How do you revive foam ear plugs. I'm tired of paying for new ones again and again. Anyway I can reuse them?


Mainly I use them for sleeping.  I like them a lot. But budget wise it gets heavy in the pockets if I use them everyday.

    Wash in Dawn dish-washing detergent and hot water and let air dry before reusing to avoid ear infections.  It would be better if you bought silicone rubber ear plugs since they are easier to clean.

    See if this would help: Place them in a small jar, and fill the jar completely with rubbing alcohol so that they don't float. Close the jar, and keep it over night. Next day, put the plugs on paper, and let them dry.

    You can’t reuse them. You need to order them.

    Leave them in a pocket and throw the pants in the wash.

    Place in a mesh bag and put them in the dishwasher.
