In the summer there's nothing my kids love more than to play in the water. Whether they are swimming or squirting each other with the water hose it seems they are always getting wet. Unfortunately my children also suffer from horrible ear problems which tend to put a damper on some of their fun.

When I found out about ClearEars I knew that it was a product I needed to try. ClearEars is not like traditional earplugs they are not used while you swim, instead you put them into your ears after swimming to draw out any water that may be trapped. ClearEars are made of an FDA approved polymer that is soft and comfortable. They are super easy to use and work to remove trapped water in minutes! They are also eco-friendly as they can be cut up after use and sprinkled into flower beds to help the soil maintain moisture!

The first opportunity I had to try out ClearEars was on my son after a day of water play with his cousins. Gaige (my son) is notorious for getting water trapped in his ears which almost always leads to an ear infection. After about an hour of playing in his kiddie pool last weekend IU noticed that Gaige was sticking his fingers in his ears, a tell-tale sign that something' is not right. I remembered that I hadn't had a chance to use the clear ears yet so I ran and grabbed them and scooped Gaige up to see how well they worked. First I have to say that my son hates to have his ears messed with (not a hard thing to image given as many ear infections as he has had) but I rolled the ClearEars earplugs between my fingers and effortlessly placed them into his ears, I'm actually not even sure he knew they were there. Of course I let him run around and play (the whole time he left the ear plugs in) and after about 10 minutes I removed the earplugs. The ClearEars seemed to work as he didn't pull or pick at his ears after I removed the earplugs...they probably saved him from having a nasty ear infection. The one thing I noticed about the product that I wish was different was the fact that each set of ClearEars earplugs are designed to be used only once and with 5 pair priced at $6.99 they could get a little pricey. Overall I loved ClearEars and would definitely purchase them! ClearEars can be purchased online at Cirrus Health Care and at all major retailers.

I just had to add that we spent today at our local amusement park Kings Island and of course the kids had to visit Boomerang Bay (the theme park's water park). I used ClearEars on all of the kids after swimming with great results!

  20. I would like to try the earHurts because my daughter at times has fluid in the ear, but they are not infected... we end up going to the dr because she is in pain, but no meds because no infection, this would at least help to relieve that ear pain...

  59. Ear Hurts takes away the hurt.

    The all natural ingredients are blended into an exclusive pain soothing formula that is embedded in a soft silicone earplug. When placed in the ear, the soothing ingredients are slowly released and are transdermally absorbed into the ear to help soothe pain.

    Soothes ear pain caused by ear infections.
