Keep those diamonds sparkling, because we could all use a little sparkle right now!

There is no need to invest in a fancy home steamer or expensive products to get your ring glistening, shiny, and clean, because this quick and easy option allows you to clean your diamonds right in the comfort of your home.

This simple technique works like magic and takes under 10 minutes! Follow the steps below for a quick and easy cleaning:

Ingredients/Tools needed:

- Water

- Liquid Dish Soap

- A Small Bowl

- A Toothbrush

- A Paper Towel or Soft Cloth

Step 1 - Prep The Solution

Start by prepping a bowl with warm water and adding 1-3 drops of liquid dish soap. Something as easy as Dawn works just fine.

Step 2 - Soak

Gently place your engagement ring at the bottom of the bowl containing the solution and let soak for 5-7 minutes.

Step 3 - Brush

Next, remove your engagement ring after soaking. Dip a toothbrush into the soap and water solution and begin to gently brush the diamonds clean. Try to get deep into the crevices of the ring to get any dirt or debris out that has been building up over time. Give it a nice scrub!

Step 4 - Rinse and Dry

Rinse your engagement ring under plain warm water and pat dry with a soft cloth or paper towel. Easy as that! Your ring will now be sparkling and looking fabulous.

See how simple it is? Now you can clean your ring on a weekly basis in a short period of time from the comfort of your home. Happy cleaning!
