A diamond ring takes the spotlight and sparkles on a few occasions. They dazzle during the proposal, wedding vow, and for some, the first day you wore it to work. What comes next is the demanding lifestyle that keeps you so busy that you do not have time to care about it anymore. Then comes the day where you want to wear the ring again and find that it looks dull. The diamond ring has lost its lustre. Cleaning your ring regularly can maintain its shine and sparkle. In fact, it is easy to maintain and clean diamond ring using what is already available at home.
Steps to Having a Clean Diamond Ring – The Mama Lemon Style
Diamonds are natural magnets for grease. The oil deposited from our fingers plus the daily activities will cause dirt and filth to pile up. That layer of dirt and filth is what dulls the diamond. An efficient and effective way to clean diamond rings is to soak it in warm water with a few drops of dishwashing soap. Curious about which dishwashing soap we use in Singapore? It is Mama Lemon!
Soak your ring for 20 to 40 minutes. Next, use a new, very soft toothbrush to gently brush the diamond to remove the remaining dirt. Keep this toothbrush exclusively for cleaning diamond rings. Finally, rinse it thoroughly under warm running water to remove soap residue.
Avoid Harmful Solutions
There are some solutions your rings should never come in contact with. They are your usual household cleaners such as chlorine bleach, and abrasive products such as toothpaste. These chemicals can damage the base metal while abrasives can easily scratch the gold.
