Knowing how to clean your wedding ring is important because it’s worn daily. Neglecting this piece of jewelry can result in a dull, flat finish. Plus, it will make your significant other happy to know that you care about such details. It only takes a few steps to keep it shining like new. You can do this without purchasing expensive cleaners. Gather a few household items and get started.
- Mild dish detergent
- Soft, lint-free cloth
- Small brush or soft bristled toothbrush
- Small dish or bowl
- Fill the dish with warm water and a small amount of dish detergent and soak the ring for a few minutes. This will help loosen any built-up dirt and grime.
- Use the brush to clean debris and dirt that has accumulated on the ring. Make sure not to use a brush with hard bristles, as this can cause scratching and make the ring look dull.
- When you are done cleaning with the brush, rinse the ring well under lukewarm water. Be careful not to lose it in the drain!
Dry and polish the ring until it’s shiny.
If this process doesn’t work as well as you’d like it to, you can clean the ring using a weak solution of ammonia and water or purchase a cleaner. You also have the option of taking it to be professionally cleaned at a jewelry store. Remember to clean and take care of your wedding ring—it is the most important piece of jewelry that you own, so it should be maintained and treated with care.
