Once you have made your solution, take an old brush with soft bristles and dip it in the soap. Now start moving the brush gently on the surface of the earrings, in a circular motion. Once you have cleaned the upper part of your earring dip them again in the mixture and let it get soaked for another 10-15 minutes. Then take out the earring from the solution, and pat dry them using a towel.
