Do you use Q-Tips to clean your ears after a shower? Let me guess; you’ve probably heard it’s not a good idea, but you still do it anyways. Am I right?
Using Q-Tips to clean your ears is not only dangerous, it’s also completely unnecessary as your ears are self-cleaning.
Putting small items into your ear canals can cause cuts, dryness, hearing bone dislocation, eardrum perforation, ringing in the ears, dizziness and hearing loss. Scary!
Believe it or not, your ear wax is a good thing! It keeps your ears lubricated and protected from dirt, dust, or any other objects that may get into your canals.
So, while cleaning your ears with Q-Tips can be satisfying, you may want to consider letting nature take it’s course instead.
