Just curious what other posters do to clean out the wax in their ears? What works for you? What's not so effective? I'm always looking for new techniques and thought I might tap into the collective wisdom of this fine forum.

I recently read that ear wax can cause hearing AND memory loss. So this is a hot topic.

One step...have your medical professionals remove the wax each visit. AND if you have a crazy build up issue...then try and make the med professionals record and change your Ear Care to address the issue.

There is some type of "corkscrew" apparatus available that is advertised on the boobtube. I just have never found it at the store.

And TNX...it is nice to find a nice civil spot in this website to discuss matters of concern.

I read that in the middle ages that people would save their ear wax and use it as lip balm in the winter.
Yuck!!!

One thing about Qtips. My daughter got a staff infection in her ear and the ear doctor guy blamed it on Qtips. Not saying, just saying.
