I know that most of us people always want to get rid of earwax yeah it is true that earwax is disgusting to look and smell so bad and too much earwax can cause a problem of conducting hearing loss so we better clean our ears everyday.:-0 I always clean my ears with cottonbuds after taking a bath but I do it gently because I was once infected because I just push it so bad and the result was Infection.HOw about you?do you clean your ears everyday? do you use earwax remover or cotton buds? thanks.feel free to leave a comment.:-0

Dont know if this is true but I was always led to believe that ear wax forms as its the bodys natural way of self cleansing. I dont know if thats true? I do know however from once cleaning my ears out with cotton buds that I pushed the things too far into my ear and ended up with ear ache that lasted at least a couple of days. Since then I've never used the things. Instead now when I'm in the shower or the bath I use a warm flannel and just gently wipe the outer part of my ear which usually takes care of any wax/

i do also clean my ears every time i finish my bath..... but i heard someone told me that the proper way of cleaning it, is 1s a 2months... and according to her its an advise from a doctor.... is it true? Because me myself cant believe that.. if you wait 2 months before you clean your ears, you will get ear stone.. not earwax... lol...

I clean my ears with cottonbuds like...5 times a day. It has become my habit I cannot live without bringing cottonbuds with me. I'm aware that this isn't healthy because I've read before that we shouldn't clean our ears everyday because the natural wax in our ears acts as protectant. But I couldn't get out from this habit. My ears even hurt because of constant cleaning.

i use a q-tip atleast once a day. I do it when i get out of the shower. i also will do it if my ears start to bother me. if i dont do it my ears feel dirty. my doctor always said dont stick anything in your ear smaller than your elbow but he is crazy if he thinks i am going to listen. i will also have my mom do a really good cleaning of my ears every 6 months or so. it feels so good. and i think i can hear even better the few days after

No i donot clean the ears daily, it is not necessary at all, if the buds are reused it might cause infection, i clean once in a fortnight using fresh cotton buds only, i never suffered from infection... Thanks for sharing. Welcome always. Cheers. Prof

i always clean my ears every after taking my shower to make it clean, normally i use cotton buds to clean the area though sometimes i use earwax remover also. i dont normally push it too hard coz theres a tendency that the wax will go inside so just a circle stroke inside is already ok, thats why we need to use earwax remover sometimes even just once a month to really take off the wax inside instead of pushing the buds.

Yes, I do clean my ears everyday with cotton buds after I shower. It has become a very bad habit. I clean even if my ears aren't dirty. I watched a news before that it's not healthy to clean your ears everyday because earwax are supposed to be protectants. It's not also good to clean using cotton buds because it only pushes the wax further inside your ears which may lead to deafness. According to the news, we should only clean our ears once a month and a specialist should do it using a syringe. As for me, after watching that news I planned to stop cleaning my ears everyday but I couldn't get around to doing it. ;D

Yes i do clean my ears everyday. ITs not good to have earwax in it and its not good to look at. You will still dirty if you never clean up your ears with cotton buds. Just do it slowly so that you will not hurt. Remember its good to be clean always. Very refreshing!

it is good to do earwax...BUT only after sone time periods...not daily. I always used to do on every sundays. In between no time to clean ears. I think its not necessary to clean every day and it will not affect anything. So always clean ears every after 15 days. NO PROBLEM.
