Homemade Ring Cleaner – Just 3 Ingredients Needed!
Lately my rings have looked horrible (okay, my one set of rings . . . I've never worn anything other than my wedding and engagement ring!), and I was determined to come up with a way to get them cleaned using an at home jewelry cleaner.
I've always hated the idea of paying for jewelry cleaner, so I usually just ask the jewelry stores in the mall to clean them, but I hardly ever get to the mall these days, and I really hate asking them when I'm there. (It just makes me feel like I should buy something!).
So recently, I did some searching of how to clean rings at home, and came up with this easy recipe including a whopping three ingredients . . . that I can almost guarantee you have in your kitchen right now – no harsh chemicals at all.
All you need to get started is a jar, some hot water, baking soda, and a cheap soft toothbrush to create this cleaning solution (you can get all of this at the Dollar Tree for less than $3!).
Here's how to clean rings at home:
Warm your water to hot (not boiling). You'll then mix in baking soda until it's well combined. Place your rings in the water and then let them sit (mine sat for about 5 minutes).
Take your rings out of the homemade jewelry cleaner mix and take your toothbrush to gently scrub off any pieces of debris that loosened. Then gently brush with the toothbrush to brighten the ring. Rinse if you'd like, and allow to air dry on a soft cloth or paper towel.
You can use this cleaner to clean your engagement ring at home, clean your diamond rings, clean your gold – even any of your other pieces of jewelry.
I tried to get a good picture of my ring to show you the difference, but my camera just wouldn't zoom in that close, so you'll just have to take my word for it!
Note that fragile stones, such as pearls and opals, may not be cleaned this way – thanks for the tip Hagee!
