Another idea is use steam. You can go all out and purchase a steam jewelry cleaner. Or, place some distilled water and a touch of vinegar into a pot on the stove and hold the ring over the steam on a fork. Then, take it away and scrub with water to get all the stuff off, then back over the steam!

Get Bling Bling wipes I honestly find them to be better than when I clean my ring with the jewelry cleaner from my jeweler.

I have a Jewel Jet (steam cleaner), my future mother-in-law gave me the Connoisseurs Precious Jewelry cleaner, and I also have a Connoisseurs Diamond Dazzle Stick for when I don’t want to dunk the whole thing for a soak. The cleaners tell you to rinse and dry after use, so they don’t stay and film on the surface of your jewelry.
I really like each method. The Stick is definitely quickest, but the steam blasting with a little brush worked well on my friend’s ring who had lots of soap, dirt, and lotion build-up in between the twisty split shanks of her ring.

I use a little dish soap (not detergent), Windex and warm water and it works perfectly. I also use this solution in an ultrasonic cleaner which I purchased from Amazon and love. Though, its not necessary.

Ok wait…. when you mentioned detergent, I had assumed you meant dish soap / dish detergent. But it seems from PPs that maybe I’m wrong. In that case, yes, I’d also recommend dish soap since that’s what I use. But my guess is with dish soap (or any of the other non-natural cleaning solutions that PPs are mentioning), if you’re allergic to detergent (laundry detergent…?), then you might well be allergic to those too depending on the ingredients, so please be careful.

Could you soak your jewelry in the solution of dish soap and white vinegar and water in a screw capped container and then with gloves,scrub with a soft toothbrush and rinse in (distilled) water and then dry them? So no residue or touching products that could upset your skin? Just an idea,hope you find something that works out 🙂

Use dish washing liquid in a cup of hot water then scrub with a tooth brush and rinse with hot water. Then dry with a paper towel your baby will sparkle like crazy. 🙂

How about an old electric toothbrush head and some warm
water? It’s worth a try!
Does anyone know how frequently you’re supposed to clean e.g. a solitaire?

Martha Stewart made a paste with water and baking soda.

Hey, yes you got it right. I am allergic to dish detergent/dish soap. I’m unable to wash plates without having my allergic reacting. Even with gloves, a tad bit of dish soap that touches my hands would. So am finding ways that does not require detergent of any kind 🙂
