Here's some handy tips to help keep them looking fresssshh!
💜 Don’t get em wet! Although our glue used is the strongest on the market. Wearing them in the shower or to swim could give your earrings/accessories a shorter life span. Also with hand painted or printed designs, exposure to water, perfumes, essential oils etc. could remove some of the pretty artwork.
💙 Try not to drop them. Most of our earrings/accessories are made from acrylic / resin and dangle earrings are connected with jump rings. Dropping them could cause breakage so it’s a really good idea to take them off over a softer surface like a carpeted area.
💚 Try to keep them stored out of direct sunlight as this too will give them a longer life and keep the colours nice and bright! The better care you take when storing your earrings and accessories the better they will continue to look. Storing on a earring board is the best way. And you can grab all types of earring boards from many places. We sell some pretty awesome ones too! No fuss to display, simply leave your earring backs on and push them into the board. Earring boards also work well as storage for our pins! You can store the pins on the board by removing the backs. They also have artwork on them (designed by me - Peta) So they look really cool on your wall too!
💛 To clean your earrings use a Hey Polly cleaning cloth, a cloth used for glasses (microfiber) or a damp cloth. That alone will remove make up, moisturiser and such. Just a gentle wipe, don’t rub too much.

🧡 To clean use a Hey Polly cleaning cloth, a cloth used for glasses will also work. Something smooth and microfiber. Please don't wet any of these items.
❤️ Each garment is different and requires different care. You will find care instructions in each product description as well as on the label.
Tips re soft plastics;
When receiving your order cut the very end of your satchel so you can use it for another package you send in future in it and tape it up.
Re use our cardboard box to help post something else out with better protection or to store bits and pieces in and use like a storage box.
Zip bags or any bags our garments come in you can re use to store things like shoes, scrunchies or any item like that to keep them dust free.
For thin plastics you don't want to reuse the best way to recycle them (so they can be made into something else) is by taking them to a Redcycle bin often found at supermarkets.
Our bubble wrap is made from recycled plastic and can be reused again also.
