Can I clean my on-ear headphones that have soaked in smelly liquid?
This weekend I took my daughter to the park and picked up some sandwiches. My husband likes the french dip, so I bought one for him and (because I’m an idiot and I was juggling holding a toddler and her three stuffed animals) threw the take out bag into a tote bag where my bose on-ear headphones happened to be also. Unfortunately, some of the horribly smelly dipping sauce spilled onto the headphones. They still work, but if I wear them, my hair and face smells like a French dip sandwich and I’m understandably grumpy.
They make replacement covers for the ear cushions, but not the headband. Any thoughts as to how I can clean them? Can I take them apart? I don’t really want to break an expensive pair of headphones, but I’m desperate. We have a stupid white noise generator at work that makes me sleepy, and I usually wear these to drown it out, but not without smelling like an absurdly stinky sandwich I now hate.
