How To Clean And Maintain Your Watch Bands

cleaning Leather Nylon Silicone Stainless Steel water waterproof

Let's face it! Chances are that your smartwatch band is dirty!!

Okay, maybe not that dirty!

Smart Watches are great for tracking your health, fitness and checking the time. But after living on your skin 24/7 sometimes they need a decent clean.

Generally speaking, most Apple Watch bands can be cleaned using a lightly moistened cloth. However, sometimes a lightly dampened cloth is not enough to clean away the dirt, lint, and grime that collected on a worn band 

However, depending on your watch and band type, there are a few things to be aware of before you give your watch a bath. 

Clean Silicone Band Under Running Water

  • Silicone:
    Silicone Watch bands are waterproof and thus sweat proof, so can be simply bathed and washed with warm water and general hand soap. Avoid harsh cleaning agents as that may degrade the protective coating around the band.

  • Leather
    Genuine Leather Watch bands are a natural product that acts like skin, meaning it will never be completely waterproof. Water can damage a leather watch band and cause it to stain, discolour or deteriorate prematurely. Therefore we recommend wiping down leather with a dry cloth.

  • Nylon:
    Nylon Watch watch bands is a synthetic material and thus can be cleaned very easily. Simply apply general liquid cleaner and wipe down with a moistened cloth. You can also do a quick clean by placing the Nylon band under running water.

  • Stainless Steel:
    Metal Watch bands (including Milanese Loop) are made of 316L stainless steel which can be washed with warm water and hand soap. Avoid harsh cleaning agents as that may degrade the protective coating around the band, and affect the color of the band. Be sure to carefully wipe dry the band immediately after cleaning to avoid standing water - some will often trap water in crevices.

All the above can enable you to attain a completely clean watch band without going through the trouble of replacing them. Make sure that you maintain using lint-free non abrasive cloth to avoid denting or scratching any part of your band.
