Disinfect your hands and earlobes
Wash your hands thoroughly before starting. Wet a cotton ball or pad with rubbing alcohol, and gently wipe around the front and back of the earrings.
Twist the earring
Slowly twist the earring a few times while it's still in your ear. This helps loosen any skin that may have begun to attach to the stem.
Remove the backing
Pull the backing straight back to remove it. If it doesn't come off right away, rotate the backing a few times, and then try again.
