METHODS TO CLEAN GOLD
The above description will help you to know about cleaning GOLD.
Gold doesn't tarnish, but it can be dirtied or dulled by the oil in your skin, body lotion, makeup or other substances. There are lots of products out there that promise to clean gold, but you can do it easily with mild detergent and a soft cloth.
1: Mix a squeeze of mild dish detergent with warm water in a bowl. 2: Put the gold item into the soap mixture and let sit for a few minutes. 3: Use a soft toothbrush to gently scrub the jewelry. 4: Remove item from soapy water, rinse it and dry thoroughly with a soft polishing cloth.
1..............It is wise to check not only clasps, mountings, and prongs but also earrings posts for damage before washing the jewelry.
2...........Always be sure gold jewelry is completely dry before storing it.
3...........Never use a harsh or abrasive cleaner, a stiff brush or a scouring pad on gold.
