FutureDrAtkins:  baking soda toothpaste and spin toothbrush. Takes 5-10 minutes, it works like a charm! Moissanite is porus so if you get any oil on it it seeps in and gives an oil stain on the surface.

sleepyhead22:  I’m going to test my Amora gem and let you know! It’s from oil like cooking oil, lotion. Moissanite is poris and oil seeps in and causes a rainbow stain on th surface

pixiecat:  you probably don’t use hand lotions. It’s an oil stain.

Willowtree2222:  I use hand lotion almost daily, but take my rings off to apply it.  I do keep my rings on when applying facial lotions, hair products, and washing/conditioning my hair.

Willowtree2222:  I’ve tried that and it didn’t work. C&C are sending me a cloth today, I will update if that works.

FutureDrAtkins:  your stain must have been there for a while.. It once took me 1/2 hr to get an old set in stain out, luckily C&C can replace it if you can’t get it out!

pixiecat:  yeah then your ok. I’ve gotten the stain from hand lotion, potato chip oil (reaching my hand in the bag) olive oil. I look out for it so I know to immediately get it off.

FutureDrAtkins:  I hope the cloth works! What is this magical cloth made of? Do we know?

I contacted both Schubach’s and C&C, so far only Beth from Schubach’s replied telling me to ask C&C for a cloth (but I can’t call them since I’m in Europe and it would cost a fortune). I emailed them twice already, no reply…

Bridey77:  not ruined by far! I still love it, but considering the amount we spent on it (and 21% extra import costs) it’s very disappointing to find out this happens and can’t be easily fixed. I’m waiting for this magical cloth to be sent to me but I have to rely on email communication and it’s too slow for my liking, lol.

I still haven’t been able to remove the stain on my own, and I’ve had no luck getting an answer from C&C… Any news from you guys?

perlerose:  I get this stain too on my oec. The cloth is called a sunshine cleaning cloth and you can order them fairly cheaply on Amazon. I’m actually waiting for mine to arrive today. I’ve used it before, and it works well. It really leans the metal too. I’ve used it all to try to get rid of the stains, they are on all facets of my stone. It goes slightly away for a while but always returns no matter what I use to clean it. I never wear my rings to apply lotion, and I take them off when I shower. It’s definitely frustrating, but luckily the stone is still beautiful!!

Hamcaticorn:  Sadly they aren’t anywhere near “fairly cheap” for me, since I live in Belgium. I found one on amazon.de and .fr, but both are over $30 usd including shipping. Kind of expensive for what looks like the fifteen different polishing cloths I’ve tried before (screen, silver, whatever)
