After you’ve been diagnosed with a hearing loss and you’ve been fitted with a hearing aid, your hearing professional will provide you with instruction on how to care for your hearing aid. It’s vital to follow their recommendations on the care and maintenance to reduce the need to have your hearing aid repaired often. This will ensure longevity to the lives of your hearing aids.
Dry & Store Container
Storing your hearing aid in a safe, dry place overnight will help to prevent it malfunctioning due to moisture and debris. A Dry & Store container is a dehumidifying storage box that provides a safe, inexpensive nighttime storage option for your hearing aids when you aren’t using it. Always keep you Dry & Store Container in a convenient location such as your nightstand or bathroom, as a reminder to put it away at night or when not in use.
It’s important to clean the battery contacts of your hearing aids and remove any visible wax or debris before putting them inside the dryer. Leave the battery doors open of the hearing aids open while they are stored inside the dryer, to allow air to circulate and permit moisture trapped inside, to escape. This preserves the life of the battery.
There are many types of containers; some operate on electricity, and some do not, they use a desiccant or gel to absorb moisture. Discuss these options with your hearing professional to see which type is recommended for your style of hearing aids. They can be purchased from your hearing provider or from online retailers.
