The local jewelry shop, Cindi’s, in my town was offering free ring cleanings today. I try never to miss the opportunity to do free things so sure enough the kids and I were there when they opened today. I’m sure there’s nothing they wanted more than to have their first customer of the day have a 4, 3, and 2 year old in tow with them! Luckily, the lovely ladies who work there are great sports about it which I knew since we had previously bought Tim a Father’s Day watch there. So the kids devoured the complimentary muffins and left sticky finger prints all over the display cases while I looked longingly at all the pretty jewelry.
My rings hadn’t been cleaned since we bought them six years ago because who has time for that? I actually ended up leaving them there for a few hours so they could get a good soaking and scrubbing. I made the poor girls really earn their money today! I got them back this afternoon and boy do they SPARKLE! I had never given much thought to how dirty they were since they looked fine enough and are just an everyday staple here. Well let me tell you, a professional cleaning makes a HUGE difference. I’m loving it and my service announcement to you today is to go get your rings cleaned. Once you do, come back here and thank me. Trust me, you’re going to want to.
