HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR TEUFEL MOTION JEWELRY
Care and Cleaning
Your ring is very easy to clean by following a few simple guidelines. To keep your ring moving freely, we recommend cleaning on a regular basis. Your ring will not spin as freely once the bearing mechanism becomes dirty.
1. For home cleaning, soak Teufel motion jewelry in a solution of 1 part "Mr. Clean" (non-ammonia "Blue" formula) to 1 part water for about 30 minutes. Soaking your ring overnight in this solution is fine if that is more convenient.
2. Follow by rinsing your ring thoroughly under cool running water. The ring will not spin freely again until completely dry. A blow dryer may be used for faster results.
DO NOT USE AMMONIA, JEWELRY CLEANER CONTAINING AMMONIA, BLEACH OR ANY OTHER SUBSTANCE THAT CONTAINS AMMONIA OR BLEACH TO CLEAN YOUR TEUFEL JEWELRY.
Even though Teufel Swinger Rings are made with precision stainless steel ball bearings, the use of ammonia, jewelry cleaner containing ammonia, or bleach can damage the ball bearing.
To keep your jewelry spinning freely, we recommend that you avoid contact with the following:
-Hair Spray or Mousse
-Hand Soap (we recommend you remove your ring while washing hands)
Hair Spray, hand lotion, and hand soap will slow down the movement of your ring. Just a simple cleaning will result in your ring spinning freely again.
While wearing Teufel motion jewelry, avoid wearing exceptionally fuzzy sweaters and clothing. The tiny fibers can become entangled around the bearing and eventually it can require factory disassembly to remove the fibers.
Our bearings are meant to "run dry". This means they do not require oil of any kind. The oil can act as a "magnet" and attract dirt into the ball bearing. Dirt and grit prevent the ring from spinning freely, and wearing your ring while dirty can shorten the life of the ball bearings.
SERVICE AND REPAIRS
Repairs and service, other than routine cleaning should be carried out at the Teufel factory in order to maintain the integrity of your ring and protect the warranty.
