How to clean the electrolarynx and the precautions to take
While cleaning the device, you should make sure that you blow the dust off. Dust stuck on your electrolarynx can affect its effectiveness.
Never clean the device under running water or submerge in the water.
The electrolarynx must be cleaned regularly to ensure it looks and works perfectly for a long time because it will be free from germs or infections. It is advisable to clean your electrolarynx with a clean and wet disinfected cloth or microfiber. Always remove the battery (for Digital and Comfort models), clean the dirty part, and let it dry up before inserting it.
It is crucial to clean thoroughly the head of the device that makes contact with your neck.
You can use an old toothbrush to clean threads on the device where parts screw together.
To clean such parts, use isopropyl alcohol and not rubbing alcohol.
Rubbing alcohol leaves a residue on the cleaned surface. Be careful as you pick cleaning solutions because some can adversely affect the performance of your electrolarynx.
Always protect the top of your electrolarynx from dust or rain.
Cleaning the head prevents dust condensation from forming. If the head is compromised, the speech will not be clear. You must be aware of how to maintain your electrolarynx device.
