Foam ear plugs

Are these alright to wash them and re-use them?
Beep boop. I'm a bot.

    Yes but only a couple of times.

    If I've run out, I get a bit of toilet paper, roll it up, dip it in water, then use that instead. When the water dries, the paper swells and works almost as well as proper ear plugs.

    i think you can use them for 3 nights. - read the label.
    though you can buy plastic ones which you can wash and reuse. (from Boots)

    I used the same earplugs for about a year when I used to work nights, I never had to wash them.

    Do I have freakishly waxless ears or are you lot all manky buggers? :p
