As with most electronic devices, it’s best to keep your hearing aids as dry as possible. Thankfully, most modern hearing aids are moisture-resistant. This means that sweating during a heavy workout or taking a walk through a light rain are, more than likely, not issues that will require any sort of intervention on your part. However, accidents happen. It’s easier than you may imagine to forget you’re wearing your hearing aids and jump into the shower. What do you do then? Amplifon breaks down how exactly to dry out your hearing aids when your plans go awry.
First things first: don’t panic. It’s quite possible that this situation is entirely salvageable. You’re not the first person to inadvertently stroll through your grandchildren’s water balloon fight.
Once you’re satisfied that your hearing aids have dried out completely, return the batteries and take them for a test drive. It’s highly likely that they’ll be working just like they did before. If you do notice any changes, however, don’t hesitate to book an appointment with your hearing specialist. They’ll be able to tell you if your hearing aids need any repairs. Hopefully, that won’t be the case and this guide on how to dry out your hearing aids is all you’ll need to keep your important investment safe.
