Doctors advise using cotton swabs to clean your ears usually doesn't work, and doing this can hurt your ears.

That's why I stick to a BBQ wire brush.

You need one of these to clean your ears in style, like the Japanese do.

Been using them all my life and they work just fine. The trick is to rotate them while swabbing the sides, so you don't push the earwax even further in. And of course stop before you reach the eardrum. All common sense.

R10, I'm gonna go with "Oops I Did it Again" by Britney Spears being the most-played tune on R3's ipod. Just a hunch.

But it feels so good!
I've tried the bobby pin method but it doesn't tickle enough

I put a couple drops of hydrogen peroxide in my ear - dissolves all the wax. You can hear and feel it bubbling away.

What does Goop recommend?
|by Anonymous||reply 16||03/14/2019|
The best method is when you're in the shower, tip your head to let the hot water spray into each ear for a minute or so. This will melt/soften the earwax. Then after the shower, gently use cotton swabs to clean out the residue.

R17 I do this every time I take a shower. I take a shower every now and then.

Another bobby pin user here.

Yet another bobby pin user. We should start a club. I bought a set of stainless ear spoons from Amazon, tried it for 5 minutes and I was back on the bobby pin. Total waste of money. But seriously swab users, I learned the hard way myself. No bueno. I got the lecture from hell from this Frau nurse. It nearly came to blows.

Bobby pins over swabs?
That seems so dangerous.

Damn, I do this. For awhile, I've been thinking about seeing a doctor for what sounds like some crunching sound in my left ear that I think is wax build up, can I go to a place like the clinic at Walgreens? I don't think my regular doctor will have time for this kind of thing and he is a bit of a drive.
|by Anonymous||reply 35||03/14/2019|
Try the ear cleaning product (its name escapes me) that's just drops that sit in the ear for several minutes and are then washed out. Make sure you use very warm water to rinse and expect to do it once a week for a few weeks.
Your doctor will have something similar but OTC is cheaper.
