does this actually work? It doesn't, does it. Or does it?
It needs to be warmed a bit though
i guess it would for lubricating your ears
but if you've got a significant build up, that's not going to be enough. You'll need a syringing.
I sound like Colin from the Brittas Empire.
I hate the syringing: completely disorientated afterwards. Last time I ended up walking round in circles unable to find my way out of the doctors surgery and ending up in a cupboard.
It felt like I'd got super-hearing.

You just push the wax into your brain and end up like ca... um cathy dennis or something.
THINK ABOUT IT
it happened to me once. i couldn't hear for weeks and my ear went all crusty because it was dry as. dry as.
tried to think of a joke about Popeye being nagged by his wife but it's a waste of my time and yours
is this normal behaviour?
So I guess it would work.
the man is a deviant and must be stopped
with some chopped tomatoes and garlic.
in lieu of anything else to hand. worked fine.
if that doesn't work, try sodium bicarb.
i've got narrow ear canals and i had them syringed for the first time this year. really don't want to have to do it again, it hurt afterwards for weeks.
Surely sunflower oil would be more cost effective? Or if you're feeling alternative, just go for groundnut oil?
Get some scotch bonnet chillis in there warny.
Otex makes everything worse
Roll up a piece of paper put it in your ear and set it on fire, the vacuum it creates sucks the wax out, I think this is a real thing I saw on tv once
Oh wait Wikipedia says it is both dangerous and ineffective
you can get some chinese candle things, which do what you are suggesting, without the riskof setting your face on fire
a few drops in both ears should loosen up the wax and it should just fall out on it's own.
My mum once heated up oil and dropped it in my ear. I heard it pop, It didnt pop again for about 15 years. Don't do this.
3 or 4 applications over a two day period and BAM! no more wax. unless you got serious blockage
and lukewarm water is perfect
a man i used to care for had this prescribed
had to go and pick up tiny bottles of olive oil from the doctors.. surreal
