I just got my ear pierced I'm just wondering about different methods to clean/disinfect them? :)
depends, for a helix piercing use saline if its a regular piercing in the earlobe use regular rubbing alcohol :) take a cotton ball or bud and soak it in the liquid then get it all around the front and back of the piercing then with clean hands twirl the earring at least 3 times :) do this when u wake up and when u go to bed :)
Saline solution works wonders. When I got my nose pierced they gave me a baggy of salt which I mixed with hot water. Four years later and I've never had an issue!
All piercings should be cleaned with sea salt salution (1 teaspoon of sea salt to 1 glass of water) 2-3 times a day
Lobes usually take between 1 and 2 months to heal and cartilage can take anywhere between 2 months and a year to heal fully
What about Epsom salt and hot water?
Regular salt with a cup or warm water should do the job ive used it for all my piercings and never got an infection. 2-3 times a day
Bactine spray! You spray and manipulate the piercing whichever way you can (twist, turn, etc.) and the medication penetrates the hole and gets inside to keep infections away and promote healing.
Sea salt soaks!!! Never use alcohol on a new piercing, it will dry it out. Get a small container, sea salt, and warm water. Mix the salt and water and use a q-tip to apply to the piercing. Use it everyday and dont touch your piercing with dirty hands.

I use the stuff they gave me at Claire's.. (I would NEVER recommend getting your ears pierced there, but their cleaning solution works pretty well.)
I use the "band-aid" anticeptic wash on all my piercings and I have quite a few it has always been fabulous for me it also relieves pain!!
Alcohol always worked for me
I got mine pierced at Claire's and they give you cleaning solution when you're done
I use contact lens solution which is a form of saline solution
Debbie can u take a picture of the stuff you use
Best solution ever sold at Von's is Dr. Bronner's 18-1 hemp tea tree pure Castile soap all organic in a small 2fl oz orange bottle
