Ears need a cleaning!

Whats good to clean out the ears? My ears crackle and pop a ton and feel somewhat full. I'd like to clean them out and feel great.

  • Spray with a gentle saline solution when you're getting into the shower and make a habit of it, every night.

  • I use peroxide. I lay down on that side and let it sit for about 3 minues. If it tickles really bad then its doing the job! Usually when I turn my head the built up wax falls right out! Gross, I know, I'm sorry!

  • There is also a product (name escapes me at this time) that dissolves it. At the pharmacy, otc.

  • You can buy one of those "nose suckers" that you get for a newborn and fill that up with water, then flush out your ears. Tilt your head, squirt it into the side of your ear rather than directly in, and then be shocked with what comes out. LOL

  • DO I use straight peroxide?
