How to clean in-the-ear hearing aids
Cleaning an in-the-ear hearing aid
Due to the coronavirus, please wear gloves when cleaning hearing aids. Instead of using a cloth to wipe the surface as shown in the video, use wet wipes of any kind, preferably antibacterial. 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 aid.
After cleaning, discard your gloves and wash your hands carefully with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds. Let your cleaned hearing aids dry for one hour.
