I just took my ring in to be cleaned for the first time since my Fiance gave it to me in November and I can’t believe the difference! It sparkles so much!I would love to do it every month or so, but it’s a bit of a hassle to take it in so frequently.
Does anyone know of a good jewelry cleaner? Or a good DIY recipe for it? I know it’s not quite as good as steam cleaning, but I’d love to have a super sparkly ring all of the time!

I use this stuff I got at the store called Connoisseurs Jewelry Cleaner. It was really cheap but my ring definitely gets cleaned. You just soak it and then scrub it gently with the provided soft brush. Ta-da! Sparkly. Nope, it’s not steam cleaning, but I agree – the hassle is too much when I paid like $5 for the cleaner that will last me over a year. Lol

Here is a recipe for cleaning your rings that has gotten really high reviews. I wouldn’t use it on delicate jewelry like pearls or opals, but it should be fine for gold, silver, platinum, and diamonds, saphires, rubies, but not emeralds…

I got what they sell at the jewelry store–it’s blue and in a little jar that comes with the brush and dippy tray.

@Loribeth: After reading your post, I cleaned 2 white gold rings- one tanzanite with diamonds, and one blue topaz (the topaz was especially gross) and they came out looking amazing! I didn’t even scrub them with a toothbrush!

@LibrarianBride: I know! It’s absolutely amazing how well it cleans. I think my rings look better after using it than they do after the jewelry store cleans them. It’s the best cleaner I’ve ever found and so economical and environmentally friendly.
I even use it on my vintage jewelry, which is more delicate than the rest of my jewelry.
