A couple of years ago a new couple started attending our church. They were a young couple, married for just over a year and were extremely nice and friendly. However this was not the first thing I noticed about them. The first thing I noticed was her ring. It was the shiniest thing I had ever seen. It was not necessarily the size of the diamond that grabbed my attention it was how shiny it was.
So I waited until I felt like the time was right (which for me would have been the day after I met her, but I have learned to let people get used to me before I bombard them with questions). So one day I asked her how she managed to keep her ring so shiny. She then proceeded to tell me she cleaned it with toothpaste. Yes toothpaste.
Two and a half years have passed since that time and I now have a ring of my own – and I cannot bring myself to clean it with toothpaste.
Other girls in our church have adopted this cleaning style and their rings are SO shiny. I always comment on how shiny they are and they simply remind me that mine could also be this shiny if I would just breakout the toothpaste.
But I just can’t seem to do it. I’m just afraid I would get toothpaste stuck in the crevices of my ring and then it would be all gross, but yet minty fresh.
So my question to you is: Have you ever heard of this? Have you ever tried this? Do you have your own ‘special’ way to clean your jewels to make them bright and shiny?
Let me know!!!
