    Windex and a toothbrush – jeweler swears by it. I get asked constantly how often I clean my ring, it really makes it sparkle.

    I do diluted non-ammonia Mr.Clean and baby toothbrush every morning, and a weekly/bi-weekly overnight soak in Dawn solution. If I’m in a hurry I sometimes use Sparkle Sparkle for gold, but in my opinion Mr.Clean does the best job out of them all. 🙂

    Once I reset my stone into a platinum setting I will also give Windex a try.

    I don’t use dish soap, I actually use diluted laundry detergent (Wisk) and then brush it with a baby toothbrush. 2 parts detergent, 3 parts water. It’s actually what my jeweler recommended and my ring is always glittery!

    @lenabee:  1 part ammonia to 3 parts water in a shot glass, let it sit about 5 minutes, then go over it with a soft toothbrush.

    I have an ultrasonic ring cleaner I bought from amazon for ~$25. I drop it in there once a week and three minutes later it looks great Smile

    @lenabee:  Windex and toothbrush and then a quick q-tip swab if needed to get closer to the stone and dry it.

    I bought “my jewelry cleaner” from a wedding expo.  I was using dawn and a tooth brush, but after they cleaned it with their solution my ring looked amazing, and it’s all organic natural ingredients.  Best $30 purchase ever.

    @DaniDev143:  yes, it might be me, but I actually think the ring stays clean longer after Mr.Clean than after any of the other options, including the pricey Sparkle Sprakle. 🙂

    I use hand soap soap and a soft toothbrush to wash it and a piece of very soft toilet paper to dry and polish it.  Works like a charm every time!

    @lenabee:  I go ring shopping 🙂 Every time I walk into a jeweler they offer to clean it for free. So, whenever I need it cleaned, I go window shopping for a bit and see if there’s anything new that I simply HAVE to have 🙂
