Looking after your hearing aids
Your hearing aids should be able to cope with everything from the damp to earwax. Follow the guidelines here to keep them in the best condition.
Clean your hearing aids daily and remove any earwax. Never use cleaning fluids or water. Simply use a dry cloth and a brush. Your hearing specialist will be able to tell you about tools and equipment for drying and cleaning.
Good advice for getting started
As a rule, your hearing aids and earplugs should be cleaned daily with a soft dry cloth. Make sure that your hands are clean and dry before touching your hearing aids. Never use water, cleaning fluids, solvents or alcohol, as these products can damage your hearing aids.
The microphone openings are easily blocked, so if you have a problem with your hearing aids, always check to see if the microphone openings are blocked.
When you handle your hearing aid, hold it above a soft surface so it doesn’t break if you drop it.
