Please ensure that you’ve properly disinfected or sterilized all jewelry before inserting it into a piercing. Improper disinfection leads to infected piercings.
We highly recommend cleaning your jewelry with antibiotic soap and warm water. This soap is the best we’ve ever used: Provon Medicated Lotion Soap with Chloroxylenol for cleaning earrings and piercings.
The use of rubbing alcohol or harsh chemicals will not negatively affect the 316L surgical grade stainless steel. However, rubbing alcohol or harsh chemicals can cause discoloration of the gems or acrylic pearl styles, and the breakdown of the adhesives used to attach the gems.
Also, before inserting your ComfyEarrings, screw and unscrew the back a couple of times to get a feel for the threading.
If your ComfyEarrings feel ‘stuck,’ they may be over-tightened from the factory. Try a small pair of needle nose pliers to get a little extra grip. (We use duct tape on the pliers to protect our jewelry.)
Before handling your ComfyEarrings over a sink –likely where your mirror is– place a towel across your sink to catch any dropped jewelry or pieces. This will help keep little pieces from going down the drain or bouncing away and getting lost.
How to Insert ComfyEarrings
The next generation of comfort is here, and they’re even easier to use!
To insert ComfyEarrings into your piercing simply unscrew the back then insert the post from the front like you would any regular stud earring.
Then just hold the flat back in place behind your ear and twist the front setting while holding the flat back still.
The back should ‘stick’ to your finger making it easy to hold in place. If you’re having difficulty holding the back, a little piece of double-sided tape on your fingertip will do the trick. (You might also try wearing latex rubber gloves to get a grip on the back while you twist the earring in the front.)
Remember, once you insert your ComfyEarrings, you can leave them in for days, weeks, months, years! Sleep and shower in your ComfyEarrings with ease. Just remember to check to make sure they’re tight once a day.
If you lose an earring back, you can purchase a replacement set here.
If you’re having a hard time inserting ComfyEarrings, the problem is probably the blunt end of the post. Instead of stabbing through your ear like traditional earrings, they might take a bit of wiggling to get them in the first few times.
If it’s been a while since you’ve worn earrings, you might need to use a regular earring (because of its needle-like post) to open the hole back up.
If you do this, please keep in mind that your ears may be sore for a few hours. This will go away, and soon you won’t even remember that you’re wearing earrings.
Another tip for people with very tight or new piercings, is to insert ComfyEarrings immediately following a warm shower. This helps because the heat and moisture make the tissue of the earlobe more stretchy. A warm and moist rag held to the earlobe before inserting ComfyEarrings can also do the trick.
Finally, if the warm shower or rag doesn’t work, use a medical grade water-based lubricant to ease inserting the post into your piercing.
ComfyEarrings are different than traditional earrings, but once you get used to them, we think you’ll like ComfyEarrings much better.
