Cleaning our ears is one serious and delicate business. Swabbing a tad too rough and deep will surely do harm to your sense of hearing. Although some believe that cotton swabs are safe to use for cleaning ears, it actually isn’t. Sticking anything foreign in the ear canal actually increases the risk of damaging the ear canal. Instead of taking out ear wax, cotton swabs can push excess ear wax deeper into the ear canal, leading to blockage, and ultimately, impaired hearing.
If using cotton swabs is not advisable, what then, would be the best method to use when ridding our ears of wax? Fortunately though, there are some relatively easy home remedies for ridding your ears of wax buildup.
This video shows some tips on how to safely clean your ears:
Aside from knowing what methods to use for cleaning our ears, another point of consideration is actually when to clean our ears. Ear wax, or cerumen, is not harmful; in fact, it actually functions in keeping the ears clean, so removing it frequently can also cause bacterial infections to occur. So the next time you clean your ears, make sure to keep these things in mind and it doesn’t hurt to try these easy home remedies.
