When I went to get my e-ring fitted when I first got it, the jeweller advised me to keep it sparkly by washing it with a lttile baking soda and a soft toothbrush. So I went out an bought a baby’s toothbrush. When I mentioned this to my friends they all found it totally hilarious!
Am I Odd????

Ha you’re not odd. While I did not go out and specifically buy a toothbrush. I have one from the dentist that I use for cleaning my jewelery, not just my e ring.

No. Not to say I wouldn’t have, but I have a toddler, so we had a lot of extra baby toothbrushes in the bathroom anyway.

Phew! I was scared that my grown-up toothbrush might damage it, although Mr Jewellery Man said it wouldn’t, that’s why I bought a baby one… I’m just glad to know that I’m not alone! lol

The ring cleaner that I bought came with a little brush inside….so that’s how I got mine! You’re not weird. 🙂

Y’all are going to think I’m gross, but I just took one of FI’s after he was done using it to switch for a new one. He uses extra-super-soft toothbrushes because of canker sores, and I made sure to wash/sanitize it as best I could before using it on my ring. Now it lives in the shower so I can clean my ring whenever I need to. Works just fine for me 😛

I’m a dental hygienist and I 100% clean ALL my jewellery with an extra soft toothbrush! How else are you going to get into all the nooks and crannies!?
@Cariad: I wouldn’t use baking soda though, I just use a little jewellery cleaner. Baking soda itself can wear the enamel off your teeth when used regularly over time, so depending on the metals used in your ring, it may do the same to it.

I voted for “no you freak” but I don’t really think you’re a freak. I just use the brush that came with my jewelry cleaner but I would totally would have done the same!

No, but then again I didn’t need it. The jeweler gave me the red jar of Connoisseurs jewelry cleaner and that comes with a little brush.

I don’t use a toothbrush because in my opinion, even the soft ones are too rough for cleaning! I had a kit of makeup brushes and kept one specificially for cleaning my e-ring. It is about the diameter of a pencil and comes to a tapered point, so it’s really easy to get in the nooks and crannies of my ring, plus it is made of natural bristles so it bends really easily and I don’t worry about it damaging anything.
But no, you’re not weird for going out and getting a separate cleaning brush! Haha

I bought a baby toothbrush with a suction cup on the end. I keep it “stuck” to the kitchen sink. About once a week, when doing the dishes, I just use the toothbrush and a little dish soap to give it a quick scrub.
