Rinse the earrings well using clean water. Make sure you clear the alcohol from the surface of the earrings. Then place them on a dry towel and allow them to dry. You can also pat the earrings on the towel, which will make it quick for the earrings to get dry. Your earrings are now clean and can be worn again.
