Fill a bowl with warm water and dish soap

Just like your hands need a little soap and water to get clean, so does apple watch band! Fill a bowl with warm water and a drop or two of dish soap. Stir it around to create some suds.

Put your band in the bowl and let it soak for a few minutes

If your band is made of fabric, leather, or rubber, you can soak it in a bowl of cool water with a little bit of mild soap for a few minutes. Swish it around a bit to work the soap into the band, then rinse it thoroughly under running water. You can also clean your band in the washing machine.

Use a soft-bristled brush to scrub the band

If your watch band is starting to look a bit dirty, it’s time to give it a good cleaning. Here’s how:

1. Remove your watch band from apple watch

2. Use a soft-bristled brush, such as a toothbrush, to scrub the band. Pay special attention to areas that are prone to sweat or oils from your skin.

3. Rinse the band with warm water. Avoid using soap, as it can leave residue on the band.

4. Dry the band with a soft, lint-free cloth. Microfiber cloths work well for this purpose.

5. Repeat steps 2-4 if necessary, until the band is clean.

Rinse the band with clean water

Rinse the band with clean water. Do not use soap. Wipe the band dry with a lint-free cloth.
To rinse your band, hold it under lightly running, cool, fresh water for 10 to 15 seconds.
If you get soap or detergent on your band, rinse it immediately with warm, soapy water. Then rinse it again with clean water to remove any residue.

Dry the band with a soft, lint-free cloth

If your Apple Watch band is wet, dry it off as soon as possible. Use a soft, lint-free cloth to wipe down the band — for example, a lens cloth. Avoid putting your watch band in the sun or in a hot environment, like a sauna or steam room, which could cause the material to warp.

After you’re finished

Apple Watch Bands are a very important part of the Apple Watch. They are what make the Apple Watch look good. The Apple Watch bands are also very comfortable to wear.

Put your watch back on

After you finish washing your Apple Watch band, put it back on your watch. The band should fit snugly but comfortably on your wrist. If the band is too loose, you may need to adjust it using the clasp or other fastening mechanism.

Enjoy your clean Apple Watch band!

Now that your Apple Watch band is clean, it’s time to put it back on and enjoy the fresh look and feel. Be sure to dry it off completely before putting it back on, and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing your band is clean.
