 This invention is in the realm of personal hygiene. I personally have a tendency to get ear infections when I get water in my ears. I have for many years treated my ears with strong alcohol and prescriptions from physicians. Of course, the best prescription is to keep water out of the ears.
 With this background and incentive, I proceeded to fabricate the present invention, titled Dry Ear Set. This set deals with both ears and is pleasant to use and it does the job of keeping the the ears dry.
 In the past it is my understanding that the only way to keep the ears dry, if indeed it could be done, was the use of some kind of ear plug, which often is irritating.
 The Dry Ear Set is truly a set, in that, it protects both ears and keeps them dry while one takes a shower. One may wash his or her hair while showering and still keep the ears dry. The Dry Ear Set is light weight and friendly to wear. There is no comparable product on the market.
 The Dry Ear Set is one unit, in that the two ear covers are joined together by a ⅜ inch wide elastic tape, stretching from one ear buffer to the other, across the upper lip. This is what insures that the shower pressure will not unseat either ear cover.
 The elastic tape is attached by permanent glue on the outside of each water buffer. This placement of the elastic tape further holds the buffers to the face.
 Each component part of the Dry Ear Set, the ear caps, the water buffers and the elastic tape across the upper lip, as a unit appear new and unique. FIG.
 The ear caps are held on by a small elastic tape, just like a normal shower cap. The water buffers are constructed of two waterproof, rubberized tapes, 2½ inches long. Enveloped inside the tape are four 2½ inch long glove-rubber strips.
 This gives the buffer its large, soft character. Finally, the buffer is attached to the front edge of the ear cap by the outside rubberized tape on the buffer. For reference and orientation, an ear is shown in
