Hi all,


Glad to hear your Sleepbuds are serving you well so far! In regard to cleaning, we have specific instructions as shown in the product user guide:



Remove the ear tips from your Sleepbuds and wash them with a mild detergent and water. NOTE: Make sure you thoroughly rinse and dry the ear tips before reattaching them to your Sleepbuds.


Sleepbuds nozzles

Clean only with a dry, soft cotton swab or equivalent. Never insert any cleaning tool into the nozzle.


Case charging pins and Sleepbuds charging contacts

Regularly pat dry with a dry soft cotton swab or equivalent. CAUTION: Do NOT clean the charging pins using a wiping motion, as this can bend the charging pins or force moisture into gaps in the case.
