Here's how to safely clean your AirPods:

For AirPods and AirPods Pro:

  1. Use a soft, lint-free cloth: Wipe down the entire AirPod with a slightly damp cloth (just water) and then dry thoroughly with another soft, dry cloth. Be especially careful not to get any moisture near the openings.

  2. Clean the mesh: For tougher grime or earwax buildup in the speaker mesh, you can use a dry cotton swab to gently wipe away the debris. Be very careful not to push anything through the mesh. If you have AirPods Pro, you can also use a soft-bristled brush for stubborn dirt.

For AirPods Pro only:

  1. Clean the ear tips: You can remove the silicone ear tips and rinse them with water. Just make sure you don't use soap or any other cleaning agents. Dry the ear tips completely with a soft, lint-free cloth before reattaching them.

For the Charging Case:

  1. Use a soft, lint-free cloth: For the outside of the case, a dry cloth usually works fine. If there's some stuck-on grime, you can dampen the cloth slightly with water.

Important things to avoid:

  • Don't submerge your AirPods or the charging case in any liquids.
  • Don't use any harsh chemicals or cleaning agents on your AirPods.
  • Don't use sharp objects to clean the mesh or any other part of your AirPods.

By following these simple steps, you can keep your AirPods clean and free of dirt and debris. Here's an Apple support article that you might find useful too https://support.apple.com/en-us/102672
