When I tell you this jewelry cleaner is magic, this jewelry cleaner is MAGIC. I’ve had this homemade jewelry cleaner recipe saved for years now (hah! subtle jab at Ben 😉 but now that I’ve tried it, I am hooked for life. I’ve gotten my engaged/married friends hooked, they’ve gotten their moms hook on it, my Godmother who has been married for 40+ years said her ring has never been cleaner, and so on. It is INSANE (and it’s just two household ingredients).
I am a longtime follower of(love her!) and she got this jewelry cleaner recipe back in the day from her jeweler. Landyn, this jewelry cleaner recipe is gold! She does a really in-depth post on this recipe going over more in detail on the do’s and don’ts of this ring cleaner. :). I posted . I had a ton of comments from jewelers saying this is the only recipe they actually approve of.
I’ve seen a lot of messages coming through DM’s asking for a reminder on this recipe over the last few months, so I figured it was time to give it a permanent home here.
The best part of this is you probably have all the ingredients at home already. All you need is a, , , and a (I just bought a baby toothbrush).
how to make the DIY Jewelry Cleaner:
Step 1: In a microwave dish, combine two cups of Windex with a few drops of Dawn Dish Soap.
Step 2: Microwave liquid mixture for 1 minute (without your ring in it yet!)
Step 3: Place ring in container and let sit. I’ve let it sit for 20 minutes while I get ready in the morning and have also let it sit in the mixture overnight for a real deep clean.
Step 4: Put a bowl over your sink drain to avoid any disasters and scrub the ring down under some water. Get in alllll the grooves. Use a soft bristle brush for this to avoid scratching. A baby toothbrush or even an old toothbrush works!
Your ring will SHINE. It makes a lot of the mixture so I just put the lid on my container and leave it under the sink. I don’t think I will need to remake it for like two years. Some of my friends who have been married for a long time said they saw actual dirt come off of their ring from this.
And for all my friends getting engaged soon, this mixture WILL be your engagement gift ;).
