I've had my ears 'irrigated' 2 or 3 times with the syringe (hydorgen peroxide and h20); much better than someone digging around with an ice cream scoop in your ears.

I use a q-tip after every shower (can't stand the feeling of water in my ears). And I probably use ear drops every 6 weeks or so...

q-tips just push the wax further in, they don't really clean - but I'm sure everyone wipes their ear after they shower

I like to use a Japanese ear pick every few days

This is what my doctor told me once when I went in and had a nice chunk of wax built up in my ear.

He suggested a hydrogen peroxide/water mixture and letting it soak in there for a bit of time...have been doing it ever since. Feels a bit odd but it is amazing how much crap it gets out.

Do you use a syringe or anything?
