When I tried using water before dfkt gave me this method, they fell apart.
This is what I use. Works well.

Maybe someone could try using a sonic jewelry cleaner or one of those UV light wands.

cool thx for the tips !!Unfortunately my first attempt i tried cleaning them with Methyl Spirts ! And then used my fingers to clean it! Epic Fail ! Dont Do it !! It looked like some acid burnt a portion of it :s

I followed your advice and washed them in warm soapy water.

Restored them back to new !

I tried using all 3 options Hot boiling water , Warm Water and cold water straight from the tap.And Mixed them all wish dishwasher soap ! Hot water + soap did a incredibly great job at cleaning.I was able to locate some dust that came off it !

But imo Warm water works is best ! Since u can just use the hot water from the tap.Cold water worked as well but i didnt feel like it removed scum as well as hot water did !

Moral of my post DONT clean Comply Tips with Methyl Spirts or Solvents !

Just use normal dishwasher soap and youll restore them back to good condition !

I clean mine with the wife's alcohol free facial wipes for removing makeup. Gets the wax off in no time and as far as I can tell hasn't affected the foam at all.

Well, I just tried this and it worked very well, although mine weren't extremely dirty.

I also use the alcohol face/glasses wipes. It works well for me.

Or, you could follow the guidance of Comply.
