It is but a habit, cleaning the ears after taking a bath. As they say, it is the best time to clean the ears. However, a friend told me, if ears are to be cleaned everyday, chances are, it will get irritated. Hence, ears should be clean at least twice a week. How about you, which do you prefer - to clean it everyday or twice a week? Do you clean your ears everyday?

Every time I take a shower My rag goes into my ears to be cleaned out. I heard that is too much cleaning and could remove the good wax needed to keep out infection. I would not really know about this. I hav eto clean my ears when I shower it is a habit I cna't break.

I have to clean my ears everyday, if I don't I feel gross. I too have heard it's not good to clean them everyday but old habits die hard I guess!

I too clean my ears every after i take a bath and my bf always tell me that it's really not good because the ear wax may be all removed from the ears causing our ears to not have a lubricant. I love cleaning it everyday because i really don't want my ears to look dirty..but now, im trying to change that habit.

My ears are fine and I clean them everyday. First with shampoo and then when I'm out of the shower I use a q tip. Its just part of my routine. My ears are usually always clean.

I clean my ears almost every morning, however I sort of need to. I am a very light sleeper and therefore always need to wear ear plugs to bed. When I wake up, it almost always feels necessary to clean my ears out because of this. No signs of irritation yet :)
