    Sorry, I'm sure there's a more technical term than 'ear-cushions'.

    Anyhow, I have some headphones with quite a lot of cushion on them and they've picked up some foundation from the side of my face and go a bit grubby as a result.

    Can anyone recommend a way to clean them, or what products to use? It might be quite difficult to remove the makeup, and also I'm concerned about the risk of damaging the material with cleaning products.

    Thanks

    Actually cushion or pad is about as technical a term as it gets :ahee:

    Are the cushions removable?

    Nice, I know the lingo

    They're not removable, and quite integral to the whole thing. They're Bose Quiet Comfort, the kind that sit on the ear, not cup the ear.

    I would have a check of the manual if you have it, I could have sworn the QC3s have detachable cushions :holmes: The best thing to do would just be to get a clean cloth, soak it in soapy water and wring it out as much as possible so it's just damp. Wipe gently, avoiding applying too much pressure, in a circular motion. Hopefully that should do the job :yy:
