A fun and educational video showing how to test for nickel:
Nickel Alert™ Refill - 2-Pack - Nickel Alert is a Dmg spot test kit used to detect the presence of nickel in metal objects, and is the first part of the Nickel Solution™ Detect & Protect system by Athena Allergy. This system (sold separately) is indispensable to anyone with nickel allergies who still wants to wear their jewelry or use items containing nickel without fear of irritation. The unique, 2-part system "detects" the presence of nickel in a metal object using Nickel Alert™, and then "protects" the wearer from nickel contact after applying a coat of Nickel Guard™ (sold separately) to that item. Each Nickel Alert Refill in this 2-Pack comes in a 7.2 ml Bottle.

Directions for Use:
Please read the directions and warnings that come with Nickel Alert™ or those that came with your Nickel Solution™ Detect & Protect Kit before using this product.
Two Step Process:
Nickel Guard eventually wears off, so test regularly with Nickel Alert and when you see "pink" on the swab, you will know it is time to reapply Nickel Guard. Nickel Guard is safe and easy to use and will not harm even your most valuable items. And, unlike clear nail polish, Nickel Guard does not contain Toluene, Formaldehyde or Dibutyl Phthalate, which can cause secondary contact dermatitis.
A Word of Caution: This product is flammable and contains strong fumes. Keep out of reach of children. Do not apply to skin. Do not take internally. Avoid contact with eyes. For use on metal objects only! Use only as directed by the manufacturer.
