moisture, perspiration and cosmetics (especially perfumes) can dull gold, while soap can dampen its luster. a soft chamois cloth is the best way to clean and polish jewelry at home.
grease can be removed by dipping jewelry into plain rubbing alcohol.
to remove tarnish from gold use soap and warm water mixed with a few drops of ammonia in a large bowl (never clean jewelry in a sink to avoid losing any pieces that may be loose). gentle cleaning with a soft toothbrush helps. after cleaning, rinse with warm water and air dry. finally use a soft lint free cloth to gently polish.
an ultrasonic cleaning machine also works well with metals but should not be used with gemstones. however, this should only be done by professional jewellers.
