Not cleaning jewellery
We wash our bodies, our hands, our clothes and our surroundings, but who can honestly say they take the time to wash their jewellery? All jewellery should be properly cleaned for both sparkle and sanitation, but piercings and rings especially. Why? Rings are an extension of the hygiene issues we covered with washing hands, and piercings have high contact with delicate skin, so any bacteria and germs on your piercings are easily transferred to your body. Infections are common with piercings, so be careful and wash your jewellery in saline solution for extra protection against any painful infections.
