Budget-Friendly Backup: Silicone Jewelry

Silicone is one of the most affordable materials for body jewelry! It doesn't last as long as 14 Karat Gold or Titanium. But maybe you wont want it to last that long! As Silicone is a type of plastic and not metal, wearing it in freshly healed piercings may cause some complications. Fresh piercings require a sturdy piece in them to hold the piercing placement. As new piercings are quite like open wounds. They also require a non bacteria holding metal! Its suggested to use silicone and bio-flex in only fully healed piercings.

Shine On: How to Properly Clean Your Silicone Body Jewelry

Silicone should be taken care of with some TLC, just like other jewelry pieces. Wash them often with a gentle anti bacterial soap and water. Although no micro fiber cloth is needed, wiping them down prolongs the smooth texture of your silicone jewelry or plugs. Try avoiding alcohol and hydrogen peroxide when cleaning your flexible body jewelry. Harsh chemicals tend to cause erosion and can even cause micro-pockets in plastics. This can lead to bacteria buildup or even smelly jewelry or piercings. Yikes! No matter the material or metal, to keep your jewelry looking nice and new, always give them an occasional cleaning with a light dab of moisturizing oil!
