How to Remove a Stuck Ring

- Feb 03, 2018-

Method1General

Place your index finger gently on the stuck ring, and thumb under. Start twisting the ring gently back and forth, while slowly pulling the ring out.

Make sure that you don't pull and tug too much. It could cause additional swelling and make it even harder to remove the ring.


Method2 Lubricant Method

Use something slippery. Plenty of skin-safe household items can be used as lubricants to get the ring off in one piece and with minimal damage to skin. Ammonia-based cleaners such as Windex often work best. If the skin is broken or cut, choose your lubricant wisely. Otherwise, try any of these, using a generous amount at least as far as the knuckle.

  • Vaseline

  • Windex or other window cleaners
    (professional jewelers often use this and make sure its safe on skin, read the bottle first)

  • Hand lotion (works particularly well)

  • Butter - if possible

  • Hair conditioner/shampoo

  • Petroleum jelly or antibiotic ointment
    (the best choice if the skin is broken)

  • Cooking spray, soft butter, or cooking oil

  • Shortening (lard)

  • Peanut butter -smooth, not chunky!! (may be a little sticky but works to get the ring off)

  • Soap and water

  • Baby Oil

  • Ring Release

Move the ring around, getting some of the lubricant underneath. Turn the ring around the finger a time or two, and spray or rub more lubricant on as well. Gently pull the ring off the finger, working it back and forth and turning it as you go, as necessary.
