For actual dust you can gently vacuum the roses with a brush tool (as gently as possible with the smallest brush possible) as long as they are no loose areas. If you are not comfortable with vacuuming you can use a small paint brush to remove dust from in between petals.
Cleaning your Forever Roses is quite easy once you get use to the process. All of the roses benefit by a quick light wipe from a lint free polishing cloth every once in a while. Do not rub harshly or frequently (daily or weekly cleanings should not be necessary) as that could cause harm to the finish over time. We sell cleaning/polishing cloths online but there are similar and equally effective cloths sold at many department and jewelry stores.

GOLD and PLATINUM ROSE CLEANING
Jewelry cleaner (such as Connoisseurs Jewelry Cleaner in the red jar) appropriate for gold jewelry (or platinum if you have a platinum rose) can be used on the gold rose stems (avoiding the lacquered areas the best you can if it is a gold trimmed rose) if more of a cleaning is necessary. Make sure that the cloths and cleaners state that they are meant for gold on their labeling.
You can wet the roses as needed but do not submerge or allow water to dry on the rose as that could lead to staining. For best results, when rinsing cleaner, if required, use distilled water. Never use force to clean the roses as that will eventually lead to the removal of the gold layer from the rose.
SILVER ROSE CLEANING
Again, a polishing cloth can be used to remove the first signs of tarnish and should help the rose retain its luster when used from time to time as you see the tarnish reappear but when the rose requires more of a cleaning, we recommend the following process be done on an occasional basis:
If the rose requires more of a cleaning, just use Wright's Silver Cream (or similar silver cleaning cream) found at most grocery stores. Use one of those small foam tipped staining brushes with the wood stick handle, 1" wide, cost around 30 cents. Use a small regular paint brush to wipe off the excess polish while rinsing under running water. Dry immediately with a lint free cloth to minimize spotting and do not "soak" the roses in water just rinse. If you have distilled water that would be ideal but you can use tap water as long as you do not allow the water to dry on the rose. The whole process takes less than 5 minutes and it works well. NEVER use Tarnex or other chemical dips as they will destroy the rose
