I have a number of other posts about cleaning my ring, because it’s become sort of an obsession….when I tell FI “I cleaned my ring today!” and show him…he replies “I know you did…because you woke up today.” I have been doing 1 part Windex, 3 parts boiling water and soaking for 5 mins or so, scrubbing with a toothbrush, and then steaming it with the steamer on my iron. I do this probably 1-2x a week (I do the Windex 1x a week and the steamer 2). Is this overkill? How often do you bees clean your ring?

Usually once a week, more often if it’s starting to look dirty (I have an aquamarine so it’s pretty evident if it’s not clean). I just use dishsoap, lukewarm water, and a baby toothbrush.

I should clean mine more – it’s an emerald cut and shows EVERYTHING. All kinds of smudges. I want to try using windex, I think that will help get it cleaner. What I’ve done is super hot water with a little dish soap, and let it sit in there for awhile. It really needs to be professionally cleaned, though!

I was using dish soap and boiling water, but felt like the dish soap was leaving a film on my stone, so I stopped. I feel like the Windex definitely makes it more shiny and clean 🙂

I use jewelry cleaner from our jeweler (FI bought it when he bought the ring, but I spilled half of it so I’ll need to replace it soon), and I clean it maybe once every couple weeks, when I have time.
Confession: I clean it before I know we’re going to see family or friends or new people. Like I’ll clean it before we go out tonight because we’re going to a bar for one of FI’s old friend’s birthday, and I’ll probably meet people, so I want my ring to be super-sparkly cause hell, I like when people notice it. Is that terrible and materialistic? Maybe. Do I care? Not a whit.

Definitely not very often. But I’ve had it for three years and there’s nobody left to show it to.

I take mine to be cleaned at the Jewelry store every 6 months. Im too afraid i will ruin it if i clean it myself.Plus im usually wearing 1 of the 3 band set because im generally running around after my 2 year old.

I clean it at home in the sonic cleaner once a month and take it in to be checked and cleaned professionally about every 6 months.

My ring gets filthy at work for some reason so I clean mine almost every day. I have ring cleaner and just dip a toothbrush in there and scrub away! Also, it drives me nuts when I can see dirt and finger prints all over it so I buff it a lot too hahahaha. I’ve been engaged for well over a year and still clean it almost everyday, so if your cleaning is overkill than mine must be SUPER overkill lol!
