Advantages: comfortable and effective
It is that time of year and the lambs are out on the fields around us and although lovely to look at, the bleating throughout the night can result in sleepless nights for those who live nearby. As I'm recovering from an illness at the moment I really need my sleep so asked my husband to pop into Boots and see what they had there. He arrived home with a box of Boot's Foam Ear Plugs. There are three pairs of ear plugs in the box and a little carry case which may be handy for others, possibly useful for when travelling, but I threw this away.
I haven't worn earplugs before and fiddled around with them for a while. I thought they looked way too big to place into my ears. They are skin coloured, domed at one end, very soft and spongy. I soon discovered you can manipulate them into a narrower shape by rolling them firmly with your fingers, they then slowly expand back to their original shape. So I quite easily placed them into my ears, I could feel them expand a little and then that was it I was left with a muffled silence.
They are surprisingly comfortable to wear and almost completely block out sound around you. Distant sounds (lambs bleating) I could not hear at all, closer loud sounds were muffled considerably and quiet sounds again were inaudible. For instance, my husband on one occasion came into the bedroom and started talking to me but because my back was turned to him I had no idea about it. When he shouted " Please don't ignore me!" I could hear that although still somewhat muffled. So my verdict is these little ear plugs are very effective indeed. The first night of using them I slept like a log.
These ear plugs can be washed and re-used but I think I will just start using a fresh pair when necessary. I imagine there are a wide range of ear plugs on the market and probably many that may be considered better than these, but I'm very happy with them, they are simple and effective. At £ 2.59 for 3 pairs, I also think they are a bargain. So if you are after some peace and quiet for during the day or especially the night time I recommend Boots foam ear plugs. Happy dreams!
