Sensitive Ear Lobes

Fab Tip: Clean Out (and Sell Out) Your Jewels

Here's a little-known fact about me: my ear lobes are super sensitive, and wearing anything other than studs tend to irritate them. I was recently cleaning out my jewelry drawer when I realized I have over 20 cute pairs of earrings I haven't worn in ages. A light bulb went off in my head — why not sell them to close friends and co-workers? After all, they're of no use to me, just sitting there. With my new entrepreneurial spirit, I went to work, sanitizing each piece with alcohol, then sticking them in small zip-lock baggies. I was on to something . . .

I'm a moron; sorry - I didn't read the whole thing because I thought you were talking about sanitizing. Cool to know...

I prefer to know how selling the earrings worked - were you successful? I would feel so awkward and wierd asking my friends to give me money, even if it is in exchange for things they want...

Here is a suggestion. I had sensitive earlobes for years but I overcame it by making sure I sanitized the posts everytime I was to wear other than gold and used neosporin also.
