Watch Maintenance: Home Edition

So how do you guys/gals keep your pieces clean at home?

I have microfiber cloths, soap, water. And I try to clean my pieces during each rotation with a deep clean every month.

·

I usually give my watches a wipe down with a eyeglass wipe when I remember. I usually wear g shocks so I wash them with dish soap and a vibrating toothbrush when they get grimy. 

·

I just wipe the crystals with a microfiber cloth after I’m done wearing them for the day, and then if I am wearing a highly polished watch, I will wipe the fingerprints. Every once in a while they get a soapy toothbrushing but that’s about it for mine.  

I have been getting a ton of targeted ads on Instagram for watch cleaning sprays and it makes me wonder if it’s just a drop of dish soap and water, or if there is actually something special that makes the metals shine brighter. 

·

Microfiber cloths all over my house, in the car etc. When I clean them I use fragrance free dish soap and rinse for a long time. i'm a bit obsessive

·

T-shirt wipe down, wet Finger to clean the crystal. Point is not to get them dirty in the first place. 

·

Straight into to the utensil basket of the dishwasher (no drying cycle: they stay too hot).

·

All hail the microfibre cloth!

I do pretty much the same thing, and I too have been seeing those same ads. Not sure what the deal is.
