Warning! If an earplug has been pushed into the ear canal, contrary to printed directions, and initial removal has left earplug pieces in the ear canal, DO NOT try to remove any remaining earplug pieces with a tweezer, cotton swab, or other utensils. This could push earplug pieces further into the ear canal and cause significant discomfort. See an Ear, Nose and Throat Doctor; only they have the required equipment to remove earplug material from the ear. Plug pieces remaining in ear canal for a few days will cause no harm.
Warning! Children should always be supervised by an adult. Keep away from infants or small children because, while non-toxic, swallowing earplug may interfere with breathing which could result in serious injury or death. Never use for scuba diving or swimming at depths of more than 10 feet (3 meters) of water.
Make sure hands are clean and dry. Shape entire plug into a ball. Make sure area around the ear opening is clean and dry. Place plug over ear opening and gently flatten to form a seal. Avoid loose hair contacting plug; if plug becomes stuck in hair, soak affected pieces of hair with a hot cloth and the plug will loosen
DO NOT push plug into ear canal! Only cover ear opening. Earplug may be difficult to remove if pushed into ear.
