shiny and new

After I got engaged last year, my Mom taught me how to clean my rings at home for cheap. Jewlery cleaner can be so expensive, so I love this cheap alternative.

You'll need a small sauce pan and some clear ammonia. Put about a 1/4 cup of ammonia and 1/4 cup of water in the pan. The bottom of the pan should fill filled a couple of centimeters high.
Bring the water to a boil then turn down to medium-high.
Put the rings in the pan and let them sit for a couple of minutes.
Fish the rings out with a toothbrush and pat them dry with a paper towel.
Rinse off and scrub the rings with a toothbrush.
Place back on your finger and admire how shiny and new your ring looks again.
