If you’re a headphone user, then you know how much of a pain it can be to clean your earbuds. You have to find the right solution and soak them for an extended period of time before they are properly cleaned. This can be even more difficult if you use expensive headphones that don’t come with any cleaning supplies or instructions on how to do so yourself. If this is the case, read on to discover our best tips for cleaning raycon earbuds!
Whether you use the earbuds that come with your iPhone, iPod, or another MP3 player, special care should be taken to keep them clean. Since they are used so frequently, your earbuds are bound to get dirty over time. Even when you use a simple cleaning solution like soap and water, it can be difficult to remove all of the dirt from in between the foam lining on the speakers. Fortunately, there are several tricks for keeping raycon earbuds clean without any added effort. Below I have outlined how to do so with 3 simple steps.

How to Clean Raycon Earbuds
1. Make a mixture of water and rubbing alcohol to keep your raycon earbuds clean
Raycon’s are usually made out of foam, which makes them especially susceptible to absorbing all kinds of dirt and residue from the air. Unfortunately, this is impossible to avoid unless you have headphones that are waterproof. The good news is that there are simple ways for keeping raycon earbuds clean without having to take the time to soak them every day until they dry completely.
To do so, you can combine 1 part water with 1 part isopropyl alcohol in a spray bottle. Once it’s mixed together, simply spray this solution onto your speakers before wiping it away with a cloth or cotton pad. It will help remove oil-based dirt and other particles that may be stuck on the surface of your speakers.
2. Don’t neglect the part of raycon’s that enter your ear canal
Since there are numerous areas to clean on a pair of raycon earbuds, you shouldn’t simply focus all of your attention on the outer pieces. Although this is where most dirt accumulates, it can be difficult to remove certain types of residue from this area without proper tools and instructions. Because of this, I find it much easier to use an old toothbrush along with some rubbing alcohol (instead of water).
Simply dip the head into the bottle and then brush away at all parts of your speaker to make sure they are completely clean! When you’re done cleaning them with the alcohol, use a dry cloth or cotton pad to wipe the speakers down.
3. If they’re still dirty after cleaning them as described above, soak them in hydrogen peroxide
Although most people believe that isopropyl alcohol and water are the best way for keeping raycon earbuds clean, there’s always an alternative solution if you don’t have access to either of these items. If your speakers look like they can’t be cleaned by using ordinary household products, simply put them in a container and fill it with pure 3% hydrogen peroxide!
Let your headphones sit inside the mixture until the foam pieces appear completely white again (this should take about 30 minutes). After this period of time has passed, take them out and let them air dry on a paper towel. By using either of these methods, you should be able to clean raycon earbuds successfully without having any issues in the future.
That’s it! These are some easy solutions that can help keep your raycon earbuds looking new for many years to come. However, if your earbuds are still dirty after going through all of these steps, it may be time to replace them. Check the warranty on the back or inside of your headphones before making a purchase; in some cases, you may even get lucky and receive a replacement for free. If nothing else works, consider purchasing new earbuds- they’re relatively inexpensive compared to buying brand new headphones!
