    I've had these for over 3 month now and I really like them but their major inconvenience is that You have to keep cleaning then from earwax and the case gets the most dirty I think. Maybe it's because I keep them(in the case) in my pockets or because I leave them the cupholder in my car when I drive...

    I want to know how you guys clean them because near the hing of the case it gets really tight and difficult to clean? Also what do you use to clean then? Water? Special cleaning product? Because I'm just using regular antibacterial wipes....and it doesn't scrum enough I must say

    Or if yours don't get so dirty, how do you keep them so clean?

    Ps. I'm still learning sorry for the spelling

    I use a microfiber cloth to clean them after each use, which works well. Otherwise, a cue tip with rubbing alcohol (Minimal amount) works, which the alcohol will evaporate.

    I second the microfiber cloth. I usually have one around at the office and at home, so generally after I am done using them, I wipe the case and AirPods off with the cloth. Granted, I have only owned them for a month, but the case and AirPods are still relatively clean.

    I got a case to go around my Airpods case in order to keep out all dust and what not out at all times. The actual Airpods case is not airtight so it lets that dust in like crazy from pockets and what not. I am a little crazy when it comes to my apple products not getting scratched so I have had my Airpods for almost 3 months and not a scratch on the case and not a dust mite in sight. Hope this helps, honestly you can find anything that is super small that they won't be beaten up. I found this small case at TJ Maxx for $6 and its big enough to carry a microfiber cloth as well, or when at work to hold the actual pod if I need to put it down for a sec. They also make waterproof cases for it as well.
