Admit it, you’d be embarrassed to show anyone your AirPods up close. Because as much as we all love our favorite wireless earbuds, the nature of these products means that these devices are like glue traps for ear wax and other grime. Because no matter how carefully we groom ourselves and clean out our ears, the human body still creates all kinds of nasty gunk.
SPY has previously published guides on how to clean AirPods, and you have to be very careful when cleaning out these electronics. That’s because new AirPods and AirPods Pro will set you back a couple of hundred dollars, and you don’t want to accidentally damage the inner workings of these electronics in your attempt to remove ear wax.
Fortunately, we’ve got the “perfect” solution, at least, according to some very enthusiastic Amazon customers. Today, the AKIKI Airpods Cleaner Kit is discounted by 66% as part of a lightning deal, which brings the price down to just $8.45. Normally priced at $24.99, we recently named this one of the top Monday Amazon deals, and the discount is scheduled to end shortly.
About the AKIKI AirPod Cleaning Kit
If you want to see some gnarly before and after photos, then check the Amazon customer reviews for this product, which shows customers pulling out gobs of ear wax from their AirPods. We aren’t going to subject you to those images, so you’ll have to take our word for it. Customers who have used the AKIKI AirPod cleaning kit use words like “perfect” and “amazing” to describe its cleaning abilities, and this kit comes with a few unique tools you can use to gently clean out your wireless earbuds. (This cleaning kit is sold as an AirPods Cleaning Kit, but there’s no reason it can’t be used on other types of audio products and electronics.)
The kit comes with three main tools:
- A 3-in-1 cleaning pen that features a microfiber brush, a round metal cleaning nub and a sponge for cleaning the charging case
- Blue rubber cleaning pads to remove ear wax and other gunk
- Wet and dry cleaning wipes
The rubber cleaning pads can be pressed into the earbuds to gently lift away dust, dirt and wax, while the sponge is shaped for the dimensions of wireless earbud charging cases.
And, as mentioned above, the entire cleaning kit is priced at just $8.45 while this lightning deal lasts. Head to Amazon to order this kit for yourself; Prime members can also take advantage of free shipping and returns.
