I was inspired to clean my ring for the first time today. I didn’t think it was all that gunky or dirty, but after the cleaning– WOW! It looks brand new again! I took some bee advice and soaked it for about 10 minutes in warm Windex solution. Then I used a toothbrush and gently brushed the nooks and crannies.
I didn’t think it would make such a difference, but it really does! I was so impressed that I busted out the camera and took some fun pics.
How do you girls clean your ring? I’m interested in learning new techniques. 🙂

i use that jewelry cleaner for delicate jewelry in the little jar with the brush you can find at the jewelry counter @ target and mass retailers…works well for it…

I bought jewelery cleaner at BB&B and clean it almost every day. It makes SUCH a huge differnce and my fiance really appreciates it 🙂

i also just use some jewelry cleaner. It actually came with my wedding band :p (from brilliantearth.com) It’s supposed to be environmentally friendly, so that’s a plus!

I’m a huge advocate of toothpaste! I actually leave a toothbrush and mini tube of toothpaste in the shower, and I clean it a few times a week in the shower. You only need a tiny bit of toothpaste, brush it into the crevices, and make sure to rinse well.

My jeweler said to use some water and ammonia and let it sit overnight because it’s not abrasive. Overnight really does the trick!

Well, a jeweler once told me that Mr. Clean + Water work great as a liquid cleanser … never tried it. I’m too scared! I know that there is not much that can ruin platinum, but those with gold should be cautious.
I take mine to the jewelry store to get cleaned in the machine + steam. I love it. Water + toothbrush works well too .. soap will make dust collect on the ring.

Ammonia and warm water works wonders, I have a ton of family that are jewelers and if you don’t have a steam cleaner like at the jewelry store then warm water and ammonia!

@MsHymanRoth – My jeweler told me the same thing about Mr.Clean and said that is what they actually clean my ring with. And it sparkles something fierce when they are done.

My mom and grandmom have used toothpaste for years on their diamonds and they sparkle. I’ve been doing the same every few days and my ring looks beautiful!

Hot water, cascade dish washing detergent and a toothbrush.

RAllise – just make sure your toothpaste is the old school kind……no fancy kinds with beads or stuff, as that can be abrasive on metals!
I soak in warm water mixed with a few drops of Woolite or a few drops of Mr. Clean (depending on which room I am in) and then gently scrub with an extra soft toothbrush from Target.

Thanks for the tips bees! I’ll have to try these techniques… does anyone know how much the jewelry cleaner costs (like for a bottle, or cannister, whatever it comes in)?

I paid $5.99 for a container 5 months ago and it still works like a charm.
