I have been using generic dishwashing liquid to clean my ring, and a film has built up on it. I was told by a friend that you are supposed to use blue dawn specifically, (not red AJAX, like I have been using) or else a film will build up. Has anyone else heard of this?
Any tips on how to remove the film from my ring would be very much apprecitated.

I’ve never heard of that and in the studio I used to work in we always used ajax or any brand dish soap that we found at the dollar store to clean I’m sure some work nicer than others quality … I would just take it to a local jeweler have it untrasonic and steam cleaned and then maybe water down the soap maybe it’s just to thick and not rinsing well… I know dawn is known for “no oily residue ” right ? So maybe that’s the culpraite. Also are you using liquid for a dish washing machine ? Or just dish soap because regular dish soap is what you want

maybe use a soft toothbrush after letting it soak. Also I have heard vinegar in the soap solution helps keep the film off.

Don’t use dish detergent if it’s white gold. I was told by my jeweler that soap and dish detergent is what wears down the rhodium plating of white gold the most.
Now I’m been using jewelry cleaner and I feel like it makes my ring sparkle more than soap used to?

Use a soft tooth brush and spray with Windex and clean with warm water. It works like a charm!

The film is most likely from your water. Mineral deposits from water are a pita to get off too. You should not use windex either. Ammonia leaves a residue that attracts oils.
50/50 distilled water and vinegar, and a few drops of dish soap is seriously the best cleaner for bling. Soak to get on the film and scrob with a new baby tooth brush. New because old ones have tiny particles of gunk in the that will get in your setting, defeating the purpose. And distilled water only, because it is the only water with zero minerals.
If you have a build up on your stone, you may need a few rounds with long soaks, to get all the gunk off.
