How to put in and take out little hoop earrings Mystic Moon Shop

What to do when your new tiny hoop earrings arrive!

Care and Cleaning: Before putting the earring in the ear, clean it and the ear lobe with a cotton ball and a dab of rubbing alcohol, add a drop of neosporin to the end of the earring and clide it into the hole. This will help the earring so it slides in easy and help keep it clean and minimize irritation. If you tend to get irritation easy re-add the neosporin for a couple nights on the earring in the ear. 

Putting in and taking them out: Take the hoop in both hands between your fingers and pull the end out of the hook (if there isn't a hook ie: endless hoops skip this step)  Twist the two ends in opposite directions to open it (if you pull the hoop apart you will lose the shape of the earring) Twist them open so that the lobe fits between the two sides and place it over the ear, push the end through the piercing hole and twist it (in reverse) to close the earring, secure the end in the hook (unless there isn't a hook ie endless hoops them the two ends just meet together. To see this in real time watch our video "how to put in little hoop earrings" 

Putting in Little Hoop Earrings Mystic Moon Shop

Tiny hoop earrings can be left in for extended periods of time but they still need care and cleaning, just like any other jewelry (maybe more so as they are sticking in a hole in your body) A little trick we use to clean our jewelry is to put toothpaste between your fingers and rub the jewelry in the piercing then rinse in the shower. You can also use commercial cleaners from your local grocery store or drug store made for the metal you are cleaning, take them out, soak them in the solution and scrub with a soft brush. Vinegar and water works great for cleaning jewelry too!

Do NOT use hydrogen peroxide to clean your jewelry as it will oxidize it!

Do NOT use sea salt saline to clean your piercing as it will also tarnish your jewelry!

Healing is super important. Leave the jewelry in that you were given when you were pierced for the period of time they stated. Don't change your jewelry until the piercing is healed. Doing so could slow your healing process and cause more problems
