How do I care for my hearing aids?

Q. How do I care for my hearing aids?
A. Examine your hearing aids daily. Clean them if necessary with the tools you were given. Don’t use any sharp objects or toothpicks in the openings. Wipe them off with a soft cloth or tissue if slippery or wet. Don’t use hairspray while wearing hearing aids.

Spray your hair before you put your hearing aids on, let it dry and then insert your hearing aids. Don’t wear your hearing aids while exercising; your perspiration is harmful to the electronic components. If you want to use hand lotion put your hearing aids in first, then use the lotion.

You don’t want to clog up or drop the hearing aids.Open the battery door when not in use. Not only does this turn off the instrument, but also allows harmful moisture to evaporate.
