Ring hygiene

Did you know you can clean your rings by brushing them with a little toothpaste? I just learned this trick from my SIL and it worked! (Although I was very careful not to brush too hard. I would hate to loosen any of the prongs around my diamond!)

(This MY ring, by the way. The one that was lost for 3 months and was found thanks to Audra's inspiration. I finally have a camera that can take a picture of it).

I can't remember who told me that trick.

I use a different brush than the one I'm currently using as a toothbrush, right? And different than the one I scrub the toilet with? Man, I'm gonna have to get a toothbrush labeling system! :)

Yes, I have been brushing my ring for a long time. I like to use my electric toothbrush as it really gets it shinny! I've been needing to blog a post a picture on my new rings I got for Christmas. Scott bought me an anniversary band and the engagement ring I never had for Christmas. He did a great job as they go perfect with my wedding band!

Your ring is almost exact to my original ring! Shule got me a new ring a few years ago, cause I lost the diamond out of my original. Not a good feeling! But I dig your ring, it's butiful!!

I'm so happy that you have your beautiful ring back. I will be more diligent in cleaning my ring from now on.
