I get asked a lot how I keep my diamond ring so shiny and sparkly. I know Hometalk is a great place to share home tips but it's nice to feel good about ourselves and what we're wearing while we're in our home too.

I use a small ramekin and add water. It can be bottled or tap. Fill it up about 2/3 of the way.

Then place in microwave to get it hot, not quite boiling.

Then add Windex. I add about 10 squirts and the water will bubble as shown below. Then drop your ring in and walk away.

I let it set at least 1/2 hour. Then I use a small brush (it can be a jewelry cleaning or old soft toothbrush) and brush gently under the stone too. Rinse off with cold water and pat dry with cotton cloth.

    I use denture cleaning tablets and a kids toothbrush. The bubbles really get to the small nooks and crannies in the back of the rings and necklaces
