Please ensure that you’ve properly disinfected or sterilized all jewelry before inserting into a piercing. Improper disinfection leads to the majority of 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 while it will not negatively affect the 316L steel can cause discoloration of the gems and 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 the feel for the threading and to work out any hitches in the thread itself. If the jewelry feels ‘stuck’ a small pair of needlenose pliers can be used to get a little extra grip – we use duct tape on the pliers to protect our jewelry. They may be put together fairly tight from the factory.
Before handling your jewelry 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 back in place behind your ear and twist the front and post to screw the back on.
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.
If you’re having a hard time inserting ComfyEarrings, the problem is probably the blunt end. Instead of stabbing through your ear like traditional earrings, they might take a bit of wiggling to get them in the first few times.
But, once they’re in, you can leave them for as long as you want. You can even sleep in them.
If it’s been a while since you’ve worn earrings, you might need to use a regular earring 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 immeadiatly following a warm shower. This may help because the heat and moisture make the tissue of the earlobe much more stretchy. A warm and moist rag held to the earlobe before inserting ComfyEarrings can also do the trick.
Another option if the warm shower or rag doesn’t work is to 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.
