So, last week I had my ring polished and cleaned and posted how stunning and sparkly it was, and how I wished it could look like that forever…I am very OCD about cleaning it, and after a week, I felt like it lost its “just cleaned” sparkle (even though I clean it every 2-3 days myself). I went to a local jeweler to get a new watch battery, and he commented how much steam makes a difference when cleaning a ring. He said if I have a cappuccino machine at home, I could use the steam from that. I don’t have a cappuccino machine, but I DO HAVE an iron with a steamer!! Ladies, I have either lost my mind or I’m resourceful, LOL…I steamed my ring using my iron!!! I held it with a few paper towels, steamed it like crazy, then gently rubbed the ring down with the paper towels…it looks AMAZING. Just like it was cleaned at the jeweler! I will take pics tomorrow in the daylight 🙂

I’m going to have to give this a try tomorrow. I just had mine cleaned last week and it already looks dirty again.

Another thing that works great – vinegar poured over a bit of baking soda and a good scrub with a toothbrush 🙂

How about the steam from a tea kettle? 🙂

makes sense to me. I always seem to notice my ring is a little extra sparkly when I get out of the shower. I’m sure it’s not the exact same as the shower steam isn’t as direct, but it makes sense that this would work!

@CoffeeandCream: I do that.. 🙂 stick it on the tines of the fork and hold it over the spout of the tea kettle while it steams. works pretty well.
