Handle with Care:
Fancy embellished ready made and custom made waist beads:
- Be mindful to remove waist beads before bathing.
- Do not handle with greasy, perfumed, or soiled hands.
- Store in individual jewelry box, cotton cloth, or tissue wrap.
Traditional African waist beads:
It is perfectly fine to bathe, shower, swim, exercise, and have sex in traditional African waist beads strung on cotton string. Once tied on securely they become an intimate extension of you, and you do everything in them. Just be mindful not to yank on them while pulling your pants down to use the bathroom.
Made to order waist beads:
The more simple made to order waist bead styles are also perfectly fine to bathe, shower, swim, exercise, and have sex in. Over time any gold or metal components on the waist beads will become less shinny. Be mindful not to yank on them while pulling your pants down to use the bathroom.
