Rycote Product Cleaning Guidelines for COVID-19

The purpose of this article is to provide guidance on properly cleaning your Rycote equipment to mitigate the chance of your equipment being contaminated with COVID-19. By following the below guidelines, the risk of being infected by the virus or transmitting the virus via contact with your gear is reduced; however, it is not a guarantee that you will avoid the transfer or contraction of the virus.

Cleaning Guidelines for COVID-19

These guidelines are applicable to all Rycote products, including but not limited to: Modular Windshields & Suspensions, Cyclone, Softies, InVision shock-mounts suspensions, Mic Flags.


    • For metal or plastic surfaces: Wipe down the exterior of your product with alcohol-based sanitizing wipes. We recommend choosing products that are labelled as effective for killing 99.9% of bacteria and viruses and are also bleach-free. You may also spray with a disinfectant solution that contains over 70% alcohol, and dry with a towel.
    • For synthetic fur product (for example Windjammers, Classic Softies) we recommend regular hand washing with either warm or cold water using a mild detergent. Then allow the fur to air dry (do not tumble dry), and then brush out to avoid the fur becoming matted. Where washing is not possible, you can also spray with a disinfectant solution that contains over 70% alcohol, allow to dry naturally.

We recommend cleaning the surfaces of your equipment regularly, especially if it has been loaned to, or handled by, another person (loans to colleagues, events, service, bag check, etc.).
