I was told Windex + water works well!

I get out a little bowl and put some windex and water in there. It works like a charm!

Usually just the red bottle of cleaner the jeweler gave me.  Sometimes I soak it in dish soap and water while I take a shower.  Mine doesn’t get too dirty,  It has a high setting, so I usually take it off as soon as I get home.

I have a jewelry cleaner calle Blitz that I got a Macy’s.  My godmother told me that the key to a brilliant sparkle is to dry your ring with a hair dryer.  That way it does not have any water spots.

Nothing beats a good steam cleaning from the jewelers though 😉

I have another question. How often do you clean your ring? Or how often are you supposed to? I know the jeweler requires you get it cleaned and inspected every 6 months…. but I take my ring to the jewelers about once a month because I love how shiny it gets! I switch from the one in our town to the one in my best friends town so they wont recognize me 🙂

Oh this is a great thread!  I need this….been married since Aug and havn’t had my rings cleaned since!

So windex and water, huh?   Can anyone tell me if you use a toothbrush to “scrub” it or do you just let it soak and it comes out clean?

@spraguebride – I don’t use a toothbrush, I just kind of rub it down in the bowl with my fingers, and then rinse it off with just water.

I use products by Connoisseurs!  They’re quick and fabulous!  I also have a La Sonic Jewelry cleaner, which is quick, and relatively cheap, too!

I love this little thing…it takes like, two seconds…brush your ring with the gel and brush, rinse with warm water, dry with a soft cloth, pop the ring back on your finger.  I did it yesterday and was sooo surprised at how well it worked!

When I want to clean more than just my ring, I’ll put my jewelry in here and it takes about 5 minutes to get everything looking sparkly and new!

@MandyW- I use those products too and they work great. But I don’t have an ultrasonic cleaner. Does it work much better? Are the rings safe in there and how often can you use it?

I use a toothbrush and toothpaste.  Two different jewelers have told me that little trick and it works great.  I just always close the drain to make sure I don’t drop it!!
