diamond jewelry because the vibrations can cause the diamonds to become loose. Only leave them in for short spurts. If you noticed, when i cleaned (your earrings), i did so in bursts.’ i told her i would be careful and she advised to not leave them in longer than thirty seconds at a time. But to take them out and use a brush to remove the debris. So, i only used 10 seconds on them in cold tap water and they came out great. Most of my items, and i cleaned one at a time, came out great with the 10 second scenario. The more stubborn ones, i added dawn and kept trying, but they did not have stones of any kind.
One bracelet ended up missing a stone, a tiny one, but i think it was missing beforehand. When i emptied the machine, i layered bounty paper towels in the sink to strain the water so that if a stone was in it, i would detect it. There absolutely wasn’t one. It is a very old bracelet that i purchased at an estate sale, and i have already replaced four missing stones. They are cheap rhinestones, but i love that bracelet.

My cleaner was back ordered so i used dawn and warm water and holy cow my earrings i haven’t cleaned since my wedding day (4 years) came out looking like new! I’m so impressed with how this works. It’s so quiet my dog barks at everything and he didn’t even notice i was cleaning my jewelry! Absolute must buy! Will clean with cleaner and will update

Amazing cleaner

Really cleans well. I use hot water and a little dish soap and set the timer to the full 480 seconds. When it ends, i use a soft bristle toothbrush to lightly scrub the jewelry, then run again for 480 seconds. Jewelry comes out sparkling!

Easy to use cleaner

This was a very effective jewelry cleaner. I did use it with a jewelry cleaning solution instead of just water. All of the jewelry that i put in this machine was substantially cleaner and brighter after the longest timed cleaning

Amazing results!

I am truly amazed how well the magnasonic cleaned my gold jewelry. I added water and just a little jewelry cleaner to the water. Afterwards, i wiped each piece thoroughly with a microfiber jewelry cloth and noticed the black residue from having cleaned the jewelry. I have no before pics but trust me, my pieces were horribly filthy. Now they look newly purchased. I used a very soft brush to clean my 100% silver and sterling silver (925 = 92.5 percent silver and 7.5 percent another metal) pieces. To remove tarnish and make my silver pieces shine involved me doing an additional step. This machine is great and is a must have because it enables you to clean many pieces at once.

Great little machine.

Was easy to use. Put in one cup of warm water minimum, a dollop of dish soap and set it for 280 seconds. Dropped in some really gross jewelry and it came out sparkling.
It’s amazing how much body oils, dust and dirt accumulated over time. Cleaned every crack and cranny.

Updated my review from one to four stars!

Update!!! I posted a one star review because the unit failed after five months. However, yesterday i was able to contact the seller where a very nice julie informed me that the unit was under warranty for one year. She said they stand behind their products and would send to me a replacement. Impressed with the customer service for sure, it was delightful to actually speak to a representative and not a far flung call center somewhere which is usually a frustrating waste of time. Upgrading my review… Customer service was five star, but deducting a star because of the original unit failure. Would definitely buy from this seller again!

original one star review: i really liked this unit and it seemed to work well. All of the sudden yesterday when i turned it on, the ‘humming noise’ sounded different and i realized the unit was no longer vibrating and the jewelry was sitting still in the bottom of the basket. The sound it makes now fluctuates from very quiet to intermittently quite loud, but regardless there is no movement. Trying to figure out how to reach customer support now.

Good for glasses

I used this for my jewelry and prescribed glasses it cleans off most of the dirt. I used a dab of soap not too much. One video the machine sounds loud i believe its because of the frequency but it is not that loud in person.

Good little cleaner

As i do not wear much jewelry i purchased this primarily for cleaning my glasses as well as my stainless steel watch bands. It does a pretty good job. I do find that i have to do two cycles as sometimes it doesn’t get everything, especially when cleaning my glasses, but that’s a minor gripe. It’s ridiculously quiet, which is awesome, but i wish it was a little bigger all around. A couple pairs of my frames are larger and do not fit in easily with the basket. I find that i have to either mess around with then to at least get my lens fully submerged or use it without the basket all together. Overall i’m happy with my purchase.

Good for a quick clean

I use this to clean my gundam parts after sanding an before painting. It works well with the only weaknesses being limited capacity and only being able to clean for 480 seconds before stopping. Also be careful when cleaning with isopropyl alcohol as it can strip some of the coating on the cleaner itself.
