Everyone who owns AirPods should clean them of debris and wax to prevent ear infections, damage to the earbuds, and even sound problems. But because AirPods are delicate and intricate, washing them improperly might cause irreversible damage.

How to Clean Airpods without Damage

Although it requires fewer resources, cleaning the speaker mesh is a little more laborious:

  • A dry cotton swab (s)
  • Toothbrush with soft bristles

You’ll need a tool with a satisfactory end and a soft, lint-free cleaning cloth (preferably a microfiber cloth) to clean AirPods. A toothpick, dental floss stick, bobby pin, needle, or any other common household item might be used as a sharp instrument. A cotton swab can be used in its place if you don’t want to use anything sharp.

First, use a lint-free cloth that has been slightly moistened with water to wipe the outside of the earphones. After that, dry the earbuds with another dry, lint-free cloth, being cautious not to get any liquid within any holes.

This is how to clean AirPods:

  • To remove any loose dirt, carefully wipe the area surrounding the speaker hole with a dry cotton swab.
  • Using the soft toothbrush, give the speaker some brushing. Any tiny dirt particles lodged in the mesh or hole will be released. After that, you can get rid of them using the cotton swab.
  • If the dirt is terrible, you can also try carefully sucking it out of the speaker mesh while covering the opening with a tissue to prevent dirt inhalation.
  • Repeat this process until the cotton swab is clean again. To prevent jabbing at the speaker, mesh with the plastic in the middle and replace the swab if the cotton gets too thin.

How to Remove Wax from It?

If earwax gets lodged in the speaker hole of your earbuds, use a dry cotton swab or a fine-edged instrument to remove it. Remove the earwax carefully, particularly the areas surrounding the speaker’s edges. Avoid piercing the speaker or harming yourself while using a sharp item.

You will also need to clean the silicone tips covering each earbud’s speakers if you have AirPods Pro.

Take off the silicone covers from your AirPods Pro earphones, then quickly wash them in water. Add no soap or other household cleansers at all. Make sure they are scorched before using a gentle, lint-free towel to wipe them dry. Reattach them to the AirPods after they have dried.

Pull firmly from the base of the tip, where it connects to the earbud, to remove the tips from an AirPod Pro. Reattach it by lining up the tip with the oval-shaped connections on the earbud speakers and pressing it firmly in. After lining up the connectors, it should easily click into place.

Cleaning the AirPods case

Take out the AirPods and wipe the outside of the case with a dry, lint-free cloth to clean the AirPods case.

You can use a little alcohol to moisten the cloth for more stubborn spots but dry the areas afterward. Ensure no moisture is in the charging port or the AirPod holds within the case. Use a soft bristle brush to clean the charging port of debris.

Use a soft toothbrush or bristle brush to clean the case’s interior; the bristles will help remove dirt from all of the crevices and nooks.

Maintaining your AirPods regularly will keep them looking beautiful and sounding fantastic. Recall to gently clean your AirPods using cotton swabs, dry brushes, and soft, lint-free cloths.
