My e-ring is carved on the back of the band and I noticed that there’s water build up there.
(I don’t take shower with my ring, or do dishes, etc. I make sure water is the only thing that touches my ring. No shampoo, no soap, etc)
I attached photo (this isn’t my ring but found on the web that looked like the back of the band)
Anyone else having a problem with where I circled in this pic? Like water building up inside the carved part of the ring?
Do you know how to clean and prevent future build up?
Thanks in advance!

Mine has a ton of nooks and crannies that this happens too. While I can’t help on prevention, I clean it with dish soap and a toothbrush. It really works great to get it out.

Mine does. I always take my rings off whenever my hands are going to get wet (cooking, cleaning, even washing hands). Basically, every time I wash my hands, I take my rings off and put them in my pocket (I know! Bad things can happen like them getting lost!) I put them back on when my hands are completely dry. Also, my rings come off as soon as I get home.

I use a blowdryer on low to dry my rings!

If you only let water touch them, they can’t ever get clean. Dirt and dead skin will build up! They need soap too. Try getting a professional clean first, and maintaining with a toothbrush and soapy water after you come home for the day. It works wonders

When I wash my hands, I slip my rings up a bit to make sure I dry under them (skin) and the ring. For daily cleaning, I mostly use my DiamondDazzle stick + warm water + dry with gentle cloth. Every week or so, I mix ammonia (just a bit), very warm water + blue dawn dish detergent (nothing with hand softening properties). I let the rings soak in the mixture for a while, then give them a scrub with a soft toothbrush. Then, rinse in warm water over a colander. Then dry thoroughly. Non-white gold gets a buff with a Sunshine cloth. White gold just gets a soft cloth.
