The Proper Way To Clean Your Ears

This little trick will do the job perfectly without causing any damage.

The best way to remove any foreign body or wax buildup in the ear is irrigation.

1. Put clean water into a bowl. (Using water that’s too cold or hot can stimulate the auditory nerve-which also controls your balance-and causes dizziness.) You can add some drops of household-strength hydrogen peroxide if you wish.

2. Hold a towel or another bowl under the affected ear to grab the water as it comes out.

3. With the water in the bowl, fill up a bulb syringe, a medical syringe without the needle, or a plastic bag or bottle with a pinhole in the bottom.

4. Use the arm that’s opposite the ear (for example, your right arm if you’re irrigating your left ear), reach around the back of your head, grab your ear, and pull slightly upward.

5. Squeeze the syringe, bag, or whatever you’re using so the water squirts into the ear canal with steady pressure.

6. You’re finished when the glob of wax or object comes out. Stop if the irrigation hasn’t worked within about five minutes or if you feel pain or dizziness. Try again in a few hours. By then, the wax, should be even softer.

7. When you're finished, put a couple of drops of alcohol (mixed with peroxide if you want) in your ear to help dry up excess water.
