One type of hearing aid that can benefit from continual cleanings: image via hearinglife.com.au No longer just in the realm of hearing aid dealers, I suppose, two new devices intended for hearing aid users guarantee to clean 'em out and improve the performance of your hearing aids at a more affordable cost than the professional models. These two items intended for home hearing aid cleaning are both made by Serene: the Re-New Hearing Aid Dryer and Freshener and the Re-New Deluxe Hearing Aid Vacuum.
Hearing aid tunnels pick up dust and ear wax, and ideally should be cleaned once or twice a week. In the 'old days' that would be impractical, as a thorough hearing aid cleaning would require a trip to your hearing aid dealer. But welcome to the age of do-it-yourself consumer products, and you can buy some reasonably-priced cleaners to do the task.
Here are two hearing aid cleaning gadgets that go about the job differently....
Re-New Hearing Aid Dryer and Freshener
Serene Re-New Hearing Aid Dryer and Freshener
This gadget uses two methods to clean your hearing aid: dry heat to remove moisture and condensation and a UV light to inhibit bacteria. No chemicals are needed. Comes in a compact case that's easy to travel with; a one touch operation that uses batteries or an AC adapter. One case can accommodate 2 pairs of hearing aids.

Re-New Deluxe Hearing Aid Vacuum
Serene Re-New Deluxe Hearing Aid Vacuum
Using the technology of suction, the vacuum sucks up the ear wax build-up, moisture, and condensation... the better to hear you with my dear. If your hearing aid has sound vents this tool is appropriate. It operates on 2 AA batteries that are not included, but what are included are extra suction syringes in two sizes to fit your hearing aid canal opening.
