  • Clean your white gold with soap and baking soda

Make a paste by mixing baking soda and water. Take a soft brush and apply that onto it and gently rub the brush on your white gold. Don’t rub it too hard.

  • Rinse the cleanser off the white gold

After applying the paste and gently cleaning it, wash it off with little warm water to clear the residue and dirt. Make sure you clean it properly as any residue left can dull your white gold and also attract more dirt towards it. Clean with soft hands with towel and dry it properly. After this process you just have to sit back and admire the beauty of your white gold.
