There’s another thread going on about this that dawn and a toothbrush will do a good job.  A little more expensive, but my favorite is Diamond Dazzle Stik because it’s really convenient and the brush can get into the little crannies of the stones.

I have an ultrasonic cleaner that works wonders!

Put it in a small bowl with very hot water and let it soak, at least an hour.  If you have it,  a little amonnia in the water will help too.

@lilcafe:  +1 I was just going to suggest an ultrasonic cleaner!

I used to work at Birks and we would clean anyone’s rings (diamonds or gold only, no pearls, emeralds etc) for free. Not sure if they still do that, or if jewelers in your area do, but you should ask! It only takes a minute and nothing will clean as well as the ultrasonic.

Hi @atlbride2013:  Both my ERing & my Sparkly WBand are Channel Set

I wear them pretty much 24/7.  And I wash my hands a lot… and wear them in the Shower as well.

Aprox once a month, I soak them for a few minutes in a “Gentle Jewellery Cleaner”… not sure if I got my recent jar at a Jewellery Store, Dept Store… or from Avon.  It is a product that is good for most jewellery except Pearls.

But it works great.  Just a few minutes is all my rings need (I usually do em one day when I am in the shower) … you stick em in the tray and submerge them.  There is a wee brush if you want to scrub a bit (I don’t… soaking is fine).

I rinse em off in water, pat dry with a PT, and put them back on.  Good as new.

Once a Quarter or so (3 or 4 months) I get them professionally cleaned at the Jewellers… (I have 2 regular ones… as we bought my ERing at one store, and my WBands at another)

And then once every 6 Months… they get their Semi-Annual Inspection and Cleaning from where they were purchased.

That is that.  Last check up I was told they look AMAZING… and they do.

IF I was in a career where they would get more cruddy… I’d probably clean em more often (like once a week)

Hope this helps,

@atlbride2013:  I soak mine in baking soda and water.  Then clean with a toothbrush. Good as new!

I just soak mine in warm water and dishwashing detergent for 10 mins then clean the junk out with a toothbrush (for toddlers because otherwise I can’t get all of it clean)
