Organic plugs, including wooden plugs, can be gorgeous additions to your body! But without proper aftercare your beautiful wooden plugs could turn out dry, brittle and cracked. No one wants that! Let your wooden plugs last forever and keep them looking brand new by following the three simple steps to wooden plug aftercare.
Avoid water at all costs.
Whether it’s an ocean, lake, jucuzi, pool, bath or even a shower always remember to take your wooden plugs or body jewelry out first!
If you are forgetful, it might be best to stick to water proof jewelry for everyday wear and opt to wear your wooden plugs and other wooden body jewelry on special events only.
The reason to avoid water is because wood acts like a sponge and will absorb it. This causes the plug to expand. Eventually, when the plug is no longer wet, this water will evaporate. When this water evaporates it will lead to your wooden plug cracking and drying out.
