Soak earrings for 10 mins or so, shake with a cotton bud a couple of times. This softens the gunk and helps it come off,
Tip out onto tissue.
Roll the stud using a cotton bud to clean.
Wipe the base of the backs.
Now use a floss stick to clean the inside.
The floss slips nicely into this butterfly back.
It's better to do this with 2 hands but I didn't have anyone to hold the phone!
Pop them back in for a final soak.
Clean the earring hole. Back as well!
Take the earrings out of soak and but straight back in, don't dry them first unless you are storing them.
