Step 1: Wash your hands thoroughly with liquid antibacterial soap and hot water.
Never touch healing piercings with dirty hands. This is vital for avoiding infections.
Step 2: Prepare the piercing area for cleansing by thoroughly rinsing with running, warm water.
Step 3: Apply a small amount of the cleaning solution to the area with your clean hands. Make sure to be very gentle while cleansing the area and the jewelry.
You do not need to rotate your jewelry during cleaning, or anytime for that matter.
Step 4: Allow the solution to cleanse there for a minute.
Don’t purposely work anything other than the cleanser onto the inside of the piercing.
Step 5: Rinse the area thoroughly under warm running water to completely remove the cleanser from the piercing.
Step 6: Gently pat dry with either sterile, non-woven gauze, or a clean, soft, single use paper towel. Do not use cloth towels, as they can harbor bacteria.
Each body is unique, and healing times can vary considerably. If your piercing is tender, sore to the touch, secreting fluid, or accumulating any crusty material, you should continue the aftercare regimen, even if it is past the stated average healing time range.
