Hearing Aid Care – How Clean are Your Hearing Aids?

When was the last time you sanitized your hearing aids? Your hearing aids collect moisture and debris daily, and if you don’t clean them regularly, they become a breeding ground for bacteria. With the Widex PerfectDry Lux Dryer, you can sanitize and dry your hearing aids in only 45 minutes! It is compatible with all Widex hearing aids and is the perfect accessory to clean your hearing aid.

So, how often should you be cleaning your hearing aids?

Hearing professionals recommend cleaning your hearing aids every night, and the Widex PerfectDry Lux Dryer makes it so easy. Every evening before bed, simply put your hearing aids in the PerfectDry Lux Dryer and let the machine do all the work!

Additional Tips for Keeping Your Hearing Aids Clean

  • Use the right tools – A wax pick and brush are essential cleaning tools for at-home hearing aid maintenance. If ear wax is left long enough on your hearing aid, it can damage the receiver. Make sure to use the wax pick and brush daily.

  • Routine is key – Having a good daily routine for when you remove your hearing aids is important. Remove your hearing aids before you shower, wash your face, and wait until after you apply hair care products like hair spray or gel before you put your hearing aids in for the day. If water, soap, or hair care products get in your hearing aids they can damage them.

  • Clean them daily – When you clean your hearing aids daily before bedtime, your hearing aids will not only last you longer but you will find the work better too. It is important to not use alcohol or other chemicals on your hearing aids, otherwise it could affect the performance and damage the delicate components.
