How To Clean 14k Gold Jewlery?

If you feel your 14k gold jewelry needs a touch up or light cleaning, here are some methods to use to clean your gold jewelry at home. Use mild liquid dish soap (Blue Dawn is recommend) with tepid water. Make sure the water is not a hot temperature, you want the water to feel slightly warm. It’s important to use a dish soap that is mild, and does not have any excess moisturizes or perfumes. Fill up a bowl with the mixture of soap and water. Let the 14k gold jewelry sit in the watery soap mixture for about 10-15 minutes. Once it is soaked, place the 14k gold jewelry on a cloth and gently polish with a cotton sob, soft bristle toothbrush, or a polishing cloth.

If you are looking to clean your gold watch at home, please follow the same guidelines listed above. Again, use a mild dish soap and tepid water. Make sure the water is not too hot, and don’t use dish soap that contains excessive perfumes or moisturizes. Gently use a soft cloth or bristle tooth brush over the face of the watch. Do not press down and do not vigorously scrub. If your gold watch has diamonds on the face, make sure to use a Q-Tip gently around the diamonds. If the band of your gold watch is a metal material, and not a rubber strap, you can follow the same instructions for cleaning the band of the watch.
