How to remove plastic earring backs?
It’s not much fun when those base metal and plastic earring backs get stuck. If the earrings are on your ear, and you have been wearing them for weeks or months, they may have rusted on. In this case, you can try to rub some Vaseline on the post and not and try to get it to turn and slide off. If this does not, consider spraying some WD40 on the earring post and back and try to slowly work the plastic earring backs off. If this does not work, you might want to consider getting medical help.

To help keep earring back from falling off, try squeezing the 2 loops together lightly with a plier, in order to restore the friction that holds them on.

Another possibility is that the hold that the post passes through is too large, in which you need an earring back that is made for a smaller guage earring post.
