May one enter ear plugs into his ears on Shabbos?
- Sponge:Yes. There is no resemblance of a prohibition in doing so.
Some opinions forbid doing so due to the smearing prohibition as well as a possible fixing a vessel prohibition, being that he has to form the wax around his ear and in the hole for it to properly close out the noise.
Others permit doing so if it was prepared before Shabbos for the measurement of one’s ear hole, as in such a case there is very minute smearing that must be done, and such a minute amount is insignificant.
