Microphome introduces disinfectant mic-cleaning foam
Microphome, a Florida-based start-up company, has introduced its namesake product, Microphome, a safe and easy-to-use disinfectant/deodorizer for microphones. Available in individual 50mL bottles and as a complete cleaning kit, the fast-drying foam takes only two minutes to use and kills 99.9 percent of all germs, according to the company. Microphome is designed protect the health and safety of microphones in studios, recording studios, rehearsal halls and venues.
Microphome’s uses an alcohol-free formula and foam aeration system. The antimicrobial cleaning fluid is pumped in a measured dose of gently aerated foam that clings to the external microphone surface, never touching the internal electronics, and dissipates within two minutes. Each bottle contains enough for more than 100 applications.
Microphome also offers a complete mic cleaning kit, which can help renew neglected microphones. The kit includes a bottle of Microphome, a double-ended cleaning brush, soft nylon scouring pad and microfiber cleaning cloth in a black vinyl zipper pouch.
