the way I wash it at home could work for traveling. I take a shot glass, a squirt of liquid dish soap and fill with water. I let it soak for half an hour then gently scrub with a baby toothbrush. Comes out super sparkly, just bring a travel sized bottle of dish soda and a babybrush. You can also bring a diamond dazzle stick, it’s easily transportable. It isn’t as effective to me though

Diamond dazzle stick.  I actually use it at home too, the brush is perfect.  You can get htem from target or wal mart in the jewelry section.

I agree with PP, get a diamond dazzle stick!

mangosandcats:  I use dish soap and a baby toothbrush as above, but gin/vodka also works; again, leave for a while, and then gently scrub with a baby toothbrush.

Is dish soap ok for your ring? I hardly ever take my ring off, but when I do it’s mostly for weight lifting. I have seen tons of bees take theirs off for washing dishes…I actually thought this was because of the dish soap? Am I wrong and it’s fine?

Rings need cleaning THAT often?  Ooops.  I’ve had a month off vacationing before and never once though that I should clean my ring on vacation.  Then again, they probably only get cleaned every month or two at home anyways.

Dish soap is fine for rings. I clean mine with dish soap and a baby toothbrush. Personally, I think people take their rings off too much. It’s metal and stones. They’re tough. 🙂 I take mine off for dishes just because dishes are grody, but I wear it for laundry, swimming, hitting the elliptical, etc. When I had my setting made my jeweler told me I could run it over with a semi and it would be fine. After 17 years of hard wear, it still looks new.

I’m on team Dishwashing liquid! (w. very hot water).
Cuts oils and leaves a sparkling finish. Perfect every time. 🙂

The jewelry spray from my jeweler is travel sized, so I took that with me during my relocation when I wasn’t sure when the movers would deliver my stuff. My vacations aren’t that long, though, so I can wait to clean when I get home.

soontobeemrsmcmahon:  if I remove when doing the dishes it’s so food gunk doesn’t get caught in the cage. Also, the water and soap makes it slippery and the diamond flips to the palm, which is irritating when trying to use my hands. Does that help?
