Cleaning Voice Equipment

How to Safely Clean  Your Honeywell Vocollect Voice Equipment

Now, more than ever, it’s important to keep yourself and all of your frequently-touched equipment clean and sanitary. As your trusted partner, we’d like to share some of our best practices as we all navigate the COVID19 environment together.

As we’ve often said over the years, cleaning your voice equipment with 70% isopropyl alcohol or alcohol-based wipes is a great way to keep it sanitized. We realize, however, that procuring these cleaning agents at this time may be next to impossible. In the event that you are unable to obtain 70% alcohol-based products, you will be happy to know that good old-fashioned soap and water is a terrific substitute for sanitizing your equipment! We created an instructional video to show you how to clean your voice equipment using dish soap, water, and paper towels.

NOTE: If you’ve ever wondered why soap and water work so well against the COVID19 Virus, Palli Thordarson, a Professor at the School of Chemistry UNSW, recently shared the following insight: (For more information, follow Palli Thordarson on Twitter.

  • The soap dissolves the fat membrane and the virus falls apart like a house of cards and “dies”, or rather, we should say it becomes inactive as viruses aren’t really alive. Viruses can be active outside the body for hours, even days. Disinfectants, or liquids, wipes, gels and creams containing alcohol (and soap) have a similar effect but are not really quite as good as normal soap. Apart from the alcohol and soap, the “antibacterial agents” in these products don’t affect the virus structure much at all. Consequently, many antibacterial products are basically just an expensive version of soap in terms of how they act on viruses. Soap is the best but alcohol wipes are good when soap is not practical or handy.
  • The World Health Organization created a short video showing the proper way to wash hands in order to get the best results.

Stay clean … stay safe …and please let us know if we can help you in any way!
