How to DIY with Thieves – Part 3: Ring Cleaner

Hello + happy long weekend!

Martin Luther King Jr. weekend holds a special place in my heart because it was when Ryan and I got engaged (6 years ago)! We had met our senior year at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY through my housemates and now besties, Kristen and Steph. We were just friendly with each other in college. Ryan and his friends would come over occasionally for The Sopranos on Sunday nights and my friends and I frequented the local dive bar, Rennie’s, where he bartended. We actually did “hook up” Senior Week, but that was it. We graduated a few days later and didn’t speak to each other again for four years!!!

Thanks to Facebook, we reconnected. (He friended me, haha!) We discovered that Ryan was going to law school a few blocks from where I was working my finance job in lower Manhattan. We decided to meet for dinner and drinks, and well, the rest is history! After a couple of years of dating, Ryan brought me back up to Marist College on Martin Luther King Jr. weekend and proposed along the Hudson River. We’ve been married for almost 5 years now and have two beautiful daughters together, Mairen and Mae.

To keep my rings sparkling clean, I use a DIY Ring Cleaner with Thieves. If you’ve been following me for a while now, you may remember that over the summer, we gave these as favors to guests at my sister’s bridal shower. Read all about that HERE! What I love about this DIY is there are no harsh chemicals soaking into my diamonds or white gold settings, just effective plant-based ingredients! Here’s how to make it:

✨ DIY Ring Cleaner with Thieves ✨

To a 4 oz. glass jar, add 1 tbsp Thieves Household Cleaner, 1 tsp Thieves Dish Soap, 1 tbsp Thayers Witch Hazel, fill with water and shake!

You’ll want to soak your rings for about an hour in the solution, gently scrub around all the crevices with a clean toothbrush, and rinse in cold water. Ta da!!

{The glass jars I purchased from Specialty Bottle Co. and the labels are from Farmhouse Vinyl Co.}

As always, if you have any questions, feel free to reach out!
