    I don’t think you can clean a ring too much. Popping it in the solution while you do your makeup is actually a really good idea! I clean mine about once a week with dish soap and a baby toothbrush. Maybe I’ll get a jar of solution too!

    I get it cleaned at the jeweler’s every 6 months. Other than that… Does the shower count?

    i clean mine about every other month or so. I just soak it in a little window cleaner while i’m in the shower.  When i’m finished with my hair and makeup after my shower, i’ll use a soft toothbrush with a little window cleaner on it and brush the diamond and get the crap out from under it.  It always looks professionally cleaned afterwards.

    I don’t use jewelry cleaner. What is it made out of? Does it have any health effects? Does it cause any buildup? I also don’t rub it with anything abrasive. The diamond won’t get affected at all, that’s for sure, but the metal is much, much softer.

    I rinse my ring in RO water for a few seconds and dry it with a microfiber cloth about once a day, and every few days, I rub a little organic dish detergent on it with my fingertip, and drip it into the nooks and crannies, then soak it in a shot glass of RO water for a minute or so, then rinse with RO water* and dry with a microfiber cloth. Baby gleams!! FI and I had orignally planned to buy a steam cleaner but I no longer feel it’s worthwhile because this method works so well.

    *I keep mentioning that the water is RO because it doesn’t have any particulate in it that could cause water spots or buildup. I don’t know how regular tap water would work.

    @btothez:  I never cleaned my ring until reading about it on the bee. Now I clean it about once a week.

    Oh… i should’ve read the post before voting. I think i’ve only cleaned my ring with cleaner once or twice.

    Mostly I like to use hot water and steam. I’ll the the water run till it’s pretty hot and rinse my ring and dry it with a very soft cloth (used for glasses). Every once in a while, I’ll take a soft bristle brush and get in the little nooks. After the hot water and steam get to it, it SPARKLES… like it should! 😀

    Will I forget to take it off occasionally when I shower. Otherwise it kind of gets clean when I wash my hands. I almost never use solution or anything special though.

    I have an aquamarine so it shows dead skin pretty well. I clean it whenever I notice it’s getting a little grungy.

    @btothez:  I clean mine a few times a year.  I wish I kept up with it better!  I just don’t think about it.

    I clean it very often as well. I love sparkly, clear diamonds 🙂 I don’t use jewelry cleaner — I’ve heard that the chemicals may not be the best idea. I use a toothbrush and toothpaste OR most recently I’ve been using toothbrush and our Meyers handsoap. Both work wonders.

    I clean mine almost every day, but I don’t use a jewelry cleaner. I use dish soap and a tooth brush, and sometimes I use baking soda mized with a little warm water. It comes so clean, and it’s so easy.

    Now I’m intrigued… What do the chemicals do?  I clean mine all the time with different things.
