Your new hearing aids: Being prepared for new experiences

hearing-health-careHearing aids have to cope with everything from moisture and heat to wax and hair care products. To keep them in good condition, follow these bits of advice.

To preserve battery life when not in use, open the battery compartment.

  • Always keep your devices clean and dry.
  • Make a habit of cleaning your hearing devices every day. Never use household cleaning fluids, oil or water. Follow the manufacturer’s hearing instructions.
  • Check the sound outlet of your hearing aids and remove any earwax on a daily basis.
  • Always check to make sure you have removed your hearing devices before swimming, showering or applying hairspray.
