How should I clean a belly dancing chain?



2004

Hi,

I just picked up a belly dancing chain from a second hand store, and I was wondering how should I clean it? and what is the best (and quickest) method? the chain is made out of many individual flat links which have been punched in to create round impressions (so there are hollows on the reverse side), and has chains hanging off it, and little bells. the links look something like this:

I'm not sure what it is made out of - it appears to be a light faded yellow colour, and is very hard. It is tarnished to various degrees - some parts of it have a grey-green tarnish, at the worst, otherwise it just looks a bit dull. I'm not sure what else I can say to describe it. any advice would be welcomed and I'm sorry if I haven't included enough detail.

Thanks,

You can use 5% citric acid solution! Rubbing with precipitated chalk/water paste may help too.

Good luck!
