Here’s how to clean your gold jewelry at home:

What you’ll need:

  • Bowl
  • Warm water
  • Mild dish soap (like Dawn)
  • Soft-bristled toothbrush (ideally a baby toothbrush)
  • Microfiber cloth (or another soft, lint-free cloth)


  1. Prepare the cleaning solution: Fill the bowl with warm water (not hot) and add a few drops of mild dish soap. Swirl gently to create a light lather.
  2. Soak your jewelry: Place your gold jewelry in the cleaning solution and let it soak for 10-15 minutes. This will loosen any dirt or grime.
  3. Gently scrub: For best results, use a separate bowl of clean warm water for rinsing. After soaking, gently brush the gold jewelry with the soft-bristled toothbrush, paying particular attention to any crevices or details. Rinse the brush frequently in the clean water to remove loosened dirt.
  4. Rinse and dry: Once you’ve brushed all the surfaces, thoroughly rinse the jewelry under clean running water. Dry completely with a microfiber cloth or another soft, lint-free cloth.

Additional tips:

  • Avoid using hot water, harsh chemicals, or abrasive cleaners, as these can damage the gold.
  • If your gold jewelry has gemstones, check their specific cleaning requirements before using this method. Some gemstones may be more delicate and require professional cleaning.
  • For heavily soiled gold jewelry, particularly with intricate details, it’s always best to consult a professional jeweler for a safe and thorough cleaning.
