Every few days I just run mine under warm water and then polish it gently with a microfiber cloth which seems to make it shine! I’ve had my ring for just a little over a month now and I haven’t actually cleaned it more extensively than that.

I usually clean mine once a week or two when I think of it.  I just have a little jar of jewelry cleaner with a tray in it.  I throw the ring and my diamond earrings in and swish it around a little. 

I take my ring off when I’m working in the kitchen and if I’m cleaning or if I’ve been exercising which seems to help, too.

I registered for an actual jewelry cleaning machine… I hope I get it 🙂

I wash mine once a week. I put it into a shot glass with some Mr. Clean in it (recommended by my jeweler) and every couple of weeks use a baby toothbrush to clean under the prongs etc.

I clean mine every other day.  The store that he got the ring from gave me a jar of cleaner and told me to get a toddler’s toothbrush to clean it with. They said to get under the stone at least everyother day.  It stays beautifully sparkly all the time.

Hi Ladies,

 

My jeweler recommended cleaning the ring with a baby toothbrush and windex- it shines like crazy afterwards.

About once a week for me in very hot water and dish soap with a soft toothbrush.

I think there was a post somewhere on here that had a bajillion methods and frequencies for cleaning your ring.  Some of them were quite interesting, like soaking in a cup of warm vinegar (I tried it, not too bad) and toothpaste (haven’t tried this yet).

I’ve had my ring since August and every 2-3 days I’ll gently scrub it with an old toothbrush while/after I wash my hands with regular soap.  My 3-years-married sister asked what my secret was.  I’ve noticed lately that her ring seems much shinier than its been for awhile.

I clean mine every few days with windex.  Does the trick everytime!

I use windex too, but nothing makes it sparkle like a store steam cleaning!!

I use toothpaste and a soft toothbrush (about every other week)- nice and sparkly!

I have an emerald cut diamond that seems to look cloudy if it isn’t cleaned frequently.  So, I clean it every few days. I bought an inexpensive sonic cleaner, so I can keep it as clean as a jewelry store cleaning. I’m thinking about getting an ultra-sonic cleaner though, because the one I have is falling apart.

I use an extra soft toothbrush to get under the stones. I’ve used windex, tooth paste, and jewelry cloths on them, and all of them seem to work beautifully on them.

I use Connossieur’s (sp?) jewelry cleaner.  It is the BEST! You can purchase it at Wal-Mart for 4.99.  It is in a red tube-like bottle. When you take off the top there is a toothbrush attached. Just brush the gel on your ring and in all the crevices..then rinse with warm water.  The sparkle and shine are AMAZING! I get so many compliments on it.  I use it every 3-4 days.

Another cleaning method was told to me by my jeweler.  Equal parts of dishsoap, warm water, and white vinegar.  Soak the ring for 10 minutes then brush with a toothbrush and rinse under warm water.  That works amazingly well too!
