Add a few drops of mild dishwashing liquid to a bowl filled with two cups of warm water. Drop your gold pieces into the solution and let it soak for about 15 minutes. Lift a piece of jewelry out of the solution and gently scrub it with a soft-bristle toothbrush to remove any dirt lodged in nooks and crannies.
Put some toothpaste on an old toothbrush and gently rub the toothpaste into the silver. Let it sit for a few minutes and wash it off. If you're trying to shine a chain, put toothpaste on the chain, and pull it through a wash cloth or paper towel. You'll see the cloth turn black and you'll know you're cleaning the piece.
If you are still unable to clean your Helen Ficalora jewelry, we offer complimentary cleanings. Contact our customer service at 877.754.2676 for more details.
