Custom Protect Ear wanted to send you a reminder that your dB Blockers are washable, here is how.
How to Clean your Custom dB Blocker Hearing Protection
dB Blockers hearing protectors are washable!
Your protectors can be washed in warm water and mild soap. You may wish to lubricate them again after washing (a couple of times) to regain the comfort for insertion.
Take care to avoid getting water in the vent if possible, but should this occur, gently blow through to clear water out.
Believe it or not – the longer you avoid washing, the better the natural lubrication from the oils in your skin. Also, your natural cerumen (ear wax) acts as an antibiotic and although many of us were taught that when ear wax is present, it is a sign of not cleaning our ears. Nothing could be further from the truth. It is your body’s natural defence. Cerumen or earwax is healthy in normal amounts and serves as a self-cleaning agent with protective, lubricating, and antibacterial properties.
However, given the current concern of potential illness transference, we wanted to educate on how to wash and sanitize your dB Blockers. After washing your ear pieces, you may wish to further sanitize with alcohol.
Once washing/sanitizing is complete, you may wish to re-lubricate your dB Blockers using mineral oil or Vaseline.
Below we have included step by step instructions as found in your dB Blocker pouch.
