Gold can be very sensitive to solvents and detergents and can be difficult to wash, depending on model and assembly. See how to properly clean your gold jewelry without spoiling it.
– Analyze dirt degree
The first step for a clean gold jewelry is to see how deep the dust reached links and very small spaces.
If your gold jewelry is just a little dirty, you can clean it easily with warm water and dishwashing detergent. Leave the jewelry to soak in a cup of warm water in which you dripped 2-3 drops of detergent.
If they are dirty for long time, jewelry items should be cleaned easily if you use carbonated mineral water, whose bubbles and acid will clean properly.
Whether they are only slightly dirty or dusty, jewelry items should be soaked at least 15 minutes before you start to actually clean them.
– Use a very soft toothbrush
To clean dirt lodged in the jewelry holes, use a toothbrush with very soft bristles.
If you don’t have a soft toothbrush, use an eyebrow brush that you don’t use. Rotate the brushes in clockwise direction and don’t rub too hard because you can detach its frames and pebbles.
