Cleaning your Bling

This post is dedicated to my recently married and engaged friends. Don't worry single friends, I love you too. We'll have a girls night out soon. Cupcakes and wine. I promise.

Anyways, those of you with the bling bling that are still following are probably wondering, "How do I keep my ring looking like new without taking it to the jeweler every two days?" And since you're either saving up for the big day or are in the process of paying it off, you might be wondering how to take care of the sparkles for less. Super sonic ring cleaner? Nope. Top secret formula jewelry cleaner? Don't worry about it. All you need are a few household objects to give your ring a little TLC.

I present to you....dish soap! A baby toothbrush! And a shot glass! (A drinking glass will also work.) Let me tell you ladies, this stuff works wonders.

So, what do you do with all of this? Pour a little dish soap in the glass. Fill the glass with hot water so that it gets all sudsy. Drop your ring in and let it soak for about 10 minutes. Or from one commercial break to the next.

Then, over a sink that has been plugged (verrry important!), take your ring out of the water and brush it with the toothbrush. Get the toothbrush sudsy as well. And be sure to use a baby toothbrush since the bristles are much softer. Don't forget to get in all of the nooks and crannies. Dirt and gunk love to hang out in there. Afterwards, rinse your ring and dry it off. And then try not to stare :)


Do you have any secret tips for taking care of your jewelry?

  1. Nice! My suggestion to submit is always hang your necklaces. It's the one fool proof way to avoid knots in your necklaces. You can also travel with necklaces leaving the clasps hanging on the outside of a plastic baggie to avoid knots as well. :)
