How to Clean Your Polymer Clay Earrings
Polymer clay is resilient, but a little care goes a long way. Here's what you need to know:

Remember, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Follow these practices:
Pre-Activity Removal: Always take off your jewelry before activities like washing hands, swimming, applying lotion, sports, or household chores.
Post-Product Application: Put on your jewelry after applying perfume, body cream, makeup, or hairspray to avoid any potential damage.
Avoid Extremes: Shield your jewelry from direct sunlight, sharp impacts, harsh cleaning chemicals, and extreme temperatures.
Gentle Soapy Water: Dip a soft cloth in mild soapy water, then gently rub the beads.
- Rinse and Dry: Wipe the surface again with a damp, soap-free cloth to remove any residue. Gently dry with a soft cloth.

Smart Storage Solutions
Airtight Containers: Tarnish is the enemy of precious metals. Store your jewelry in airtight containers to shield them from humidity.
Avoid the Bathroom: Bathrooms might be convenient, but they're not the best place for jewelry. Opt for ziplock bags instead.
Separate and Conquer: Store items individually to prevent scratching. Leave link and chain bracelets unclasped or unhooked to avoid accidental damage.
Combat Humidity: Place a piece of chalk, an activated charcoal packet, or a silica gel package in your jewelry box to reduce moisture.
