With coronavirus running rampant across our world, we’re all washing our hands more, using copious amounts of hand sanitizer, and worrying about anywhere and everywhere germs could be. How much is too much? Your hands may be starting to dry out by now and, if you keep your rings on, just think about the impact all of this washing could have on your jewelry. However, it’s more important now than ever to keep your jewelry clean, too. Since we’re all stuck at home, access to professional cleaning supplies and tools for your jewelry are likely not under your kitchen sink– there are a few things you might have around the house that’ll remove the grime from your rings without causing any damage, though!
