Why You Should Wash Your New Nipple Covers

Before wearing your nude reusable nipple covers, it's important to learn how to care for them. To ensure they last a long time, you must wash and store them in their original containers. Washing them properly not only ensures long use but removes any dust and other particles that may come in contact with your skin.

Our orders are packed with care and clean hands. However, products come in contact with many hands before they even reach us. Therefore, if you want them to stick well, you should wash and dry them first.

Washing your pasties after wearing them prevents the buildup of skin, sweat, and other impurities that may remain on them. The goal is to get 40 or more wears out of them.

Cleaning Steps:

1. Open the case and peel the plastic backing off the pasties. The plastic is optional to keep because you can use them again.

2. Switch on the water, ensuring it's at a warm temperature. Avoid using hot water on silicone.

3. Use SLS-free soap. (SLS = Sodium lauryl sulfate) It's gentle on your skin and on your reusable nipple covers. If you don't have SLS-free soap, try using baby body wash or your facial cleanser.

4. Shake off excess water and leave on a flat surface to air dry. Avoid using towels or paper towels because they may leave fibers on the sticky side of the nipple covers and keep them from sticking.

Determine your skin tone in nipple covers!

Choose a color that closely matches the color of your breasts, not the color of your areolas. If your breasts and areolas are the same color, choose that color. If not, choose a color lighter than your areolas for a sexy, smooth, and seamless look.
