White Gold Cleaning
White gold has grown in popularity as a material for engagement and wedding rings. Many of my friends will only wear gold if it is white, owing to the luster of the finish. White gold will need to be cleaned on a regular basis to remove dirt, soap and lotion residue, and other oils that can dull its surface. Cleaning white gold is a simple task. You could take it to a jeweler for professional cleaning, but a good maintenance cleaning can be done at home using products you already have in your cabinets. If you're going to pay for quality jewelry, investing 20-30 minutes once a month for a thorough cleaning is a wise decision. Here are some easy steps for cleaning your white gold.
White Gold Cleaning Procedures
Collect all of your white gold cleaning supplies
A bowl, warm water, mild dish soap, baking soda, a soft brush, and a microfiber towel are all required. Just in case, keep a colander on hand. If you believe it is necessary, you can replace the microfiber towel with a cloth designed specifically for polishing jewelry. Examine the jewelry you intend to clean carefully for loose gems or damaged prongs. Do this to avoid the panic and heartbreak of discovering you've lost a stone down the drain.
Soak the white gold in a soap and water solution
In a bowl, combine a few drops of mild dish soap with warm water and stir. Insert your white gold gently and soak it for 10-15 minutes to help loosen any buildup. Never use boiling water. Set a timer to remind you to remove the jewelry, as leaving it in for too long may cause damage to some pieces.
Use a soft brush and baking soda to clean your white gold
Make a paste by combining baking soda and a little water. Apply a small amount of paste and gently scrub the white gold with a soft brush. Special jewelry cleaning brushes are available, but a soft toothbrush will suffice. Take care not to scrub too vigorously. You don't want to scratch the surface or wear away the rhodium plating.
Rinse the cleaners from the white gold thoroughly
Rinse your jewelry in a warm stream of water. If any cleaner residue is allowed to dry, it can dull the white gold's appearance and attract more dirt. Be extremely cautious because this is the step where things can go horribly wrong. To avoid dropping a ring down the drain, which can take hours to fix, either use the stopper or place the jewelry in a colander.
Buff the white gold with a soft cloth after drying it
Drying thoroughly will remove any remaining cleaner residue and assist in avoiding water spots. Pat dry the jewelry on one section of a soft cloth or microfiber towel. Ensure that any moisture in the crevices is removed. Buff the jewelry with another section of the cloth to bring out its best luster. All that remains is to sit back and take in the scenery.
