How to Clean Your Radio Accessories

With the COVID-19 pandemic, regular cleaning and sanitization are necessary for radio accessories to ensure the safety and health of your team members.

We have outlined some useful tips on how to clean your radio accessories.

For All Impact Radio Accessories

Radio accessories can easily be cleaned using 70%+ alcohol wipes (or rubbing alcohol) and common store-bought bleach-free disinfectant wipes such as Clorox and Lysol wipes kill COVID-19 and other viruses and bacteria. The wipes and rubbing alcohol are safe to use on the plastic surfaces of our products and all cables and wires.

  • For rubbing alcohol: Apply a small amount of alcohol on a lint-free cloth so that it’s damp but not soaking and rub all over the surface. It will dry quickly.
  • For 70%+ alcohol wipes and bleach-free disinfectant wipes: These are usually more wet, so we advise that you dry the surface with a lint-free cloth after disinfecting.
  • DO NOT SUBMERGE any radio accessory with electronic parts or connectors in cleaning solution. 

For Waterproof Accessories

Our waterproof products can be submerged in a mild soap solution and water. However, they must be securely fastened to the radio to avoid getting the connector pins wet.

If they are not connected to the radio, we encourage you to use the methods indicated above (rubbing alcohol, alcohol wipe, disinfectant wipes) or you can still use a mild soap solution and water by submerging a lint-free cloth in the soap and water solution, wringing in out before wiping down the surface to avoid getting the exposed connector pins wet, and drying it with a lint-free cloth afterwards.

Use Disposable Products

As an alternative to cleaning, our Silver Series earpieces and speaker mic are so cost-effective they’re essentially disposable.
