Then, is gold plated flatware safe?
Gold plated flatware is very corrosion resistant and can be stored safely practically anywhere.
Also, how do you remove tarnish from gold plated silverware? If it's true gold plating over silver plate or sterling the best way to clean it is to wash it by hand using warm water and mild soap and then, if it isn't shiny enough, take a small amount of baking soda [paid link to product info at Amazon] on a damp and very soft cloth or sponge and gently rub the flatware.
Similarly, you may ask, is gold plated flatware worth anything?
Unfortunately, plated gold flatware typically only contains a microscopic layer of gold. In some cases, manufacturers plated the gold over sterling silver. If your set is gold on sterling silver, the set should be worth more than $50.00 for the silver value (market price of silver and weight depending).
How do you clean 24k gold plated?
Every after use, clean your plated jewelry with a cotton ball or a very soft cloth to remove any dust and dirt it has acquired. Gently rubbing the surface of your gold plated jewelry using a soft jewelry cloth also helps restore shine. If your jewelry needs more cleaning you may clean it with warm, soapy water.
