How to clean tungsten rings?

Tungsten carbide rings are among the wedding rings that require the least maintenance to keep it shiny like new.

However, it is a good idea to clean your ring thoroughly once a while just in case it was in contact with some harsh chemical without you knowing. Cleaning could also remove grease or lotion that stick on the surface of the ring. In most cases, a warm solution created from household soap is sufficient to do the job.
