How To Properly Clean Your New Piercing

Follow these steps to prevent infection:

  1. Always wash your hands before touching or cleaning your piercing. This is hard to remember, but any sort of bacteria that you may have on your hands could really mess with your piercing.
  2. Clean off any dirt off the area and from the jewelry with warm water.
  3. Gently wash the area around the piercing with a mild liquid antibacterial soap every day. There is also a sea-salt piercing cleanser that is sold at your average department store.
  4. Never use a towel on your new piercing. Bacteria may cause an issue. Instead, use napkins or a paper towel.
  5. Repeat steps 1-4 twice a day. Overdoing it or under-doing it may irritate the area.
  6. Since every new piercing needs air,never use an anti-ornament on it. Anti-ornaments block air from getting through.
  7. Never use hydrogen peroxide as it can irritate healing tissue.
