My ring is lookin pretty dirty. Lol. I need to clean it, but was wondering how do you ladies clean your rings? Ive tried toothpaste and a toothbrush, didn’t notice much of a difference. I have the diamond stick and jewlrey cleaner, but I am looking to get a ‘deeper’ clean. I dont have time to go to the jewlrey store, do you guys have any household items that you use to clean your rings???

Vinegar and toothbrush is what I use.

I use a little sonic cleaner I got from walmart for $20 bucks. Before I do that, I take an old tooth brush to it. I think the big thing for me is, I use a mix of non amonia window cleaner and rubbing alcohol. then put it in the sonic with the same window cleaner and rubbing alcohol mix. It gets the grease out, and neither of those have a high enough water content to leave water spots.

I use dawn and the toothbrush as well. My ring looks crazy shiny afterwards!

Toothbrush and baking soda works like a charm. I let mine sit in a small bowl with q tbsp baking soda and 1 tbsp water overnight every month or so. The baking soda removes any oxidation (all metals oxidize, or rust, even if you can’t tell, it slightly dulls it). Looks sparkling again.

I second the hot water and vinegar. Let it soak and then scrub with a soft toothbrush.

I use a soft-bristled electric toothbrush and either dawn or gentle handsoap. It really works well. It gets my rings cleaner than they do at the jewelry store.

Toothbrush, hot water, and dish/hand soap. It’s got to be clear/antibacteral, none of that froufrou “good for your skin” stuff.
I cracked my sonic cleaner, so I have to do it the hard way.

I mix a small drop of dish soap with water and soak my ring for an hour or so. The dish soap cuts down on the oils that stick to the diamond. Then, I scrub that puppy off with a toothbrush.

I would not use toothpaste…seems like there are too many other things in it to get a good clean.
A jeweler told me the secret to get rings sparkly is using windex once in a while. Soak it in windex for about 5 minutes and get to work with a toothbrush. <– Works wonders!
A coworker told me dishsoap works well, but I’ve never tried this.

Honestly, I keep my ring on when I wash my hands and it does the trick. Occasionally, I use a nail brush to scrub around the details and under the main stone if I really feel like I need it.
