How often do you clean your ears? Doctors always tell us to use q-tips and do it frequently because of wax build up. But I recently found out that you shouldn't use q-tips at all. I rarely used q tips and would just get my ears drained eventually lol. I always had a fear of sticking a Q-tip too far into the ear canal because it can cause a ruptured eardrum. I came across these ear cleaners and I am glad that I did because now I clean my ears weekly because of this product. Clinere are ear cleaners that basically "scoop" the ear wax of out of your ear (in the appropriate areas of your ears to clean). I know that sounds gross but hey this is my health post for the week! Ear wax can be beneficial or harmful. Ear wax is always going to be needed because it products ears from infection but too much of it can produce hearing loss and do more harm to the ears with ear wax blockage.
Clinere uses a spoon on one end to actually get the ear wax out and a bendable brush at the end to exfoliate and get the rest of the ear wax that you couldn't pick up with the flexible "spoon." I have been using these scoopers for a few months and I actually feel like I have fun with cleaning my ears and realized that you don't need to clean your ears daily but once a week is fine enough. Lol. It seems that when you have a tool that cleans and doesn't make you bored and don't have a risk of going into your ear canal. Why not try it out? You can see below how to use clinere and see how it gets the ear wax at the right part of your ear without you risking to harm to ear or ear canal. It does not go into the ear canal but grabs wax closes to the outside of your ear.
Ear wax protects the lining of the ear from infection. Removing wax dries out the lining of the ear, causing tiny cracks that can let bacteria inside. Considering that q-tips don't really remove most wax from the ears they push it farther inside these can be a great alternative or you can use a couple drops of olive oil.
I am learning more and more ways to take care of my body without forgetting and this has helped me realized that there are different ways to clean your ears. So even if you don't want to use these scoopers you could use a wash cloth around the ear after getting out the shower. Depending on ear wax blockage you can hydrogen peroxide to soften the ear wax or a few drops of baby oil, mineral oil, or commercial drops according to the American Academy of Otolaryngology.
You can find these cleaners at Target, Walmart, Walgreens and other drug stores. They were reasonable priced and worth it! Cleaning ears are one of the normal routines that we forget. You don't have to have use q-tips or forget to clean your ears -- with this alternative. How often do you clean your ears?
