    dangling around.....

    "Please remove all rings, bracelets, & any accessories dangling around before starting the massage?"

    I need to have the above stuff removed because I don't want those thing hitting on the customers' face or body while doing the massage. Is the above sentence OK?

    Re: dangling around.....

    Don't use "around" with it.

    Please remove all rings and bracelets and any dangling jewelry. (That would let the person keep on a short necklace or small earrings, which is the point, right?)
