How to Use
Even though most of us are very diligent about keeping our hands clean by washing more frequently and using hand-sanitizers, this does little to help reduce the level of bacteria on jewelry. In fact, the water and soap actually builds up as a bio-film on the jewelry, creating a breeding ground for continued growth and spread of bacteria and viruses.

Using Your AquaSonic Wave®
First, slide the locking mechanism to the left to unlock the cover and open it completely so that the top lies flat. (See fig. 1) As the cover opens fully you will notice that the two center arms lift slightly to allow you to place rings and earrings.
Each arm has the capacity to hold three rings separated by the dividers located on top of the arm. (See fig. 2A) This allows room to hold up to 6 rings at the same time. Hoop earrings may also be placed in the dividers; you will also see 6 holes designated for stud earrings. (See fig. 2B)
For rings just place each ring between the dividers, for hoop earrings simply lock the clasp on the hoop and place one earring in between each divider. (See fig. 3A) For studs, remove the earring back, place it through the hole and secure the earring from behind. For best cleaning results, attach the stud facing down. (See fig. 3B).
The bottom area is open to hold bracelets, chains or any items too large it fit on the arms. Use the two wide posts as anchors to help keep items separated. You can stack 3 or 4 items in this area as shown. (See fig. 4) Once loaded, rotate the cover back over the base and slide the lock to the right until you hear an audible click sound. This will indicate the lock is secure.
