Can I wear a silicone ring every day?
You can definitely wear a silicone ring all the time because it is very durable. In other words, you need to know some important information about the longevity and durability of silicone rings.
So with that in mind, let's dive into the topic of silicone rings, whether you want them to be a part of your everyday jewelry or are considering buying silicone wedding bands for your big day. Here's everything you need to know.
Silicone rings are extremely tough due to the following properties they have.
They can withstand extreme temperatures. They are flexible and waterproof. This makes them versatile enough to wear when you're on an outdoor adventure - and when you'd normally leave your metal ring at home.
They have better grip. One of the dangers of wearing metal rings is that they move around a lot, which can cause them to break. Silicone rings, such as those made by QALO, wrap around your finger, so they grip better and stay secure.
They can break in front of your finger. Now, while silicone is very durable and strong, it is not hard. This is important because if you find that you hurt your finger, your ring will not make your injury worse. Silicone rings are flexible and will break after about 20 pounds of force, so you won't get hurt if your finger gets caught on something.
They do not conduct heat or electricity. Silicone rings do not transfer heat or electricity, which makes them safer. This is especially important if you are an electrician or firefighter, as they can prevent accidents on the job. It also means you don't need to leave the silicone ring at home because you're worried that contact with these sources might damage it.
Based on the above, you may be wondering how long a silicone ring will last. The good news is that as long as you love your silicone ring, it will last as long as you do.
Here are some important tips to follow when caring for your silicone ring
Your silicone ring needs to be cleaned regularly, just like the rest of your jewelry. To clean it effectively, make sure you soak it in warm water and a few drops of detergent. Rub the ring with your fingers to remove dirt.
Do not use any abrasive brushes when cleaning the ring as this can damage it.
How do I deep clean?
Every few months, you should give your silicone ring a good deep clean. You can clean it with a 2:1 ratio of vinegar to hydrogen peroxide.
You want to soak the ring in this mixture for half an hour and then gently scrub it with an old soft toothbrush to remove any bacteria and stains.
