How to clean your hearing aids
Tips for cleaning your hearing aids
- Wear gloves when cleaning hearing aids
- If you have behind-the-ear hearing aids, clean the hearing aid surface with wet wipes that don’t contain alcohol. This is because they are coated with a hydrophobic coating that is sensitive to alcohol
- For in-the-ear hearing aids, all kinds of wet wipes can be used for cleaning the hearing aids’ surface. The cleaning guidelines are also applicable for EduMic and ConnectClip
- An alternative to wet wipes is cleaning with a mild soap solution on a hard-twisted cotton cloth. Avoid using excess water that can enter the hearing aids
- After cleaning, discard the gloves and wash your hands carefully with soap and water or disinfect with a suitable alcohol disinfectant
- Leave your cleaned hearing aids to dry for one hour

Advice before cleaning
As a general rule, clean your hearing aids and earpieces each day with a soft, dry cloth. Make sure your hands are clean and dry before handling your aids.
The microphone inlets can easily get blocked. If you are having problems with your hearing aids, check that the microphone inlets are not blocked.
Before handling a hearing aid, make sure you hold it over a soft surface to avoid damage if you drop it.
