How to

Clean your hearing aid

Keeping your hearing aids clean

A hearing aid consists of several parts, most of which should be cleaned and maintained regularly. For instructions on how to clean a hearing aid, please select your hearing aid style:

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. Do not use water, cleaning fluids, solvents or alcohol, as these could damage your hearing 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
