Go to a jewelery store . It's your best and safest bet .

EDIT : If I'm not mistaken , I believe they use really hot water or some sort of solvent .

they only cost me 40$ (amazon FTW)

and yes they are real diamonds and 14 k white gold. so i rather not spend more on cleaning then they are worth

i just left them in some hot water and used a tooth brush they are waaaay more sparkly than before...

did you recently get yours pierced?

i was able to take mine out after about 6 months overnight, they were completely healed.
shitty part is that i kept such a small stud in my ears so now when i go to wear bigger studs the stud is like a size or two bigger so theres some discomfort when wearing the larger ones..

nope had it for quite a while. 5-6 years? But with all that dead skin build up and when you go for runs/shower you get that stuff there moist good environment for shit to grow so I clean it every week.

I've got a 1/2 ct stud in white gold. Usually will use toothpaste and scrub it with a toothbrush. Then rinse with hydrogen peroxide to sanitize. Makes it sparkle.
