Earplugs: You're Probably Inserting Them Wrong

Do you engage in any really loud summer activities, like chainsawing, monster truck rallies, or vacuuming a library? If you do, Consumer Reports Health wants you to know that not only should you be wearing earplugs, you’re probably inserting them wrong.

They’ve made a handy instructional video to show you how to get actual hearing protection from cheap foam earplugs. (The video is the source of the “vacuuming a library” remark, too.)
