So this might be a stupid question – maybe it’s not, I don’t know 🙂
But anyway, so I’ve read and you’ve all adviced me quite a few ways to clean it.
But one thing I forgot to mention which was an important fact was that I’m allergic to detergent since I was a kid.
My father’s side all have the same allergies which would have our hands start to peel and itch. I scratch my hands till sometimes it bleeds. (okay TMI)
Anyway, I didn’t want to wash my e-ring in detergent as I may be afraid that any form of it may be stuck to my ring and cost my allergy to react.
So I’m wondering if it’s actually possible to replace bath soap with detergent to wash it?

My guess is bath soap would leave a residue and wouldn’t work well. You could try a mixture of white vinegar and hot water.

What do most bees use to clean their rings? Mine are getting a little grungy and I have not been near a jewelry store. So what is the best way to clean at home?

I use a jewelry cleaner like this one https://www.amazon.com/Connoisseurs-Precious-Jewelry-Cleaner-Fl/dp/B0014LU4FA/ref=br_lf_m_tea3ywbxk5gx3au_img?_encoding=UTF8&s=home-garden
(can’t find the exact brand I have, but it’s the same idea.) You can also put it in a bowl with warm water, a bit of gentle dish soap and then scrub it with a clean toothbrush.

put your ring in warm water a drop a hint of detergent in it. Let it sit for awhile then take it out and brush it with a soft bristle toothbrush. Then rinse it off. Remember to clean the prongs.
If not mistaken lol

I use warm water, dawn platinum dish soap (not sure if you are allergic to that), and windex. Soak and scrub with a soft bristle toothbrush!

I use Tiffany & Co liquid jewelry cleaner $20. Make sure you buy the one for gold/plat/diamonds…not silver cleaner. It rinses very clean.

Get an ultrasonic cleaner for your ring, it is the best! You do not have to put in anything but water; I like to put in a llittle dawn dishsoap with warm water.
My rings and jewlery has never been cleaner! You can also wash watches, glasses and so much more. They sell them on Amazon for about $25!

I really like my diamond dazzle stick. I bought it on Amazon. Works really well, and it’s super simple.

I bought it at a convention I went to because the guy asked to clean my ring, and I was astounded at how amazing it looked afterward.

I am super sensitive to soaps and smells, and I also start to itch pretty easily if I use a typical cleaning product. For my ring I use an all natural dish soap that’s for babies (I think geared toward washing bottles). It’s foamy, so I squirt it into a small bowl and let my ring sit in the foam for a bit. Then I rinse it in hot water and clean it with a soft brush.
You can try white vinegar with baking soda as well!

I also use the tiffany and co. Jewelry cleaner and brush it with a jewelry brush cleaner. Once in awhile, I use the Cartier one too.

My jeweler told me to use sudsy ammonia and very hot water (equal parts). It works wonders!!!

If i’m not mistaken jewelry cleaners like the Diamond Dazzle stick have detergent in them, so maybe spot test before you use them?
