I know this is kind of the same as the last Alex and Ani instructable I did, but I'm going away for spring break and need to make as many instructables as I can. So sorry if this is boring, but I got some new bracelets so hey , that should cheer you up :). NOTE: * steps mean to do them on all types of Alex and Ani bangles. Also, all of my bracelets are shown here. I would really appreciate it if you told me your favorite one! ;)

Step 1: Caring for Beaded Bangles

Here's how to care for beaded Alex and Ani bracelets. *1.) always store your bracelets on something round while you aren't wearing them. This will help them keep a circular shape. 2.) make sure that when you clean your bracelets, you take a soft toothbrush and gently scrub in between the beads to release dust and dirt particles. *3.) always take your bracelets off before showering, swimming, using abrasive cleaners, and applying beauty products. *4.) never store bangles when wet. *5.) clean bangles regularly to keep your bracelets looking their best.

Step 2: Caring for Bangles With Gemstones.

Thanks for the tips. I have 3 at the moment. Got 2 from my Fiancé......My Other Half and What's For You Will Not Pass You. And my latest one is my birthstone.
I LOVE your paw print one. I have a Shih Tzu whom I adore with all my heart but unfortunately we cannot get it here in Ireland as Alex and Ani will not ship out of the USA ??
Is it just simply washing up liquid that you can use ??
Thanks again
