Peace for the ears
Against the noise this classic with the ingenious name is a great and useful help. The name is a combination of the German word Ohr (ear) and the Latin word pax (peace).
Maximilian Negwer (born in 1872) invented 1907 in Berlin the Ohropax. Cotton wool is soaked with a mixture of melted wax. After the cooling down it is cut into little pieces and these are rolled to balls. To use the Ohropax you knead these balls for a while and modell them. After that you put them into your ears to close them.
