There’s a lot more to cleaning your wedding ring than you might think. Many people put off cleaning it which can cause permanent damage to the ring. It’s for this reason that you should take good care of your engagement ring. Diamonds are not indestructible and should not be treated as such. Check out these tips on how to go about cleaning your wedding ring!
There are many ways you can go about cleaning your wedding ring, but you should be careful in the method you choose as some can harm the type of diamond in your ring. Make sure to research the stone in your ring before attempting to clean it yourself so the chemicals don’t harm it.
With soap, water, and a soft toothbrush you can easily clean your wedding ring. Soak your ring in dishwashing soap and warm water for 20-40 minutes. After that, take your toothbrush and gently scrub the diamond to remove any lotion, hairspray, or other residues on your ring. Rinse and repeat as many times necessary until your wedding ring looks good as new!
Purchasing a professional jewelry cleaning solution is a much easier way to clean your ring. Just make sure it’s non-abrasive and chemical-free. Chemicals such as bleach, acetone, or chlorine could damage the stone or metal.
It’s highly recommended to clean your wedding ring every two weeks to remove any dirt your ring picks up every day. Our wedding rings go through a lot every day, which is why it’s important to remove all the built-up dirt and bacteria frequently. You might also consider getting your ring cleaned professionally twice a year. Professionals will inspect the ring to ensure no stones are becoming loose and the band is not bending. Their professional tools will also clean your ring better than any amount of soap and water from home.
