I have found that mixing 1 teaspoon of white vinegar and 1 teaspoon of rubbing alcohol in a bowl and putting mixture into a eye dropper works well too. MAKE SURE IT IS WARM, if it is cold or hot it will cause dizziness. If you buy actual ear drop this is what you can do: first, warm the drops to body temperature by rolling the container in your hands or placing it in a cup of warm water for a few minutes. Inserting cold ear drops can cause pain and dizziness. Have the person lie down, ear facing up. Place 2 or 3 drops on the wall of the ear canal so air can escape and drops can get to the ear. Gently wiggling the outer ear will help. You may find it easier to insert ear drops in a small child's ear by holding the child on your lap with his or her legs around your waist and head down on your knees. If possible, remain in this position for 2 to 3 minutes.

I am currently using the alcohol and vinegar remedy right now and I'm really hoping that this will work because. I have been so miserable all day.

I just came back from the doctors and he recommended a solution of 3 parts rubbing alcohol and one part white vinegar. I haven't tried it yet because I have to clear up my ear infection first.

I read this and havent tried it either. Might work, might not. Is this as stupid a post as the others who said nothing? Yes it is.
