Chapter 84:9
Laws of Carrying: Clothing & Jewelry

9. It is permitted to go out [into the public domain on Shabbos] with a wad [of cotton] in one's ear, to absorb the waste produced by the ears. [This leniency is granted] only when the cotton is bound and tightly inserted, so that it will not fall out (1). Similarly, one may place cotton or straw in one's sandals, provided it is inserted in a manner in which it will not fall.


(1) The Sages were concerned that if it fell out, one may end up carrying it in the public domain.
