I just made my first necklace, bracelet, and earring set entirely made of swarovski crystals and silver-plated spacers and clasps. How do I clean them when they start to use their shine a bit from wearing?

I ALSO MAKE JEWELRY WITH SWAR. CRY.  I'VE NEVER HAD TO CLEAN THEM BUT I WOULD THINK A SOFT LINT FREE CLOTH WOULD WORK.

I collect older rhinestone/crystal pins.  Most books on this subject suggest  Dawn.  With a soft cloth gently wash in the soapy water.  It has

worked very well for me.
