Don’t drop your hearing aids
Dropping your hearing aids on a hard surface can damage the instruments. When you’re learning how to correctly place and remove your hearing aids, do it from a seated position with a towel or pillow on your lap.
- When not in use, keep your hearing aids away from heat and moisture and store them in a dry, cool place. Ask your hearing specialist about a dehumidifying box for storage. These boxes are designed to safely and effectively remove moisture that can corrode sensitive circuitry.
- Leave the battery door open to preserve battery power when not in use.
When not to wear your hearing aids
While most new hearing aids today are designed for water resistance, don’t wear your hearing aids:
- In the shower or sauna
- When using a hair dryer
- While applying hair spray or other types of spray on products. Apply hair products first, and then insert your hearing aids.
