Wondering if it's ok to wear your rings to work? Should you take them off before washing your hands or leave them on?
If you are a store owner, now is a great time to talk to your customers about jewelry cleaners...
Unfortunately, using hand sanitizer and other harsh chemicals can be damaging to some precious stones and metals. Studies have also shown that wearing jewelry leaves room for bacteria to thrive even if you are washing your hands regularly. If you still choose to wear rings and bracelets it is important to move the ring or bracelet up and down to lather up the part of your skin the jewelry is covering. For a more thorough cleaning at the end of the day several jewelry professionals have suggested soaking the jewelry in warm water with a little bit of soap and then gently scrubbing it with a soft bristled tooth brush.
