Cleaning Your Ears? Here Are Some Alternatives to the Cotton Swab

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.
