Home Remedy Alert! Excess earwax

PROBLEM: Excess earwax?  Try: drops and water

 

Soften the wax. Use an eyedropper to apply a few drops of baby oil, mineral oil, glycerin or hydrogen peroxide in your ear canal.

Use warm water. After a day or two, when the wax is softened, use a rubber-bulb syringe to gently squirt warm water into your ear canal. Tilt your head and pull your outer ear up and back to straighten your ear canal. When finished irrigating, tip your head to the side to let the water drain out.

Dry your ear canal. When finished, gently dry your outer ear with a towel or hand-held dryer.
