Can I use a Ribcap with hearing aids?

How to take care of your Ribcap?

Hand Washing Method:

1. Prepare the Basin:
- Start by filling a basin or sink with lukewarm water.
- Add a mild detergent, steering clear of harsh chemicals like bleach.
2. Submerge and Agitate:
- Gently submerge your Ribcaps into the soapy water.
- Give it a gentle agitating motion to help remove dirt and stains effectively.
3. Soak and Rinse:
- Allow your Ribcaps to soak for a few minutes, letting the detergent work its magic.
- After soaking, carefully rinse your Ribcaps under cool, running water to remove all detergent residues.

Spot Cleaning Method:

1. Soapy Sponge or Cloth:
- Opt for the spot cleaning method by using a sponge or cloth soaked in soapy water.
2. Gentle Scrubbing:
- Gently scrub the soiled areas with the soapy sponge or cloth, targeting specific stains.
3. Rinse with Care:
- Rinse the cleaned areas with clean water, ensuring no soap residues remain.


1. Lay Flat and Pat Dry:
- Lay your Ribcaps flat on a clean towel.
- Gently pat them to remove excess water, being mindful of the delicate materials.
2. Air Dry Naturally:
- Allow your Ribcaps to air dry naturally. Avoid exposing them to direct sunlight or artificial heat sources.

*Important Reminder: Do Not Machine Wash:*
It's crucial to avoid machine washing or tumble drying your Ribcaps, as this could potentially damage the materials.
