With a wide range of TWS earbuds in its lineup, including AirPods Pro, 2nd-generation AirPods, 3rd-generation AirPods, and AirPods Max, maintaining your AirPods has never been more important.



If you're an AirPods owner or planning to snag the latest model, it's essential to know how to clean and maintain them for optimal hygiene and performance.


While Apple provides a detailed guide on this topic, we've compiled some additional tips to help you keep your AirPods pristine. Follow these steps:


Things You'll Need:

  • Soft, dry, lint-free cloth

  • A clean surface to work on

  • Dry cotton swab

  • Soft, dry, clean bristled brush

  • Rubbing alcohol

  • Scraper

  • Paper towel

Important Points to Remember:

  • Avoid getting any liquid into the openings of your AirPods.

How to Clean Your Apple AirPods:

  1. Begin by using a dry cotton swab to clean the microphone, speaker meshes, and earpiece grille.

  2. Employ the dry, clean, soft-bristled brush to remove any debris from the speaker meshes. Ensure you move the brush in one direction only.

  3. Dampen a paper towel lightly with rubbing alcohol or distilled water. Gently rub the paper towel over your AirPods, avoiding the openings.

  4. Next, take a dry paper towel and wipe the entire surface, making sure they are completely dry.


Don't rush to put your AirPods back in the charging case.


Wait until both the AirPods and the charging case are completely dry.


These straightforward steps will help keep your AirPods clean and in excellent condition. Follow them whenever you feel your AirPods need a refresh.
