I just got my earlobe pierced. I was using Claire's After Care lotion and cotton buds to try and clean it but I feel like I can't do it effectively. Would it be fine if I poured some of this solution into a small spray bottle and simply sprayed it on the piercing when cleaning it?

I got my ears pierced ten years ago and did the exact same that you're doing with the cotton bud and solution. I've never had a problem and I even used that method when I got my helix pierced two years ago!

You can bathe your ear in a small container, like an egg cup, for 1-2 minutes if you'd prefer - this is the advice my piercer gives. I personally use a mixture of boiled water and salt on a cotton bud, which I've found works for both my lobe piercings and helix piercings. I used the Claires solution for my first lobe piercings which worked alright (This was 10+ years ago, I'm not sure if it's changed) but I got all my other piercings done in tattoo shops who just recomended salt water which I prefer.

Yes, you can spray it. I've had 20+ piercings and healed the majority using sea salt solution in a spray bottle. A piercer recommended this when I had my lip pierced and I've sworn by it ever since.

I've used sea salt in warm water, saline spray and I prefer tea tree oil in warm water, though it does dry your skin out after a while.
