How to Clean Gold-Plated Tea Sets


Gold-plated tea sets allow you to entertain your guests in style. Tea sets contain a serving tray, a teapot, a sugar bowl, a milk jug, and several tea cups and saucers. Although they are costly, gold-plated tea sets are durable, providing you and your family with years of service. Caring for your tea set is relatively easy, as long as you take care not to scratch the gold plating.

Things You'll Need

  • Gentle dish-washing liquid
  • Soft-tooth brush or sponge

Fill your kitchen sink halfway with warm water.

Add a few drops of dish-washing liquid.

Immerse your tea set in the warm, soapy water.

Scrub the pieces of the tea set with a soft toothbrush or a sponge.

Rinse the pieces with warm water.

Tips & Warnings

  • Do not use abrasive pads to clean your gold-plated tea set.
  • Do not wash your gold-plated tea set in the dishwasher.
  • If your gold plating becomes dull over time, you can restore the shine by rubbing a small amount of baking soda on the pieces.
