White gold is gold that has been plated with rhodium to give it a silver lustre. It is a popular choice for jewellery, but over time, it can acquire a dull and tarnished look from routine wear. If you have a white gold necklace that is beginning to look a little old, a basic cleaning is simple and can be accomplished at home.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Pour some hot water into a bowl. You do not need boiling water; hot water from the tap will be perfectly suited for this basic cleaning.

  2. 2

    Pour a few drops of non-detergent soap into the water. Non-detergent soap generally refers to soaps that do not have sulphates in them. Non-detergent soaps are gentler than soaps that do contain these substances.

  3. 3

    Agitate the water briefly with your hand to create suds.

  4. 4

    Dip the soft-bristled brush into the suds.

  5. 5

    Scrub the necklace with the brush gently. This will dislodge any dirt or oil that might be lurking in the crevices.

  6. 6

    Dry the white gold necklace with a soft, dry cloth.
