How do I clean my ring???
I am so annoyed this morning, I have been trying to get some GOOD pics of my diamond and I just can't Sad
I wanted to capture the beautiful color and facets but urghhh

I think it needs to be cleaned better, in the 'inside' part. I just can not get it all clean w a small toothbrush, hard to get in there.

What do you guys use to clean? Home made? I want this to sparkle like used to Wink

Thanksssssssssssss

Soak it in Fairy liquid (a few drops) with hot filtered water. Leave it overnight. Scrub in the morning. Rinse with filtered water.

You can add a little vinegar to that if you wish, I don't.

edit - Fairy is Dawn in the US.

My usual soak is 50% hot distilled water, 50% vinegar, a few drops of dish soap. Soak until it cools, scrub, and do it again if it still gunky. Smile

I'm anti vinegar since I ruined my pearl. I knew it wasn't supposed to go in vinegar, but I made a big bowl and decided to soak all my jewelry at one time. Stupid mistake.

I just use hot water and dawn. Recently, whatever jewelry I wear, I take off at night and soak it and scrub it when I get up in the morning and then rinse with water and then another rinse in alcohol to remove any water spots.

I've got a cheap ultrasound machine that works really well. For robust things, like my moissy studs, I pop them straight in, and for delicates, it has a special plastic basket. I don't know how I lived without it.

But ladies: how do you ladies do the alcohol treatment? While they're still wet, or after drying?
