Surprisingly, many people have never learned how to clean a gold ring properly. Many people find this task daunting, thinking it requires a unique solution or an expensive machine. However, many easy and cheap ways to clean a gold ring at home exist. Here at iTouch Diamonds we offer you tips on how to clean it.
Different Ways To Clean Gold Rings At Home
Most gold rings are made of yellow-gold alloy, which is relatively easy to clean. All you have to do for this one is use a mild soap solution, such as dish soap. You can also use a suitable all-natural alternative such as olive oil, but it's better not to use an alcohol-based product, as your hand might absorb it. If you're considering cleaning your gold ring, do this before any other method.
2. Warm Water
If you're using mild soap, you might want to take out your ring to thoroughly clean it with warm water. Be sure to dry the ring carefully, especially around the band's edges, so it doesn't get the soap on it.
3. Baking Soda
Baking soda is a perfect cleaning agent known for being gentle on the skin. To use it, put some baking soda in a small container and add hot water to it so you can mix it all; then, put your gold ring in, leave it for around 5 minutes, and rinse with warm water.
4. Baking Soda & Vinegar
You can use this option if you have some baking soda at home. Mix the baking soda with vinegar, and put your ring in for a couple of minutes. Then, pour the baking soda and vinegar mixture into another small container and rinse your ring with warm water.
5. Toothpaste and Water
If you want to go cheap-ish, you may think this is the only way to clean your gold ring; however, it's not. You can use toothpaste, but you should make sure to avoid the liquid kind. It contains tiny particles, which may get inside your ring and scratch your finger. If you want to test this method, add a few drops of liquid toothpaste to warm water and put your ring in for around 3 minutes.
6. Vinegar & Salt Water
If you're not that concerned about the chemicals you're applying to your ring, you can use a mixture of equal parts vinegar and salt water. Mix the two, put your ring in for 3 minutes, take it out and wipe it down with a clean cloth.
7. Lemon Juice
Lemon Juice is usually used to clean copper items, but it's also helpful if you want to remove some rust from the inside of your gold ring. You can get a few different types of lemon juice, but the one you want is called murri. Mix 1 part of lemon juice to 6 parts of water and put your ring in for around 10 minutes. Then take it out and clean it with a soft cloth.
8. Peroxide (Drinking O`J' Juice)
For this method, all you need is the liquid Dr. O'J' Juice (patent-pending). This natural cleaning solution can do many things, such as disinfecting, removing rust, and even cleaning gold.
9. Rags & Green Cleaner
This method is perfect for cleaning your ring when the dish soap is too harsh for your skin. First, completely dry your ring before using any of these methods. Then, clean your ring with a rag and a green cleaner. You can use Dishwashing Liquid or make a mixture of equal parts dishwashing liquid to the water. Drink One Juice is another option you can use to clean your ring.
