How to clean a steel jewel with soap and water? Simple: get two basins full of hot water of a suitable size to contain it: in one of them add a few drops of neutral dish soap, then moisten the corner of a microfiber cloth and rub the jewel, following the texture of the metal.
If your jewel is very dirty, gently use a toothbrush with soft bristles, or a toothpick in the most difficult points to reach, avoiding rubbing the gems, if any.
Once this operation is over, rinse the jewel in the second bowl, removing any soap residue.
