DIY Jewelry Cleaner

Hey folks! The weekend is in sight and I can hardly wait! I’m headed to Apple Works with my parents, sister and daughter {hubs has an event to attend to :-/} to get the best pumpkins ever! 😉 Also, {yes there’s more!} our town is having a festival the same day. -{Double whammy}- Pumped!

Well it’s been approximately a year of NOT cleaning my wedding rings {bad wife of the year -_-} and I was finally starting to feel guilty about it. LOL. As weird as it is, I almost feel like I’m being unappreciative or disrespectful towards my marriage if my ring isn’t spick and span. Although that isn’t the case, I do feel it’s important to take care of your jewelry especially the pieces that have meaning {ohhhh you know, like my wedding ring! ha}. I just couldn’t stand to look at my “foggy” rings anymore and I had ran out of jewelry cleaner {ages ago} so what to do?!… I decided to make my own cleaner! Why not? Here it is…


  • 1 cup of hot water    
  • 1 tablespoon Baking Soda
  • 1 tablespoon Salt
  • 1 tablespoon Dish Soap


  • Heat your water in a bowl {cereal bowl} for 2 mins.
  • Once heated, combine ALL ingredients into the bowl with the water. {Slightly stir.}
  • Place ring in the bowl and let sit for 5-10 mins.
  • Rinse with cold water and pat dry with a soft towel.

It’s just that easy! I was so pleased by the results I received I just HAD to share. 🙂

{Works best on nickel, sterling silver, gold and silver.}

Enjoy! 🙂

  1. Thanks for the “recipe” for cleaning rings. Our jeweler also told me to use equal parts of amonia and water, heated in the microwave. I let my rings soak then use a small brush to get to the hard-to-reach places. Works great. But, I’m not too crazy about the smell.

    Enjoy the apple orchard. Coincidentally, I live in Indy too. My niece in Georgia turned me on to your Blog via Pinterest, so I’ve enjoyed following your entries!

      Thanks for your following this blog and for your feedback! Indy is great isn’t it …i love it! 😉
      I did see a recipe for ammonia and water and the results looked positive but I just didn’t want to embrace the smell of ammonia either.
      Thanks again for your comment!

  2. I have tons of jewelry cleaner left but I’ll definitely have to remember this! =]

  3. Jewelry Cleaning is very sensitive process, as you have to be very careful. This recipe is amazing …Thanks for sharing!!

  4. Thanks for this great “recipe”! My engagement ring is ready for its photo shoot!

  5. I just tried it, and it worked great! Thanks!

  6. I used to work in a jewelry store for many years and have to agree that this recipe does work great. I also used an old toothbrush to clean in the holes behind the stones. One thing I want to mention is do not use dishsoap that contains bleach. Bleach and other harsh chemicals like chlorine will eat away at the alloys in your ring and cause durability issues. Thank you for sharing!

  7. This was seriously amazing. I wish I had taken a before photo so I could remember just how terrible it was, but I am absolutely stunned at how beautiful and sparkly my wedding ring looks! I can’t stop looking at my hand. 🙂

    Thanks for posting!
