  • Doctors say you should never put anything in your ear that is smaller than your elbow. You do not have to clean your kids' ears or your own. Ears are self-cleaning. Really.Just ask any Doctor.

  • I clean out ears about once a month. I do my own everyday. I know I am medically not supposed to, but I do anyway.
