If you feel like you have a possible ear wax clog in your ear; try putting some warm water in your ear to soften the wax. Then using a bulb syringe (those things commonly used to suck mucous out of baby's noses) or if your desperate a turkey baster, try sucking the wax out of the ear canal. TWO VERY IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER: #1. Don't stick the tube too far into your ear so as not to rupture your tympanic membrane (ear drum), this is why the turkey baster might be a better idea. #2 Make sure you push the bulb before inserting the tube. You don't want to blow the wax further into your ear you want to suck it out. Hope this helps.
