I’m one of those girls that isn’t afraid to wear my engagement ring. You’d think I would be considering the diamond was Chuck’s grandmother’s and the band is a 100-year-old antique. But, with the exception of in the shower and when I’m putting on moisturizer – most of the time – the ring is always on my finger.
After four months of wearing it every day, it was starting to get a little grimy. I did a quick Google search to see if I could find some hints as to how to clean my ring with a normal household product rather than spending money on some ring cleaner.
An old discussion board thread popped up, with most of the posters claiming Dawn dishwashing detergent did wonders. So into the kitchen I went and filled a cup with Dawn and some warm water and let the ring soak while I wiped down the kitchen counters. Afterward, I scrubbed it a little with a toothbrush and rinsed with warm water.
Let me tell you, I’m sold. My diamond has not sparkled this much since Chuck picked it up from the jeweler after getting it reset.
Best part, it cost me NOTHING.
