Spring is a great time to get involved in environmental projects such as The Big Sweep!  It's also the perfect time to sweep away nickel allergy symptoms by cleaning out the nickel in your life!

It is rewarding to participate in The Big Sweep, as volunteers across the country work to clean our waterways.  It's good to be doing something positive for the environment plus it just feels great to be outside after a long winter!

Along with cleaning up litter and sprucing up our homes, isn't spring cleaning an excellent way to sweep nickel out of your life?  If you've been followers of this blog for any amount of time, you already know the process.  But for newcomers, here's the drill:

  • Identify nickel with Nickel Alert™, a dimethylglyoxime spot test
  • Protect yourself from nickel with Nickel Guard™, a clinically proven and award-winning barrier protection
  • Or, replace the item with one that is Certified Nickel Free™

The endless winter has had some positive effects here at NoNickel.com.  Our leather craftsman has been stuck inside, so we have lots of genuine leather belts – many with upgraded looks!  We also have some new belts that we will be introducing very soon.  One belt we would like to re-introduce is our Nickel Free Silver Square White Belt.  Maybe you grew up with the adage, “no white before Easter or after Labor Day”.  Well, those days are past and you can enjoy white accessories throughout the year.  This belt makes a terrific appearance on the golf course or having cocktails at the country club.  It also has just the right amount of trendsetter appeal to make a style statement in any environment.

 Our jewelry designer has beaten her winter blues by concentrating her efforts on spring styles!  Be sure to check out the Seasonal Earrings for some whimsical new spring designs!  The Emerging Butterflies Hypoallergenic Earrings are the epitome of Spring – lovely earrings to inspire you to rise above nickel allergy for a joyful itch-free life!

 This spring is bringing some major life events our way – as one of our own graduates from high school and prepares for college!  Others in the NoNickel family will be heading to soccer matches and swim meets.  We guess we’re just like you with busy schedules.  If being on time has been an issue in the past, especially because of your itchy wrist rash, it’s “time” to check out the Certified Nickel Safe™ watches.  We know from personal experience that spring and summer make those nickel allergy rashes so much more problematic.  These watches are guaranteed to be nickel rash free!  So don’t miss any more important moments because you’re running late!  Stay on time and rash free!

 Let’s not forget the Easter holiday that is just around the corner.  Parents continue to express concern over reports that chocolate is a food high in nickel.  While this is true, the great majority of nickel allergy sufferers should not be affected by nickel in the diet.  However, if a dermatologist or allergist is recommending a low nickel diet, then there are tasty alternatives even for the Easter basket!  Think jelly beans and Peeps- and have a wonderful Spring!

How to Measure Your Belt Size

Most of our belts are sized from the Buckle Fold to the Middle Hole. A 36” belt will have a center hole at 36” and two holes on either side of the center spaced 1” apart each. A 36” belt can be worn as small as 34” and as big as 38”.

There are several options to determine your ideal belt size.

The ideal way is to measure your waist through your belt loops. This measurement is the size of belt you should purchase (i.e. if you have a 34” measurement, order a 34” belt).

An alternative option is to measure your old belt from the  Buckle Fold to the Hole you use. If your belt measures 38” from buckle fold to the hole you use most; then order a 38” belt. This will give you a belt with 2 holes either side of the hole you use most.
