CARING FOR YOUR NEW BARRETTE
Because of the blends of oils and waxes I use before any application of the resin finish your new barrette is water proof and will continue to be waterproof as long as this finish is maintained. My barrettes can withstand occasional showers or hand wash, but I would advise no extended submersion in water. The natural finish on my barrettes will not peel off or scrape like a lacquer or shellac finish would do. Cleaning is simple, just apply some wood oil or olive oil to the barrette , wipe the barrette until its dry with a cotton cloth then use a quality bees wax to buff and shin, the more this process is carried out the more and more beautiful your barrette will become over the years.
TRY TO AVOID…
Like I say an occasional shower or hand wash is fine but as with any horn barrette or even a silver or gold barrette for that matter it is advisable to avoid exposure to antibacterial wipes or soaps, sprays, cleaners, perfumes or harsh substances such as alcohol isopropyl, sunscreen, hair products or mosquito repellent as it may lead to staining or damage to the surface of your barrette. Your new barrette is robust so if your barrette did happen to come into contact with any of the above, don’t panic simply rinse the barrette with some cold water and dry off before applying a little oil. As long as a new barrette is cared for just like any other loved jewelry item you may own it will last forever.
