Clean Your Piercing Daily
First wash your hands thoroughly. Never touch your piercing or jewelry with dirty hands.
Saturate a cotton ball with warm water, and gently wipe away any "crusties" that have gathered around the piercing site. Throw the cotton ball away.
Apply a generous amount of liquid soap into your hand, and apply to the piercing site and jewelry.
Rinse the piercing and jewelry several times with warm water, ensuring that all soap has been removed.
Dry your piercing with a clean towel.
Sea Salt Soaks 2-3 Times a Week
Wash your hands thoroughly with an antibacterial or anti microbial soap.
Place a pinch of sea salt in the bottom of a small disposable cup.
Add hot tap water - as hot as you can stand - to the salt. Use about 3 ounces of water - which is just over half-full in a 5 ounce cup.
If possible, invert the cup right over the piercing and allow it to stay there for 5 minutes. This usually works well with naval piercings. If you can't create a sufficient seal against the skin with the cup, then soak a cotton ball in the salt-water solution and apply the cotton ball to the piercing. When it cools down, throw it away and place a newly saturated cotton ball on the piercing. Do this for 5 minutes.
Rinse the piercing with warm water and dry with a clean towel.
