Cleaning gold plated jewelry requires a gentle touch and the right cleaning techniques to avoid damaging the delicate gold plating. Here are some steps you can follow:

  1. Mix warm water and mild dish soap: Add a few drops of mild dish soap to a bowl of warm water.

  2. Soak the jewelry: Place the gold plated jewelry in the bowl of soapy water and let it soak for a few minutes.

  3. Clean the jewelry: Gently scrub the jewelry with a soft-bristled toothbrush, being careful not to scrub too hard or use an abrasive cleaner that could scratch the plating.

  4. Rinse the jewelry: Rinse the jewelry thoroughly under warm running water to remove any soap residue.

  5. Dry the jewelry: Use a soft, lint-free cloth to gently pat the jewelry dry. Avoid using a paper towel or any other material that could scratch the plating.

  6. Buff the jewelry: Use a microfiber cloth to gently buff the jewelry to a shine.

Remember to avoid using any harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the delicate gold plating. Also, avoid wearing your gold plated jewelry while swimming or showering, as exposure to water and chemicals can cause the plating to wear off more quickly.
