As long as you asked for one and she’s not suggesting you need to smarten up your act…

LOL :)

No I did ask for one.
Just doing some of Louise's earrings at the moment to check it out.

I mainly wanted it for some watch bracelets.

^^^^ Whatever you do, don’t say “you wouldn’t believe the amount of dirt I got off those”

You might not see Christmas.

That’s really cool! I’m sure you’ll discover more applications for it beyond watch bracelets.

It kinda looks like a crockpot. :lol:

Very true, you could probably do a lovely stew in that....an Irish stew of course :)

my advice: you still may want to use a soft bristle toothbrush afterward on a bracelet. some dirt may be "loosened" but not flushed out. same with some jewelry. i have a thin inset in my wedding band that i still brush out after cleaning.

I took off the expandable bracelet from my Dad's C3 SGW MK2 today to give it a good run in the ultrasonic cleaner.
I noticed it had a lot of caked in dirt in the intricate parts of the expandable bracelet.
I had to remove a load of links recently as he had lost some weight and the watch was spinning around on his wrist so no use to him at all, that's when I spotted the dirt.

I used a healthy dose of washing up liquid and some very hot water and ran it for 8 minutes.

It came up amazing, literally like new !
I am very happy with the results.
I also cleaned the watch, just a lightly moist cloth.

My Dad will be delighted with it now.

Clean as a whistle, Ferg. Almost looks brand new. Top notch. :clap: :clap:

I note that you haven't posted a 'before' photo; maybe that was wise. :wink: :wink:
