@legenwaitforitdary:  put it in the paper filter in your coffee pot (no coffee of course) and run water through the machine like normal. Works like a charm!

I use organic dish detergent, RO water, and a microfiber cloth. Nothing harsh, no heavy pressure, nothing abrasive: there’s no need for it.

It works about 90% as well as a professional steam cleaner, and I haven’t been able to justify the cost of getting one of those in my mind, so far. 90% as good as pro steam cleaned is pretty darn clean, after all. So far, I’m satisfied.

I swear by plain ol’ Windex…. that’s what the jeweler recommended to us….

One time my mom got a diamond cluster ring steamed at one of the stores in the mall and a diamond popped out!  So I just won’t trust it.

Windex nor vinegar will harm the diamond… but not sure abou people with other stones or Moissy, it won’t harm gold.. have used it for years… I don’t use it on my silver though… not that this has anything to do with our topic, but if any of you wear silver, the best way to get it sparkly clean is to use an aluminum disposable pan, heat up some distilled water and and put your jewerly in the pan with some baking soda and the hot water, it causes a reaction with the aluminum and makes your sliver look spank brand new.

Been doing this for a year on all of my sterling silver and it works like a charm.

I have a small spray bottle of rubbing alcohol (70%) and spray all underneath the centre diamond and prongs then spray lightly on the pave on my band.  

I let it sit in a glass and cover it with distilled water (my local water is very hard so I have to use distilled to avoid build-up on my ring).

About 5-10 minutes later I take it out of the glass and VERY gently brush the underside of the diamond with an extra soft baby toothbrush.  I brush the top of the diamond and sides of my band as well.  

I blow off any excess water, especially around the prongs on the centre stone, then put it back on and it sparkles like new!

I have sensitive skin and couldn’t use Windex or typical jewellery cleaners so this works well for me.  

My ring is natural diamond and platinum and I’m not sure if this is safe to use on white gold or any other stones.
