  • When I was 13 I was walking out of the bathroom using a Q-tip in my ear and my little sister jumped out and scared me. I jumped and jammed the Q-tip deep into my ear. My ear started bleeding and the Dr said I broke my ear drum. It was pretty painful.

  • I quit using q tips when I found they were pushing the wax back into my ear and clogging it. Wax is healthy. Only clean the outsides.
