Reverse My Tinnitus Review

Depending on your location, you may be exposed to extreme temperatures during the summer months. If left in direct sunlight or extreme temperatures for a prolonged period of time, the outer plastic shells can melt. High temperatures can also cause the batteries to fail prematurely. To avoid these issues, never leave your device in direct sunlight or in a hot vehicle. When not in use, store your hearing aids in a cool, dry place.

Even with regular care, hearing aids can accumulate bacteria, fungi and various microbes. Due to an increase in body sweat and the possibility of higher wax buildup in the ears during the summer, bacteria can congregate and linger on your device. Wax can also become trapped in the tubing, which can block the transfer of sounds. Following a regular cleaning schedule can help kill off any infection-causing germs. Gently clean the micro case with an anti-microbial product or disinfectant wipe at the end of each day.

Sunscreen is often used in the summer months to protect the skin from the sun's harmful rays. While sunscreen is excellent for the skin, it can be harmful to your device. Sunscreen sprays and lotions can make their way inside, clogging vents and causing irreparable destruction. To avoid damage, apply sunscreen to your face, ears and neck before putting on your devices. Also avoid being in close contact with other people who are using these types of sprays.
