  • Always ensure that the radios are turned OFF before cleaning them.
  • Do NOT submerge the radios into any cleaning liquid, or spray the cleaner directly onto the radio. This can cause over-saturation. Liquid could soak into cracks on the device, and potentially cause serious damage.
  • An antibacterial wipe is one reliable way to properly sanitize your walkie talkie. But before using it, make sure to squeeze out all of the excess liquid in the wipe. It can still be damp to the touch, just not dripping with cleaner.   
  • Last but not least, the best method for cleaning & sanitizing your walkie talkies is to apply/spray an anti-bacterial cleaner directly to a microfiber cloth, and then use that cloth to clean your radio.
