Cleaning My Engagement Ring (The Cheap Way)

My ring is super dirty. After wearing it for all these months, and moving, I guess it just got SUPER grimey. There is, of course, always the option of bringing it to get cleaned, but I had to figure out a cheaper way to get it clean.

So if your ring is super dirty too, try cleaning it at home. Here’s what you need:

A Small Bowl
A Toothbrush
Baking Soda OR Dish Detergent
Water

There are two methods you can use, one uses dish detergent, the other uses baking soda. The recipe is the same for both. I chose to use the baking soda, but for no particular reason.

First mix one part water with one part baking soda. I used 2 tablespoons, it may have been too much, but I thought it would be best for the ring to sort of soak in it.

Mix up the solution, drop your ring in, and stir it around so it costs your ring.

Once the ring is fully coated, take your tooth-brush and brush the stones and in all the grooves.

You can give it another pass for good measure if you want. Once you think you’ve gotten all the grime off of your ring, rise it under some water and wipe it with a towel. Now you’re all done!
