    i asked this question back when I first got my bellybutton pierced. I think a lot of people told me to go to my local piercing shop and have them sterilize them for me for a small price. Never did get an answer on how to do it at home.

    you cant actually sterlize anything at home(unless you have an autoclave) so your best bet is to get either some Dettol or alcohol and just clean them really well. if you handle them with some clean gloved hands you should be ok

    I usually soak mine in alcohol for a while before I put it in. Wash it off with soap.. even toss it in some boiling water to make sure that there's no bacteria on it. If it's new, you shouldn't have too much to worry about. But you should at least put it in alcohol. And clean out wherever you're putting it in, too. Some salt water, and alcohol.
