How to Clean Gold Plated Items?

Answer

The best way to clean gold plated items is to use a cotton swab and some warm soapy water. You don't want to use a toothbrush or anything abrasive because it can cause the gold plating to scratch or to rub off. You can soak it in warm water with a little bit of dish detergent and then wipe dirt off by using the cotton swab. You can allow it to air dry naturally in order for it to stay as shiny as possible.
