I was reading the blogs and would like to clear some misunderstanding about using an ultrasonic cleaner. Ultrasonic cleaner uses ultrasound to generate tiny air bubbles which explodes on the surface of the item submerged in the water. That action along with high frequency vibrations shake off debris and clean an item. Its best advantages are: 1. It reaches inside crevices where brushes can not reach. 2. It cleans delicate items which is better not to be brushed upon. 3. It’s convenient and saves effort. Pour some water in, put the item in, push a button and it’ll be done in a couple of minutes while one is brushing teeth.
For hearing aids cleaning, the most common application is to clean the earmolds. As earmolds are made of plastic which you can wash, then you can clean it with an ultrasonic cleaner. You can clean with tap water, or if really needed, add small amount of solution. It’ll not damage earmolds as long as there is no pre-existing damages since the cleaning power is limited to the tiny air bubbles and very small magnitude of vibrations.
If needed, you may purchase ultrasonic cleaners online at www.isonicinc.com. Prices should be much better. Some models are the same as the ones used by some hearing aid companies while other models can be better choices. Ultrasonic denture/hearing aid cleaners could server dual purposes and they are small in size. Larger models can clean eyewear as an additional capability. You don’t need Professional grade models which are typically for commercial use.
