  • I do it once a week or so. It is one thing that really bothers me. I believe that I have been told thought that you really are not supposed to clean them, just wipe around the outside. I could be wrong but for some reason that is in my head.

  • don't use q tips, it can create ear infections. I learned this the hard way with my own ears because I'm sort of "gotta have clean ears" type of person, lol and used qtips constantly.

    I use a wash cloth and lightly rub them, then once a month I use the special candles things. I havne't used them on my DD she is too young, so I just use the wash cloth.
