First of all, are you tring to just print gold foil, or a multicoloured image, including gold?

If it's just gold, ensure that on your artwork, everything to be printed is black. Click File -> Print, and click Properties.When the printer dialogue pops up, select Spot Colour, and click the Spot Colour button. Select Single Ink, and Select Gold Foil.

I bought a silver jewelry polishing cloth. Can it be cleaned?

No if you wash it you will ruin it, the black is just Silver Oxide and will not affect the way the cloth cleans the Silver. Just wipe the residue of the Silver being polished.

I want to print metallic gold and gold-foil TITLES on a standard CMYK background with an Alps 5000P. What is the procedure to overlay the spot color where I want to print the gold?

Create a mask or layer for each spot color you want to print using only black. When printing spot colors anything on the mask in black will be printed in the spot color. For foils, print a couple of layers of black ink before you print the foil to get a very good effect. Remember to check the overlay option so the paper doesn't get ejected.
