Your Amazon Echo is not moving too much ̵
Microfibre cloths, a fluff roller and a vacuum cleaner with smaller attachments (such as those used to clean your laptop) are all great tools to use, and we will tell you when and how to use them on which part of the speaker.
These tips apply to almost everyfrom those with fabric covers such as the to the touchscreen and the plastic and second-gen devices.
Here you can read how to completely clean up your smart speaker.
Lightly tap your Ultrasound device
If your Ultrasound speaker is super dusty, do yourself a favor and cover your nose and mouth with a medical face mask. After all, you don't want to breathe anything that comes from your device. Then lightly tap your speaker to remove any loose residue on the surface – make sure you do this over a trash can to keep dust from getting everywhere. You still have to plan to vacuum the area after your deep cleaning.
Use a toothpick to dig crumbs from confined spaces
If you have ever touched the buttons of your Echo devices after devouring crackers or anything else that produces small crumbs, then you have probably trapped pieces of food in the buttons.
Use a toothpick to scrape them out – if they are stuck in it you may need to use a sharper object, such as the edge of a business card. We do not recommend using knives or objects that could damage the speaker or injure you.
Wipe it off with a microfiber cloth
After you have removed all the dust and dirt from your Echo, grab a microfiber cloth to wipe it clean to catch everything you've missed. The cloth must be dry when cleaning the speaker to prevent damage or allow it to fill up.
When cleaning the plastic parts and the touch screen (if you have the Echo Show ($ 230 with Amazon) ), you can use a slightly damp microfiber cloth. This should pick up something sticky that might end up on your device, such as fat or sugar.
Never clean your Amazon Echo
- Never try to clean your Echo with alcohol, glass cleaner, stain remover or pretty much any liquid that is not water – and then only sparingly so that you do not get any liquid in the device.
- Do not run your Amazon Echo under the tap – it will ruin your speaker.
- Stay away from compressed air cans – the high pressure can damage the internal microphone and speaker.
