@slytherinvixen:  I drop into the local jeweller where my ring came from whenever I’m in the area for a cleaning. But also, they gave FI a cleaning solution and kit with the ring that he then gave me that I use to clean it about once a week at home.

I read somewhere that you can use toothpaste but, apparently, that is terrible for gold as gold is so much softer than a diamond. I really wish I would have found this out before trying it a couple times…so I don’t have a great suggestion, just avoid toothpaste.

When I clean mine at home I use a baby toothbrush (Spongebob themed, if we’re gettin’ technical Tongue Out) and dish soap. Sometimes I let it soak in a bowl of warm soapy water for a while before I scrub it. Otherwise my ring goes back to my jeweler every few months for a cleaning and inspection.

You might find some info in this recent thread: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/do-you-clean-your-ring#axzz2uunOCsI0

I clean mine daily with a baby toothbrush and diluted non-ammonia Mr.Clean (put in jar with solution before taking a shower, scrub after I’m out) and dry with a microfiber glass cleaning cloth (no lint!). Once a week/two weeks I’ll do an overnight soak with Dawn followed by the Mr.Clean and if I’m in a rush I’ll do a quick spray of Sparkle Sparkle and rinse with hot water.

Most importantly: ALWAYS keep the sink plugged! 🙂

My jeweller gives us cleaner (and free replacements) and told me to soak is all night, every night. It’s actually Connoisseurs, which you can get at Target for a few bucks. Make sure you don’t use anything with ammonia if you have white gold!

@slytherinvixen:  you can walk into any jewelry store and get your jewelry cleaned.  I’ve done it many times before.  Mine does come with a cleaning every 6 months and I have them sign off on the card.  I’m obsessed with my jewelry always being clean so this is what I do….

 

I used an old ultrasonic toothbrush head and some soap/jewelry cleaner.  Get a small bowl with soap, let it soak for however long and take the toothbrush, give another quick cleaning, and rinse that baby.  I never though to use my ultrasonic toothbrush, but love the results.  I also have an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner that I use when I have time to let her Soak. 🙂

Warm water, hand soap, and a baby toothbrush. Works great! I clean my ring at least once a week.

To be perfectly honest? I don’t do anything to clean it, short of it getting inadvertantely cleaned when I wash my hands or take a shower.

i try to have it professionally steam cleaned once or twice a year. but in between, i use a container of jewelry cleaner i bought years ago. i toss it in with my diamond studs and let them soak for like, an hour. then i scrub them all with the little brush it came with, and rinse them with warm water. works like a charm!
