Easy to Adopt Microphone Cleaning Habits
COVID-19 aside, a clean microphone is a common courtesy that we all deserve. Maintaining the sanitation standards of a cleaned and disinfected microphone is more important than ever in prevention.

How to Clean Microphones to Rid Viruses, Germs and Dirt.
SAFE MIKING habits require practice; and practicing safe microphone is simple if you follow our 3-step sanitation process.
1. WIPE "MIKE"
WIPE "MIKE" with 70% isopropyl alcohol
Wipe the entire mic boom and cable with a 70% IPA wipe or soft cloth dampened with 70% IPA.
Concentrate on areas that had been in contact with skin or received respiratory droplets.
Wipe down the mic element with 70% IPA if it is waterproof (look for the "W" in the model number.)
Gently separate small parts of the microphone to get at all the crevices.
2. WASH "MIKE"
WASH "MIKE" with distilled water (for waterproof mics)
To remove build-up of dirt, dust and makeup, use distilled water to clean the areas that may be too small to get to with a wipe…like the open mic aperture.
To dislodge stubborn build-up, dip the mic element into a sonic bath for two minutes. Remove and shake off the excess liquid. Hang the microphone upside down and allow to AIR DRY for at least 30 minutes. NEVER USE COMPRESSED AIR.
To disinfect the mic element, dip into 70% IPA for 10 seconds. Remove and shake off excess liquid. The alcohol should evaporate within 20-30 seconds.
3. WRAP "MIKE"

There’s a final step to keep that “clean” on your mic.
Post sanitizing, store them away from other microphones by wrapping each in a sealed bag or a personalized storage case to keep them pristine for the next use or user.
