Your ear canals DO NOT REQUIRE REGULAR CLEANING. The ear actually does its own cleaning when dead skin and wax are gradually pushed outwards when you are chewing or swallowing. It is your clumsy attempts to scratch your ears or clean them with crude tools that actually interferes with this mechanism and causes the debris to ball up and block the ears. Certain hirsute individuals need help as the profuse hair in the ear canal will impede the elimination of dead cells and wax outwards. These individuals are advised to purchase ear grooming kits and use them to regularly trim this hair to keep the ear canals patent.
Any Ear cleaning has to be done by a professional...an ENT Surgeon at his/her clinic!
