    No, don’t ever use peroxide to clean a ear piercing it might sound right but don’t because it can irritate your ear. So what you should use instead to clean your ear piercing would be dial soap it works well to kill germs, or natural mild soap works fine too, just don’t use peroxide, irritation might occur. =]

    Sea salt soaks. Everything else can irritate the piercing or can remove the GOOD bacteria that is used to help heal your piercing. Sea salt soaks are recommended for pretty much any piercing.

    Alcohol and peroxide are too harsh on the body and actually stop the healing process and cause an infection. the best thing to use is H2ocean spray or Bactine, sea salt is amazing at cleaning piercings.
