All things ear wax related here.
Once had a bit of ear wax as big as a small pea just fall out of my ear.
Think I stood too close to a speaker stack at Arca's Hackney gig. Finally got 20/20 hearing back.
getting ears syringed I got a bit that was like a large raisin
probably closer to a sultana in colour actually
I've had countless ear infections and two cotton buds get stuck in my ear (one had to be removed by a doctor) over the last 5 years because I have a total obsession with cleaning my ears out. just can't stop. even if you take cotton buds away from me I'll use pen lids or hair slides :/
disgusting habit but picked it up when I was young and not going to stop now fuck off
how does one do the olive oiling?
Go to Boots, buy a pipet, then buy some olive oil and some cotton buds.
Get a drop or two of the oil in your pipet, lie on your side, flush it straight into your ear, and leave it for two minutes. Use a cotton bud to soak up the excess oil (I find pulling the fibres slightly apart beforehand helps), then do the other ear.
I cook it on a teaspoon over a gas hob and pretend I'm prepping some smack.
it's not unpleasant.
Also once made a home made syringing kit - take the head off your shower and stick an empty biro tube in there. You control the flow by clamping your hand around the join. Can even pulse it like the real thing
