    Honestly, you want to clean it often for as long as you have it. It can get infected anytime, even if healed.

    I got mine over a year and a half ago. For the first six months, you aren’t supposed to change your piercing so that is when it is most important to clean it twice a day. Once you can start changing I’d cut down. It really depends on what you are doing. Lets say you go to the pool, I would definitely clean it after that. But really you can clean it maybe once or twice a week and still be fine.

    I clean mine quickly every day to make sure it doesn’t get infected, because once it does it’s really hard to make better! My piercer gave me iodine to clean it with, and I sleep with it around the hole overnight.
