How to clean Earbuds

When was the last time that you cleaned your earbuds? Probably never? Maybe you never even thought about having to clean them. Go ahead and take a peak at what they look like, we will wait.


Dirtier then you thought? No worries, we got you covered with a few cleaning options.

How to clean your earbuds- Option 1

Use sticky tack! remember the white or blue stuff from school? This is my favorite method for cleaning earbuds. It gets in all the nooks and crevasses of the mesh inside the buds. Just take a small piece and gently press it into the mesh, repeat until all of the gunk is removed.

Option 2

Dip a q-tip in a small amount of rubbing alcohol and wipe inside of the ear bud. Don’t saturate the q-tip because you dont want too much liquid getting inside the bud itself. Add more alcohol to a small pad or tissue and wipe down the entire length of the cord as well. This will disinfect and make everything look as clean a new.

Option 3

Use a disinfecting wipe and wipe down the entire earbud, inside and out. This provide the same disinfecting effect as the option above.
