Effortless Steps to Clean Your Earrings for Prolonged Use and Healthy Ears

Earrings add a finishing touch to your look, but they also tend to accumulate dirt over time. Frequent wearing and lack of regular cleaning affect your ear health negatively. Here's a simple yet practical cleaning guide for your precious adornments to keep your earrings sparkling and your ears healthy.


Gathering the Essentials

Before we delve into the cleaning process, let's assemble the necessary tools:


  • A mug or any container to clean the earrings
  • A stirring stick or spatula
  • Antibacterial liquid soap (dish soap or hand soap)
  • A strainer to filter out the earrings
  • A clean towel

Remember, antibacterial soap is crucial to eliminate all bacteria and germs thoroughly.


The Cleaning Process: Step by Step

With the required items ready, let's kickstart the cleaning.


Preparation Phase

  • Water Filling: Begin by filling your chosen mug with water—just enough to fully immerse your earrings.
  • Soap Addition: Add a few drops of your antibacterial soap into the water.
  • Stirring: Use your clean spatula or stirring stick to mix the solution until the soap is fully dissolved.

Cleaning Phase

  • Immersing the Earrings: Once the soapy mixture is ready, immerse your earrings. Ensure all parts of the earrings are submerged.
  • Stirring: Give the solution another good stir to allow the soap to penetrate and clean every crevice of your earrings.
  • Rinsing and Drying Phase
  • Straining: Place your strainer on top of another container or over a sink and carefully pour out the soapy mixture, leaving the earrings in the strainer.
  • Rinsing: Rinse your earrings thoroughly under clean water to remove the soapy residue.
  • Drying: Finally, gently dry your earrings with a clean towel or paper towel.

The frequency of cleaning your earrings 

It depends on your usage. If you wear your earrings daily, a good rule of thumb is to clean them every two to three days. For less frequent wearers, cleaning once a week is adequate. Remember, the more frequently you wear your earrings, the more often you should clean them.


In Summary
