A vacation

Maybe you like the idea of traveling, but not the reality. Or maybe you travel a lot for work.

Other Questions

How do you clean swimming ear plugs?

Using foam earplugs, the best thing to do is to fill a bowl with cleaning solution – hydrogen peroxide is recommended by many audiologists. To clean, just add the ear plugs into the cleaning solution for a few minutes, then wipe them.

How often should you clean ear plugs?

Ideally, every time that you want to use the earplugs. After we have used them, there will be ear dirt on them. Cleaning using the above method works well.

Can earplugs cause permanent tinnitus?

This is not the case. It may sound like having tinnitus after using the earplugs, as there will be blockages in the ear from swimming. This is not permanent and will soon disappear
