1. Warm Water
Flushing your ear with warm water will also help get rid of excess earwax. The gentle force of the water will dislodge the wax, making it easier to remove. Be sure to use only clean and filtered water.
- Warm water
- Fill a rubber-bulb syringe with slightly warm water.
- Tilt your head upright and pull the outer ear to straighten the ear canal.
- Use the syringe to put a small amount of water into the ear canal.
- Leave it for a minute and then drain it out by tilting your head to the opposite side.
- Clean away the water and earwax with a clean cloth.
- A few drops of glycerin
- A medicine or ear dropper
- Rubbing alcohol.
- Combine glycerin with about a teaspoon of water.
- Draw the solution into the dropper.
- Tilt your head, and add several drops to your ear. Stay in this position for about 5 minutes.
- Tilt your head in the opposite direction to allow the solution to drain out.
- Pat your ear dry using a towel and then add about 3 drops of rubbing alcohol into your ear.
3. Olive Oil
- Organic Olive Oil
- Cotton ball
- 1 ½ tsp of organic olive oil
- Syringe (olive oil won’t drop very well from a cotton ball unless you soak it)
- Drop 2 or 3 drops of olive oil into the ear that has an earwax buildup and again, lie with this ear to the ceiling for about 10 minutes then flip on to your other side and let the olive oil drain.
- Definitely lie on top of a clean rag, or paper towel with this remedy because oil will stain fabric.
4. Apple Cider Vinegar And Rubbing Alcohol
- Medicine or ear dropper
- Two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
- Two tablespoons of rubbing alcohol
- Two cotton balls
- Washcloth or small towel.
- Mix the rubbing alcohol and apple cider vinegar together in a small bowl or cup.
- Pour the solution into your dropper.
- Lie down, keeping the affected ear upwards, and use the dropper to place the solution into it.
- Place a cotton ball in each ear, and allow the mixture to sit in the ears to break the wax down for a few minutes.
- Remove the cotton balls and then hold the towel or washcloth to your ear.
- Turn your ear face down and remain in this position, allowing the fluid to drain out.
- Repeat as often as needed for relief.
5. Baking Soda
- ¼ tsp of baking soda
- 2 tsp of warm water
- Cotton ball or syringe
- Simple put 2-3 drops in your ear.
- Let is sit for 5 minutes and then lie down with your clogged ear facing down and let your earwax and baking soda mixture drain naturally.
