Hi folks, I have read everything I could find in the previous posts about cleaning and the possibility of an ingredient in the solution loosening the shellac on the balance and pallet jewels. I have gotten confused. Is it acetone that you don’t want in the cleansing solution if you include the above mentioned jewels; and is it Isopropryl Alcohol you don’t want in the rinse, for the same reason? Or is it a matter of the time that you suspend these jeweled parts in the cleanser and the rinse that makes the difference? I am going to try the cleanser that has Murphys’, bleach, and acetone. and final rinse w/ alcohol to dry. I am open to any suggestions requiring change if it will insure i don’t loosen the jewels–this would be trouble I don’t need. If I am not clear here, I will post again after I get a few responses. Thanks a lot folks. Take care………………….bJanuary 24, 2013 at 11:37 am #52694

I know nothing about jewels but I do work with shelac about every day. Shellac is cut or thined with alchol, so it would make since to me that would also release the jewels.January 25, 2013 at 10:29 pm #52698david pierceParticipant
