Clean AirPods/EarPods Earwax


I read about people sucking on the mesh part to get the wax out but that isn’t very effective/sanitary…wondering if there are any better ways to clean AirPods/EarPods when earwax inevitably collects on them?

  • UPDATE: Before using Putty, I recommend using a Q-Tip/tissue to clean the surface (while being careful not to push anything into the mesh).

    Wall/Mounting Putty works wonders!

    Any brand is fine (likely available in your local drugstore), here’s an example:

    Scotch Removable Mounting Putty

    Push your AirPods/EarPods (1 at a time) into the putty as much as you can, and then pull them out and you’ll see a bunch of dirt left over on the putty! So satisfying and they’re good as new.
