When you unpacked your feathers, I recomend that you hold them over steam from a tea kettle or hand held steamer. Hold them as close to the steam as you can, about 1 inch away. This will straighten them out and fluff up the fibers after being flattened during shipping.
The steam realigns the protiens in the feathers. It only takes a few minutes and you will be amazed with the results. After steaming the feathers watch them straighten right out!
How to maintain, clean and keep feathers beautiful
Do not wear while applying any hair products or perfumes. Do not apply anything on the feathers. This could damage them.
To fluff feathers Use either an eyelash brush or a designated small tooth brush. Lightly brush downward only, going with the flow of the feathers.
How to care for Brass Adornments
Brass does oxidize over time with hand oils and certain environment exposures. I recommend using brasso to clean & brighten up the brass. Apply with a qtip-a light layer over brass. After 30 seconds use qtip to rub in cleaner over brass to remove oxidation. Do not apply to any feathers. Remove remaining cleaner with alcohol with a cloth. A Buffing cloth after adds the finishing touch for that extra shine.
The hoop part that hangs from earlob, has a flexible back. It is best to squeeze the back part in, towards the front after hanging in the ear. This closes the ear post! The secret to not loosing them on the dance floor!
