Apple AirPods and AirPods Pro are some of the best real wireless earbuds in town, partly because of how well they work with the iPhone – there's nothing like them. In addition to being completely wireless, AirPods have a host of advanced features, from the integrated Siri voice assistant to the active noise cancellation available on AirPods Pro. They have helped revolutionize how people listen to music and made it easier than ever to enjoy your favorite music or podcast while on the go.
Unfortunately, however, AirPods also have a pearly white design, which means that dirt and other dirt can be a major disadvantage to their aesthetic integrity. After all, nobody wants to be the person with dirty AirPods, especially considering the high price tag!
However, the proper method of cleaning AirPods is not the same as cleaning other headphones or headphones. You should not use soaps, shampoos or plenty of liquid when cleaning them, as they may damage the buds. Instead, follow these simple steps:
How to clean your AirPods or AirPods Pro
Step 1: Damp something a soft, lint-free cloth.
Step 2: Wipe the body clean while avoiding the speaker network.
Step 3: Use a dry cotton swab to clean the microphone and speaker grids.
Step 4: Let them dry before placing them in your or charging case.
How to clean the ear tips of your AirPods Pro
Step 1: If any water has accumulated in the ear bud, press the AirPod onto a soft, dry, lint-free cloth with the ear tip opening facing down.
Step 2: Remove the earbuds from each AirPod and rinse each tip with water. Again, do not use soap or other household cleaners.
Step 3: Wipe each ear stopper with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth. Wait for the tips to dry completely before attaching them back to each AirPod.
Step 4: Click the earbuds on each AirPod. The ear tips are oval, so be sure to adjust them properly before clicking on them again.
Before you know it, AirPods will look good as new. The most important thing to remember is to use as little liquid as possible. Now go ahead with the cleanest AirPods on the block.
