[need advice] Cleaning Carved White Jade

I need advice on cleaning a small rectangular table top which
comprises of many small carved white jade pieces, about 6 x 4 x
1/2 cm each. The table top has been exposed to years of
accumulated grime and dust. Any would be much
appreciated. Thank you.

Use a good detergent in warm water and scrub gently with a soft
brush - a 2 inch paint brush would do. It may take a while, but
DON’T USE ANY SOLVENTS!! These might destroy the adhesive. Rinse
well with clean warm water and dry with an absorbent cloth,
like a well-used tea towel. Cheers
