1. Clean the earbud tips
Pop off any silicone, foam, or cover earphone tips or earbud coverings. In a small basin, combine one part dish soap with five parts lukewarm water to create a solution. The tips should soak for at least 30 minutes after being added. To give them a better clean after soaking, use a cotton swab soaked in the soapy solution.
After thoroughly rinsing the tips, let them air dry for many hours or overnight. Wait until they are totally dry before putting them back on the earphones.
2. Clean the earbud's mesh cover.
For the mesh screen of the earbuds, carefully brush any visible earwax out with a fresh or used, clean, dry toothbrush. Hold the earbud so that the mesh is pointing down, preventing any debris from getting farther into the earpiece.

Finally, clean the earbud's exterior rubber surfaces by dipping a microfiber cloth in isopropyl alcohol. The surface will be cleaned and disinfected as a result. Lint-free microfiber won't leave fibers in the mesh. A prepared alcohol wipe is an additional option. If your earphones have cables, clean them with an alcohol-soaked microfiber cloth or alcohol wipe.
