Over the last few years I've been learning the ways of the housewife.
This doesn't sound like it would be that difficult but in this day and age it is very difficult to be a housewife with all of the products being thrown at us for whatever we can imagine.
I'm all about Alton Brown's motto throw out the Uni-Taskers and look for ways to use what we already have to get the job done.
I'm all for downsizing and finding multiple uses out of things we have laying around.
I've been wearing more lotion since the weather has cooled off. Mainly because I'm extremely itchy from all this stretching I'm doing.
When I wear my wedding rings I don't take them off. I have extremely bad luck and that paired with pregnancy I drop everything! Because of this when I put lotion on I keep my rings on. I know this is a terrible practice but if I take them off I know I'll lose them.
Over the course of a few days the lotion will build up an dull my rings. This is not a good thing!
After researching different ways to clean rings it seemed most people use Dawn Dish Soap, warm water, and an old tooth brush.
How simple is this?
I was excited to try it.
It works like magic! My rings sparkle like new!
What you need:
- 2-3drops of Dawn Dish Soap
- 1/2 Cup warm water
- Old Soft bristle tooth brush.
Add the drops of Dawn into the bowl and add the warm water. Place rings in warm water for 10-20 minutes. Once they have soaked plug your sink (please) and scrub gently with your toothbrush. Be careful and don't scrub too hard.
Rinse carefully over plugged sink, pat them dry, and there ya go shiny rings! Some people will say doing this will leave soap scum. If you notice it leaving soap scum dilute some Windex in some water and brush them clean. I haven't had a problem with soap scum and I've been doing this for a few weeks.
Please do your research before doing this. Not all stones and metals can be cleaned this way. I have white gold and diamonds. Don't use toothpaste or baking soda it's abrasive and can scratch the metal settings.
