  • You know something, I've always wondered what the hell that was, and when I found out........... let's just say, that there is NO F*CKING WAY that anyone is putting an open flame anywhere near me!


    And that's all I have to say about that!

  • ive done them before ... it's neat and it helps a bunch. use tin foil so nothing drops on you, you feels a vacume like suction and it pulls out all the wax... its nice if you have garlic oil at the end put some on a cotton ball and place in ear... another fun thing is we cut it the long way and you can see all the wax yuck but interesting... you can buy them online or in holistic stores

  • using a warm shower every morning also relies wax buildup. use a little H2O2 with cotton balls in the ear the night before and shower it all out the next morning. costs like 5 cents total.
