I take it off when I shower, wash dishes, or am working with raw meat with my hands in cooking.

Otherwise it’s always on. I sleep in it too.

When I take it off in the kitchen, i put it on the far side of the counter away from the sink. When I shower, I put it on my vanity next to my jewelry box and put it back on first thing after getting out.

I take my ring off to shower, clean, swim and some cooking.  I tried wearing it in the shower once and since my ring is sort of loose, I was paranoid it would go down the drain the entire time!  Never again!

I don’t really take mine off much.  If I make something really messy (meatloaf, bread dough) I will, but that’s about it. 

I do clean my rings a lot and probably wouldn’t have to do so quite as often if I wasn’t exposing them to everything, but I hate taking them off.  I just love to look down and see them there.

i don’t take mine off unless it’s something really messy like meatballs and every month or so to clean it.

@PrncssDva: I take mine off while doing all of those things too.  I also usually take it off at the gym or when I go for a run.  My e ring is kind of loose and I am paranoid about it falling off.   I have found myself wearing just my wedding band sometimes, since it fits more securely.  I will work out with my wedding band on, but not my e ring.

My Darling Husband takes it off when hes goes to sleep and puts it on when he gets up.  I don’t know if he showers with it or not.

Yeah, I take it off when I work with ground meat for meatballs or meatloaf and I take it off when I get it cleaned when I’m at the mall.  I’m afraid that I’ll forget to put it back on if I take it off often.  That or I’m afraid I’ll lose it.

I take my ring off when I get home from work, when I clean, and also when I take a shower.

I take my rings off after I wash my hands when I get home.  They stay safe in my jewelry box.  I also never wear them to the gym, or when I am just running out for a quick errand.

I take mine off to sleep and don’t put it back on until I’m getting ready to walk out the door again. That way it isn’t going into the shower, or getting hairspray, makeup, lotion, etc on it. I also take it off when I’m cooking, baking, washing dishes, etc. Basically the only time it gets wet is when I wash my hands.

Still, it’s not off as much as it sounds. I put it on in the morning before I leave for work and usually don’t take it off again until I’m going to bed. (Mr. Lox does most of our cooking.) On the weekend if we don’t go out one day though, I could go all day without ever putting it back on.

the better question is when do I wear it?
