Care/Maintenance of Earplugs and Earmuffs PDF
Ensure optimal fit and protection through proper care and maintenance of your Howard Leight® earplugs and earmuffs!

Single-Use Earplugs

Inspect
Inspect prior to fitting, examine your earplugs for dirt, damage or extreme hardness - discard immediately if compromised.

Discard
For proper hygiene, discard Single-Use earplugs after use.

Hygiene
To maintain hygiene standards, Single-Use earplugs should be discarded at the end of every shift.

Multiple-Use Earplugs

Inspect
Prior to fitting, examine your earplugs for dirt, damage, deformation or extreme hardness - discard immediately if compromised.

Clean
Wash Multiple-Use earplugs with mild soap and warm water only. Pat dry with a towel and store in a case when not in use. Do not treat with any other substances, as the earplugs may degrade and compromise use.

Hygiene
With proper maintenance, Multiple-Use earplugs can last for 2-4 weeks.

Banded Earplugs

Inspect
Prior to fitting, examine your earpods for dirt, damage or extreme hardness - discard immediately if compromised.

Clean
Wash pods and bands with mild soap and warm water only. Pat dry with a towel. Do not treat with any other substances, as the earpods may degrade and compromise use.

Replace
Replace pods every 2-4 weeks to ensure optimal protection and performance.

Earmuffs

Inspect
Regularly examine earcups and ear cushions for cracks and leaks—discard if earcups are visibly damaged or compromised. Replace ear cushions if damaged.

Clean
Wash earcups and ear cushions regularly with mild soap and water. They may not be dipped into water. Do not treat with any other substances, as the ear cushions may degrade and compromise use.

Replace
As ear cushions and foam inserts can degrade over time, replace these every 6-8 months under normal wear, or every 3-4 months with heavy use or in humid/extreme climates.
