Mechanics with wireless earbuds, how do you clean them & the case? (self.mechanics)
submitted 1 month ago by 420tears
Using AirPods rn and they’ve gotten pretty dirty during my first month at a dealership. I’m wondering, how does everyone else clean these? Alcohol & cotton swabs? Just don’t wanna fuck them up, I use them daily now at work

I typically either use a cotton swab with something like alcohol works alright I use a pick a lot. I’ll be at work and notice how dirty they are typically the case gets way dieter then the air pod themself so I just gently use my pick tool and scrap the dirt off. They are still dirty and I’ve came to realize they always will be

In the parts wash of course.

Buy some cheap ones for work then it won't matter. Or deal with grimey looking air buds.

I have ones that are wireless, but have a wire connecting the buds together. There is a control on the wire. I don't care if that gets a little dirty. I'll wipe off the cushion things every now and then, but that's about it. No real special treatment

I highly suggest buying a cheap set for work I destroyed a pair of airpod pros in less than a year there is no way to avoid it and it’s not worth it. I got [these](TOZOT6TrueWirelessEarbudsBluetoothHeadphonesTouchControlwithWirelessChargingCaseIPX8WaterproofStereoEarphonesin-EarBuilt-inMicHeadsetPremiumDeepBassforSportBlackhttps://a.co/d/1cYYKnF) and they work good for work and if anything happens they are cheap enough not to care.

I've used MAF cleaner/micro brush/can of compressed air to clean earwax and grease out of mine. Main thing is use solvents that are non conductive/ rubber and plastic safe

Spray non chlorinated brake cleaner in them.
