- Black cleaning tool with the cleaning wire
- Tubing (removed from the hearing aid body)
- A tissue or microfiber cloth
Cleaning the Tubing
Start by threading the wire through the triangular base of the tubing. Push it all the way through the tubing and out of the tip. Clean out any debris or ear wax from the tubing, removing any blockages that could stop you from hearing.
Once the wire pops out of the tip, make sure to wipe off the end of the cleaning wire with a tissue or a microfiber cloth to remove the debris. Finally, pull the cleaning back out through the tubing.
We want to repeat this process—running the cleaning wire through the tubing, wiping off the end of the wire, then pulling it back through—a few more times to make sure the tubing is completely clear.
Important note: One thing to keep in mind is that any ear wax, debris or blockage is going to be closest to the tip. It’s important to start the wire at the base of the tubing first so the wire pushes the ear wax out of the tip. If we start at the tip, then we will be pushing these blockages further into the tubing, which we don’t want to do. We want to push the debris out as fast as possible. So, remember to push the cleaning wire through the base of the tubing first. And remember to wipe off the end of the cleaning wire before pulling it back through the tubing.
