Resin Care & Cleaning

All accessories need upkeep, however resin accessories require its own special care. To ensure lasting use of HI Darling resin accessories, please try to adhere to the following advice.

Care

  • Do not submerge resin in water and avoid getting resin wet, especially in salt water. Resin is prone to tarnishing when exposed to moisture.
  • Avoid storing in hot/sunny areas and exposure to direct sunlight. Utilize a windshield sun shade for vehicle charms and/or remove from the vehicle in extreme heat. If exposed and resin becomes soft, immediately place it in a cool place to re-harden.
  • Glass star charm balls are made out of glass and are prone to breakage when handled roughly or dropped.
  • Avoid exposing jewelry to harsh chemicals (nail polish remover, hair spray, perfume, etc). When exposed, resin may have a chemical reaction which causes yellowing, chips, scaly or break down completely.
  • Avoid tugging or pulling screwed-on keychains and attached jump rings to resin as pieces (screws and/or jump rings) may become loose or fall off.
  • If removing or replacing charms/pom poms, utilize two needle nose pliers to separate jump rings.

Cleaning

  • Use metal polish for keychain hardware. Keep in mind that tarnishing will occur overtime.

    When cleaning resin, use a microfiber cloth (ex. eyeglass cloth) to clean/shine resin. Plastic polish can be used to shine pieces.

  • Do not use any harsh chemicals directly on resin. If spraying disinfectant, wipe with a microfiber cloth right after.
