"Nick if i don't use cotton buds how do I clean my ears"
The answer is easy if you understand the basic bio mechanics of what happens in your ear canal.
Why do we produce ear wax
1 For Cleaning
2 For Lubrication
3 It's Antibacterial
The skin in you ear canal is like a conveyor belt it is always moving to the outside of your ear. The idea being that any debris.dirty,dry skin,hair will stick to the wax and slowly be removed
Ear wax has many moisturising qualities to help your ear canal stay in tip top condition
If you keep removing it you will just produce more. and more !
Because ear wax is slightly acidic and is made up of fatty acids this help resist certain bacteria and fungal growths.
So there you have it mother nature has given us a simple device to transmit sound down. That if left alone in most people will self clean. So the next time you notice some ear wax at the opening of you ear canal. Don't go diving in with a cotton bud to remove it. The wax has been on a 9-12 month journey just remove with a soft tissue or warm flannel wrapped over your little finger
