The AirPods has been a great success for Apple for several different reasons. Among them stands out the perfect integration of these with all Apple devices as soon as you open the case. And if we add that this case has more battery to continue enjoying them, it makes them even better. However, along with a great product comes a great use, which means accumulation of dirt, and in the case of AirPods, cerumen.
How do we clean the AirPods?
Counting that they are white, that is, any type of dirt, is increased exponentially, cleaning the cylindrical body of the AirPods is a simple task. It is not so easy, of course, to clean the cavities of the headphones, with the millimeter grids.
If we do not clean the AirPods grids regularly, it is likely that a lot of dirt has accumulated. To clean them we recommend using cotton swabs and a microfiber cloth or cloth. We make a first pass with this cloth to remove most of the dirt. Then we proceed to use the cotton swab for those areas harder to reach. In case there are still traces of wax in the cavities, we recommend using a toothpick. Its end is sharper so that wax accumulation can be better removed. Under no circumstances we recommend using liquids such as water, alcohol or other cleaning products since they could cause damage to the surface.
Regarding the AirPods case, Apple says the following : “Clean the AirPods and the cargo box regularly with a soft, lint-free cloth. Do not let moisture enter through any opening or use aerosols, solvents or abrasive substances. “
We must take special care with the connections at the bottom of the case, where we introduce the AirPods, as they could be easily damaged. And even more if they come in contact with any liquid.
If you are not sure when cleaning the headphones, go to your local Apple Store or an official distributor so they can help you.
