DIY Cleaning Solution for Diamond Rings

Hey Everyone!!
Did you know you could clean your diamond rings with Windex at home? I recently discovered this remedy that makes your rings SPARKLE. Seriously, my ring has never been so clean. Even when I take it into the jeweler to have it cleaned, it has never looked as good as it does now.

What you'll need:
  • A glass/jar of your choice
  • Windex
  • A soft-bristled toothbrush
  1. Place your rings in the glass jar.
  2. Pour Windex into the jar (just enough to cover the rings).

  3. Let them soak for five minutes. You can swirl them around a little to loosen up the dirt particles.
  4. Remove your ring and dip your toothbrush into the Windex. Then lightly scrub your ring and diamonds. Make sure you have a soft toothbrush so you don't scratch your diamonds. 
  5. Rinse with warm water, and pat dry
  6. Look at your ring sparkle! :)
Xoxo, Kristin

DIY Makeup Brush Cleaner

There is no need to go out and buy an expensive brush cleaner solution when you can whip one up at home for less than 5 dollars. With three simple ingredients, you are bound to have these lying around in your kitchen. And if not, you can purchase them at any local grocery or drugstore!

What you'll need:
  • 1 cup of warm water
  • 1 tbsp of vinegar
  • 1 tbsp of dish soap
  • Mix the ingredients in a glass/jar of your choice.
  • Take a few brushes at a time and swirl them in the solution for about a minute. For my bigger brushes, I do two at a time. For my smaller eye brushes, I do three or four at a time.
  • After swirling for about a minute, rinse them under water to get all of the solution out.
  • Reshape the brushes, and leave them to dry overnight. I set mine on a towel to dry.
    It is literally amazing to see how much makeup and product comes off your brushes.

    It is recommended that you clean your makeup brushes every week to avoid getting bacteria and makeup built up in the brushes; which can lead to breakouts... eek! I'll be honest that I don't have time to clean mine every week, but I do mine every two weeks. I hope you all enjoyed this tutorial.
