PSA: how to clean your AirPods
Somewhere in the past I came accross this and now I wanted to try it out. The metal grills in the Airpods (or Earpods) will get full of gunk and earwax. There is no easy way to clean this, and using liquids is not safe.
You can clean it with this type of sticky adhesive:
(I used Patafix by Bison).
You can mold it into little balls and press then firmly into the grill. The adhesive is sticky enough to remove all the gunk, but not too sticky to get stuck.
I tried it out first on old Earpods since I was affraid on using it. Here is the result:
(Left pod uncleaned, right pod cleaned with patafix).
I used it on my Airpods too and they are clean again! I can also confirm it can remove lint from the AirPods’ case hinge!
Hopefully some of you find this usefull
