How To Clean Your Earrings So They Last Longer 

1. Put your earrings in a bowl of lukewarm water. Don’t use hot water. It could melt the glue that holds them together or damage stones.

2. Add some mild soap (any kind would work). Remember that you don’t want to put too much soap in-you’re not making soup! 

3. Let your earrings soak for about five minutes.

4. Take them out and dry them off with a clean cloth. If you don’t have one, try using toilet paper (not the kind you use to wipe-the other kinds).

5. You can also make your earrings cleaner by mixing water with rubbing alcohol in a small jar or bottle.

6. Put your earrings in the solution, then take them back out after five to 10 minutes. Remember-do not store your earrings in the solution! If there are any stubborn stains on your earrings, you can use an old toothbrush with mild soap to scrub them off. Then rinse your earrings again and dry them off.

7. Use the solution only every once in a while-don’t use it too often, or your earrings will lose their luster!

8. Let your earrings air dry before you put them away (preferably overnight). Don’t try putting your earrings back on until they are completely dry, or you’ll risk trapping moisture and bacteria on your earlobes.

9. To make sure your earrings don’t bend or break, try not to sleep with wet earrings on.

10. If you want to store them overnight, put them in a plastic baggie or use an old makeup container (be sure no one has used it before). Also, you can use paper tissue instead of a cloth or make your earring storage box or display case.

11. Take care of your earrings, and they’ll last longer and keep their sparkle!
