If soap, cold water, and elevating your arm isn't helping you get that stubborn ring off your finger, the wikiHow site suggests an interesting method: using dental floss. String the floss under the ring, and wrap it around your finger. Then, unwind the floss to move the ring up your finger. What's your favorite stuck ring solution? Let us know in the comments.
