I use tap water, baby soap and a toothbrush.  If I feel my ring is extra dirty I will soak it longer in the water.  After I rinse it I dry it with blow dryer.  I feel the dryer makes the biggest difference in sparkle.Wink

I’ve heard not to use Windex because of the ammonia…something about it damaging the metal?  Not sure, but I never tried it.  I usually use dish soap and hot water, soak for a bit and then scrub with a soft toothbrush and rinse and dry.  In a pinch, a quick spray of rubbing alcohol and a rinse will make it sparkle again.

I use jewelry cleaner and a toothbrush. Works great on the prongs!

What about on a gemstone??  I have a slightly softer gemstone and half of the tricks noted above will scratch the beejeebes out of a gemstone.

I soak it in hot soapy water then blast it under my espresso machine with the steamer wand.

We were told to use warm water, an extra-soft baby toothbrush, and mild dish soap.

Dish soap and a toothbrush or Q-tip, rinsed in cold water, and then dried with a microfiber cloth.
