I haven’t worn mine for a couple of years due to the ‘slick’ on the table. I had pretty much given up on it and bought a diamond to wear, but I still wanted to salvage it. After reading this thread I got motivated. I didn’t have any silver cleaner, but after looking under my kitchen sink I found some Ceramabryte that I use to clean my stove with. I used a tiny amount with an electric toothbrush and it took it right off. Just thought I’d mention it. I hope I didn’t damage it any other way. Happy to see the slick gone!

I honestly never heard of this happening, kinda disappointed I’m considering a moissy for a second ring! Everyone seems to rave about them but never mentions the stain

natashanicole:  don’t let the slick deter you from purchasing a moissanite. Its easy enough to remove and is not common as it may seem.

natashanicole:  according to the company that makes moissanite, sometimes there is residue left on the stone after polishing, which attracts all kinds of stuff and leaves an oil slick, but it’s easy to remove, and mine never came back after that first time. So, do not let that be a deterrent!

Has anyone tried lemon juice? It’s the only thing that has worked so far for removing hard water build up (specifically lime scale) from our dishes. (They looked so bad before!) The build up happens specifically when using hot water. So take the ring off for showers/washing dishes if you think it might be hard water build up.

natashanicole:  I had the oil slick stain on my moissy and even though I knew it was a possibility I was super dissapointed.  After trying a couple other things to remove it I finally just took a baby toothbrush and some baking soda toothpaste and scrubbed it for a good 10-15 minutes and it was gone and hasn’t come back.  Super easy fix and it looked like new again. No need to worry!
