How to clean JBL Clip 4

To clean the outside of the JBL Clip 4, we recommend using highly concentrated isopropyl alcohol with a cotton swab or microfiber cleaning cloth. This solution is great for electronic devices because it will clean oil, dirt and other containment. Not to mention that it will also evaporate quickly and won’t leave behind any residue, making it safe for electronics.

If you don’t have any isopropyl alcohol, then you can pick up the MG Chemicals – 824-1L 99.9% Isopropyl Alcohol Electronics Cleaner on Amazon with this link. (#CommissionsEarned).

When cleaning with isopropyl alcohol, make sure the speaker is not turned on until the solution is completely dry.

If your JBL Clip 4 have been in pool water or saltwater, you need rinse the speaker as the chemicals in the pool water and salt from the saltwater will cause damage to the waterproof seal and outer casing over time if not cleaned properly.

To clean the Clip 4 from pool and/or saltwater, you can simply rinse the speaker using regular tap water. The speaker can withstand being underwater at up to 1 meter deep for 30 minutes.

Make sure that the Clip 4 is turned off before rinsing. You should also make sure that the speaker is completely dried out before turning it back on again.
