How to Clean Your Earbuds Properly?

We all know very well how dirty headphones become if you use them and never clean them. It is especially true for plug-in models – here, dirt even affects the sound. Yes, and such headphones look not to say that it is pleasant.

For cleaning, we need a small container with warm water, soap (or a gentle dishwashing detergent), a soft cloth, a toothbrush, and a small towel (a thick kitchen one will do). Please note that you should add minimal detergent or soap to the water.

First, slightly dampen a cloth with detergent and water. We do not need extra moisture – after all, we are dealing with electronics. Then remove the pads from the Earbuds and wipe them gently (but thoroughly).

Most likely, hard-to-reach places will remain untouched. Now, start using the brush for cleaning. Again, you do not need to get it wet, but you should not wield the brush too hard – you can damage the overlay material. To be sure, wipe the attachments one more time with a rag. Well, that is it – spread the linings on the towel.

As for the cups themselves, they should also be wiped clean. Again, use a slightly damp cloth (almost dry); do not let moisture penetrate the structure!

It is the easiest and fastest way to clean your headphones. By the way, it will not be superfluous to check if there are any recommendations for care on the website of the manufacturer of your headphones. Some companies recommend using hydrogen peroxide in the cleaning process; for example, the Bose website has instructions.

All of the above applies to most in-ear / in-ear headphones. Although, in many ways, the cleaning process depends on the specific model. Some manufacturers produce headphones without removable earpieces. For example, Apple makes the popular Ear Pods today that do not come with overlays. Of course, you need a different approach here, and its important to pay special attention to this headphone model.

To clean the Ear Pods, we need a toothbrush, a toothpick, isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol), and a soft cloth.

Use a toothpick to run all over the grill screens of both ear cups, but be careful not to push the dirt inward. By the way, never wet a toothpick or a toothbrush. Then we recommend blowing out all grills, but carefully.

The next step is alcohol. Everything is straightforward here. Just slightly, dampen your finger (or a lint-free cloth) in alcohol and wipe the case and headphone wires with it, do not let the alcohol get into the bowls.

Finally, a few words about overhead and full-size headphones. Such models, as a rule, are equipped with foam and other similar soft ear pads that should not get wet. However, the fact is that such nozzles can lose their shape after exposure to moisture. You can clean the foam pads with a sticky clothes roller or vacuum cleaner with a crevice tool. If it is not easy to help the ear pads, and you need wet cleaning, do not completely immerse the pads in water – wipe them with a damp cloth.
