Amazon is selling tiny shower caps for your ears

Stepping out of the shower only to realise you have conditioner in the crevice of your ear is one of the worst feelings in the world. Why didn't you double check them? Why didn't you rinse better? But don't beat yourself up. Amazon has the solution: shower caps for your ears.

Designed to protect your ears from discolouration during the hair-dying process, these plastic covers serve more than one purpose. The Amazon page description says that the product: "Protects ear from water from showering, shampooing, hair coloring and chemical treatment."

Made from clear, waterproof plastic, these ear caps instantly repel water or dye, leaving your ears the cleanest they've ever been. You never again have to worry whether or not you have gunk on the side of your head.

These nifty ear shower caps are 8.5 cm with an elastic rim. They're adjustable, and fit anyone with infant-sized ears to full-grown adult ones. The Amazon page advertises the product as "one size fits most", and includes an image of a child modelling the bath accessory.

A package of 100 pieces costs £8.79, so you can wear them for your everyday bathing needs.

But if you're not a huge fan of the clear make, Amazon also sells a similar opaque model. The alternate hard-plastic shield is designed to fit the shape of the ear.

These protectants will do the job, whether you're trying to reduce the noise from a blow dryer, or are protecting your ears from heated curling irons and hair straighteners. This product is sold for £8.77, and can be cleaned and reused.

No matter which ear protector you chose, and no matter what you use it for, one thing's for sure: you'll never leave the bathroom partially dirty again.
