Don't buy expensive jewelry cleaner to clean your gold wedding ring!
Instead use toothpaste! Get a soft bristled brush (toothbrush works nice) put a little dab of toothpaste on it and gently clean your Gold pieces. Do NOT use this on Pearls, Silver, Copper or Brass. And always check your ring's setting for loose stones before cleaning. Also make sure you plug the hole in the bottom of your sink in case you drop your ring!

Baking soda also works well, but what do you do when the wedding ring has some scratches, which is undoubtedly inevitable for most of us? Is it possible to get rid of the scratches without having to pay a jeweler to do it for you?

I worked in a jewelry store for a few years. Although we sold jewelry cleaners we cleaned all of our diamond wedding sets and fine jewelry that customers dropped off for cleaning with 1 part liquid Joy dish detergent and 1 part amonia. Soak jewelry in this for a few minutes, rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth.


They always came out beautiful. No scrubbing at all and no paste to get out of little cracks and crevices. Better than any cleaner I ever bought, OR SOLD.

I clean my sterling silver with toothpaste and they come out beautifully clean, even when they are black from tarnish.

Toothpaste makes a great jewelry cleaner and works on most ink spots. Just rub in and rinse.

Editor's Note: Use the white paste, not the gel.

When you go to the jeweler, they use some sort of polish.. I think it was called a rose stone or something like that. That removes all the little dings and scratches that dull a ring.


No home remedies will do that job. Forget it. They only remove the dirt deposits...

Soak them in Gin for three or more hours and wipe with a cotton cloth.

According to "Consumer Reports" you should soak for no longer than a minute in one part ammonia to six parts of warm water. Clean with facial tissue. If you buy jewely cleaner it smells like ammonia. This method is inexpensive and works great. Do not use ammonia, it will discolor! JT

I use Brasso on my gold ring, it takes all of the dirt off and
ends up sparkling and shiny. I can even see my reflection in the ring.

Scratches and nicks? I have an inexpensive Dremel portable tool, a small pot of polisher and some round cotton polishers, and this gets all the scratches out and polishes perfectly. Wal-Mart has all these things in tool section.
