Cleaning Those Gritty Beads

We have received an email or two over time about how some of our African Vinyl Disc Beads are authentically gritty (ahem: dirty). As they are one of my favorite materials to work with right now, I decided to test out a few different cleaning methods and determine which works best.

First up was a good ol’ soaking in warm water and dish soap followed by a rinse in a strainer. It removed a lot of dirt but still left the beads looking a bit dull.
