Default how can I clean gold plated tracks?

Hi folks,

I would like to clean fingerprints from my gold plated board.
Also I have noticed that the color is not as shiny as it was when I first unpacked the board.
I am wondering if there is a good solution I can use for it.


Thank you all.

Use standard PCB cleaner?

Gold does not tarnish, so fingerprints, which are grease afterall can be removed with soap & warm water.... assuming there are no components fitted!

Lemon acid may be used to clean off fatty fingerprints.
