Product Care

Your newest Hello Myrrh purchase deserves tender loving care.

Here's how you take care of each of your acrylic, brass and clay pieces.

ACRYLIC - acrylic is a porous material that can be wiped clean with a supersoft microfiber cloth, or something that won’t scratch. If you don’t have a microfiber cloth available, you can rinse with a pea size of mild soap and warm water, then pat dry. There are some acrylic safe cleaners on the market - the one I recommend and personally use is NOVUS. Do not use alcohol or denatured solutions, as it will cause your acrylic to crack over time.

Acrylic Keychain Care Tips: 

Tip 1: Regularly Wipe Your Acrylic Keychains

Dirt, dust, and fingerprints can accumulate on your acrylic keychains over time, making them look dull and dirty. To keep them looking their best, make a habit of wiping them down regularly. Use a soft, lint-free cloth or microfiber cloth to gently remove any dirt or smudges from the surface. Avoid using paper towels or rough cloths, as they can scratch the surface of the acrylic.

Tip 2: Use Mild Soap and Water

For more thorough cleaning, use a mild soap and water solution to clean your acrylic keychains. Mix a few drops of dish soap with warm water and gently clean the keychain with a soft cloth. Be sure to avoid using any harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the acrylic material. After cleaning, rinse the keychain with clean water and pat it dry with a soft cloth.

Tip 3: Remove Scratches with Acrylic Polish

Over time, your acrylic keychain may develop scratches or scuffs. You can remove minor scratches by using a specialized acrylic polish or cleaner. Apply a small amount of the polish to a soft cloth and gently buff the scratched area in a circular motion until the scratch is less visible. Wipe away any excess polish with a clean cloth.

Tip 4: Protect Your Keychain from Direct Sunlight

Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause the colors of your acrylic keychain to fade over time. To maintain the vibrancy of your keychain, avoid leaving it in direct sunlight for extended periods. Store your keychain in a shaded area when not in use, or consider using a UV-resistant clear coat spray to protect the surface from UV damage.

Tip 5: Keep Your Keychain Away from Sharp Objects

To prevent scratches and other damage, be mindful of where you store your acrylic keychain. Keep it away from sharp objects, such as keys or other metal items, that could potentially scratch or chip the acrylic. Consider using a small pouch or protective case for storage if necessary.

Tip 6: Store Your Keychain in a Cool, Dry Place

Acrylic can be sensitive to extreme temperatures and humidity. To keep your custom keychain in the best condition, store it in a cool, dry place when not in use. Avoid exposing your keychain to high temperatures or excessive moisture, as this can cause the acrylic to warp or crack.


Acrylic keychains are stylish and durable accessories that can last a long time with proper care and maintenance. By following these simple tips, you can keep your custom keychains looking their best and enjoy them for years to come. And don’t forget, pairing your keychain with custom washi tape can add a personal touch to your belongings and create a unique, eye-catching look.

MASKED ACRYLIC - Custom blanks and other acrylic tools will arrive with paper masking on it to protect them during shipment. Be sure to peel the paper off of both sides of your item. From there follow the care instructions given above on how to care for your acrylic pieces. 

BRASS - raw brass is an incredible medium that patinas over time by itself. If you're not interested in the natural tarnishing that this raw metal has, you can do a few different things: Soak the brass piece in white distilled vinegar for 10 minutes and dry with a paper or microfiber towel - check out my brass cleaning tutorial here. Raw lemon juice (cut it open, and stick a Q-Tip in there!) and lightly buff in a circular motion to take off tarnish, Q-Tip in EVOO and lightly buff in a circular motion to restore shine, or BRASSO (make sure to wear gloves).

POLYMER CLAY - polymer clay is a flexible medium that is made of plastic. While your clay piece may be flexible, I do not recommend testing the limits of your clay by overexerting or flexing it. Makeup stains can be cleaned off of non-painted or sealed clay with Alcohol and a Q-Tip, but it is best to use a soft rag to gently buff your pieces. It is highly recommended that you keep your jewelry in a light colored pouch when storing or traveling with them to prevent color transfer from darker items

Important reminders for jewelry:

  • Please store your earrings out of direct sunlight
  • Minimize exposure to excessive heat, water and perfumes
  • While pieces are strong, please avoid bending or dropping as breakages can still occur
  • Hooks are handmade and may dull overtime, a gentle buff with a cotton cloth will restore their shine
  • Clay components can be wiped with a damp cloth and then buffed with a microfibre cloth to return luster 
  • Store in a lined jewelry drawer or in a jewelry cabinet/display
  • Snap hoops: If dropped, pins on snap hoops may shift causing the hoop to loos its "snap". Gently shift the pin upward or downward to realign it with the hole and get back the "snap". 


Important reminders for shape cutters and tools:

  • Do not leave in direct sunlight or expose to temperatures over 60 degrees (not oven or dishwasher safe!) unless noted in description
  • Wash with warm soapy water. Wipe between uses to avoid color transfer.
  • While durable, do not stress beyond intended use or apply horizontal pressure.
  • Not suitable for children due to small parts.
