The best way to clean wedding rings at home
Posted On July 2, 2020
Between all the brief moments of life, a handful of dirt, paint, or lotion will seep into or on your wedding ring, making it look brand new. In just a few minutes, you can use the following tried-and-true tips for cleaning wedding rings to make your ring look glorious and refreshing again at home:
Quick Tip: Clean the wedding ring with a mixture of warm water and soft soap detergent
Although we always recommend that you rely on a jeweler to clean up your wedding ring or engagement ring, sometimes stopping to not make it into your schedule. If you need to clean the ring at home, the best way is to soak the ring in a mixture of dish soap and warm water for about 30 minutes. Then, gently brush the ring with a toothbrush, then rinse the ring under warm water. We like this method because it is safe for all types of wedding rings, which means it will not damage any gems or diamonds in the ring, nor will it scratch any type of metal.
Precautions for cleaning wedding rings
If you are considering using bleach, chlorine, or acetone to clean the wedding ring, please think twice! You should never use any of these to clean your ring, because irritating chemicals can damage the metal in the ring and damage sapphire, ruby, or emerald. Also, avoid using abrasive materials such as baking soda or toothpaste, as this will definitely scratch your metal band.
