Re: How often do you clean your ring?

I clean at home every 6ish months, professionally cleaned maybe every 18 months? I apparently have acidic skin so it should be more often

Re: How often do you clean your ring?

Never at home. I don't wear it at home, though. Only when I go somewhere. So, it gets less-sparkly but not dirty dirty.

I have it cleaned and inspected twice a year to keep in compliance with the warranty.

Re: How often do you clean your ring?

Whenever I think to clean it... usually once every few months.

Re: How often do you clean your ring?

Never. I used to when we first got married but I have not had it cleaned, either by myself or professionally in about 7 years. I have it on sometimes when I wash my hands so does that count? I take it off as soon as I get home, take it off before I put lotion or anything on so I don't know what would be on it.

Never unless you count when I wash my hands. But I just have a simple titanium band, so it's not like there are any crevices to really get dirty, you know?

Never. I really should but it's like the last thing on my priority list of 2 million other things I need to do.

Re: How often do you clean your ring?

I used to clean it daily and even had an ultrasonic cleaner at home. Since DS, I don't clean it nearly enough. My cleaner broke and I never bothered replacing it. My ring seriously needs cleaning now. It's an x-prong setting and the underside of the stone gets this cloudy film from our hard water, soap scum and hand lotion. It actually looks awful now
