I use hot water and a little windex. I let it soak for maybe 20 mins. Comes out brand new sparkly!!

Dawn dishwashing liquid works great too, use a toothbrush to get into the nooks and crannies.  I rinse it REALLY well, to be sure it’s all off.  I then blow dry the ring to prevent mineral spots, as our water is very hard.

About every two weeks I soak it in a cup of warm water with a squirt of Dawn detergent, let it soak for about half hour, then I gently brush it with a soft toothbrush. After that I spritz some windex on the diamonds, brush it again then rinse it super well and dry it off with a soft cloth. It’s amazingly sparkly after! My ring is 14k gold and diamond. From what I have read it’s safe to clean that way but if anyone knows otherwise please let me know! ๐Ÿ™‚

I use a clothing steamer once in a while when I’m steaming my clothes before work. I hang ring on a hook (I use the metal clotheshanger fromt he dry cleaner) and hold steam for about a minute or so from all around. Looks great, no spots or chemicals ๐Ÿ™‚

I have a friend that got an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner and swears by it. I found them for about $25 on amazon. I might give it a shot. I guess that is one of the things jewelers use to clean them.

I have been using the old dawn and a toothbrush technique myself. And that works great too ๐Ÿ™‚

Home method: Mr. Clean with ammonia, one cap full and a cup of hot water…. baby toothbrush.  Perfect. 

My favorite: Diamond Dazzle Stick!  I don’t know what they put in it but it’s like no other and better than the jeweler.  I clean it daily with mine and order them in a 6pk on Amazon to keep in my purse, etc.   I’m addicted.

I haven’t tried this yet, but the jeweler told me to soak it in vodka.   Would love to hear if anyone had tried this.  I have soaked it in dish soap and warm water and it did make it sparkle.

I agree with the other posts about dishwashing liquid soap. I spoke to my professional jeweler about this and he said the best way to clean your jewelry at home is to soak it in a solution of warm water and dishwashing soap for about 15 minutes and then scrub a bit with a toothbrush, then rinse. I do this about once a month for my e-ring which is a round diamond with pave halo band in platinum and it works great!

I agree with the windex/dawn method with a soft tooth brush. I also hear people love their ultrasonic cleaning but they may do hard to pave set diamonds. Talk you your jeweler about the best option for your ring style.

I bought a little jewelry cleaning solution from Avon and it comes with a cleaning brush as well. It wasn’t too pricey and does a great job.

I use lavish brand foam cleaner and a soft toothbrush about once a week. I get great results and people compliment me on how sparkly and pretty my wedding set is all the time.

Dawn dish soap works great or a little ammonia diluted in water. I actually used diluted ammonia today and my ring is  extra sparkly now!

Diamond Dazzle Stick is the absolute best thing. I use it a couple of times a week, and I honestly think it does just as good as getting it professionally cleaned. I bought mine at Target. I even got my mom hooked on using it, and it made WORLDS of difference to her ring.
