How to Clean a Healed Septum Piercing: A Simple Guide

Hey there, septum piercing enthusiasts! So you’ve got your septum piercing healed up, and now you’re wondering, “How do I keep this thing sparkling clean?” Don't fret; I've got your back. Here’s my easy-peasy guide on how to clean a healed septum piercing. Dive in!

1. Setting the Stage: Know Your Piercing's Age

Before we get started, let's make one thing crystal clear. My septum piercing has been with me for years, and it’s fully healed. If you’re rocking a fresh piercing, you might want to stick to your piercer’s instructions for cleaning and caring. Okay, now that we've got that out of the way, let’s dive into the deep clean for those healed piercings!

2. Removing the Jewelry: Do it Right

So, the first step? Take that jewelry out! You'll want to clean both the jewelry and the piercing separately. Here's a pro tip: To avoid that mini-heart attack of dropping your jewelry down the sink, use a bowl with gentle soap and warm water. Or, if you’re brave, just put a towel over the drain. Either way, be sure to clean off any residue or crusties.

Wash 'Em Good

It's simple. Add a bit of gentle soap (not too much now) to a bowl of warm water. Gently swish your jewelry around, ensuring you're giving it a good clean. No one likes crusties, right?

3. Cleaning the Piercing Itself

Alright, now to the main event. I swear by a gentle soap, like the Naked brand soap. By the way, we’ve got this gem on our site, among other awesome options. Remember, before getting up close and personal with your piercing, make sure your hands are squeaky clean. Trust me; it makes all the difference. Avoid touching other things so you keep the germs away.

Soap it Up!

Take just a wee bit of your chosen soap on your fingertips and gently clean the area. Once you’re done, pat the area dry, and voilà!
