4 ways not to clean your ears
- Push a cloth right through and pull backwards and forwards forcefully, assuming of course you can see Australia though your ears!
- Poke anything to hand into your ears like hairclips, tools, pen, finger or finger nail. This can cause nasty damage and an infection can easily occur.
- Using cotton buds will result in the wax being pushed deeper into the ear canal. Often break-off and remain lodged in the ear.
- Water syringing can cause irritation and pain. In addition, wax can be forced onto the ear drum and it’s a messy and time consuming process. Worst of all, it can cause permanent damage!
