This part of the recommendations is always free of cost. With everyone gearing up for the festive season, I’m only too happy to provide the name of a brand of ear plugs that I’ve found better than most others.
dB Safe. Made of washable rubber, available at most medical stores for under Rs. 100, works better than all the inefficient, memory foam stuff doing the rounds these days. Sturdy, washable piece.
Please note, I’m not being paid by dB Safe or anyone to do this. I’m only writing this to make the reader aware that help is available just around the corner – at your nearest medical store, and it’s not an aspirin.
