Yes – I think anything involving soap and water will keep dust at bay. You get bird shit on cars and wash it off – try the same with bells.

I am not in the habit of talking crap, but I'll make an exception in this case

Soaking with good ol' soap, water and applying elbow grease is
probably the best method (avoid bleach)

You could try a domestic peroxide cleaner such as Lysol Power & Free
Multi-Purpose Cleaner

Or cover it with black lead - that seems to be a cure for many ills in
some quarters! :(

Good luck!
