you arent supposed to remove the jewelry to clean it anyway! i have had mine done a year and have never taken it out. clean the area on ur face with antibacterial soap and water 2x a day. Use alcohol-free mouthwash 2x a day to clean the inside. do not play with it otherwise. you can also place a cottonball soaked in a sea salt solution (4 tsp sea salt per 8oz of water mixed in a waterbottle works best for me) and use it 2-3 times a day. do not play with it unless you are cleaning it. do not remove the jewelry. do not use anything else on it.
use a cotton bud and some salt solution and clean gently around the area inside the lip and out, you should do this twice a day to make sure its clean
