Have you ever put a ring on and couldn’t get it off?
Don’t panic – we’ve all probably done this at one time or another.
Our fingers swell with the seasons and at different times of the day depending on blood pressure, exercise, humidity, diet (salt, food sensitivities) and maybe even star alignment.
Here are a couple of methods to get a tight ring off of your finger without wrenching or causing you unnecessary stress:
1. Cold soapy water. The cold water reduces swelling and shrinks the finger while the soap lubricates the skin.
2. Windex. A few spritzs on the puffy finger will usually allow a tight ring to slide off. Maybe it’s the alcohol or other ingredients, but it works like magic.
3. Olive oil. Better to use this one with rings that don’t have gems or stones. Works great with sterling silver and gold bands.
