To keep your hearing aid working effectively, it’s important to clean it regularly. Make sure your hands are clean before gently wiping the hearing aid with a soft, dry cloth. Never use cleaning fluid, alcohol or water, since these can damage your hearing device.
Some common tools available to clean your hearing aid are:
- Hearing aid cleaning brush – used to clean the device’s body, faceplate or sound port.
- Ear hook, wax pick, and wire loop – removes wax and waste from holes and crevices in the hearing aid.
- MultiTool – a versatile tool which provides all the above options in 1 device. It’s usually made up of a wire loop, cleaning brush, and magnetic end.
