How to Clean Ears with Oxygenated Water
Earwax is a natural substance produced in the ear canal to keep the ears dry and protect them from bacteria and infections. In reality, normal activities such as chewing and speaking help with time the flaking and the elimination of excess wax, which makes the cleaning of the ears a fundamentally aesthetic operation. Cleaning your ears with hydrogen peroxide and taking care of your health, clean the earth, removing any excess of ear wax that could compromise your hearing.
Perform a cleaning with oxygenated water
1) Organized an arrangement for cleaning the ears.
You will have to lie down during the operation, so it is important to collect everything you need and keep it handy. Lay a towel on the shelf on which you will rest your head. Then, at a distance of about 30 cm, place a small bowl of 3% hydrogen peroxide, a dropper and a towel.
2) Lying on your back, with your head bent sideways and resting on the towel you’ve placed.
Tilt your head so that the ear you want to clean is facing the ceiling.
3) Put the towel on your shoulder.
Before starting to clean, place the towel on the shoulder at the ear you want to treat. This towel will prevent your clothes from getting stained and will absorb the solution used to wash your ear.
You could also place a piece of plastic under the towel before starting so that the clothes and the shelf do not get dirty. 4 JULY 2018

4) Take 1-3 ml of 3% hydrogen peroxide and drop the drops into the ear canal.
You could feel fizzy, which is perfectly normal. If you should feel a little tickle, try to relax. Leave the solution to act, keeping the ear facing up for 3-4 minutes.
If it helps, you can pull the upper edge of the ear to open the ear canal more as you put the drops.
Do not push the dropper into the ear canal while administering drops. The ear canal is sensitive and easily damaged by excessive pressure.
5) Drain your ear on the towel.
When the time comes, take the towel on your shoulder and press it against your ear. Sit down, keeping your head tilted on the towel to let out the solution and the excess wax, which should be visible at this point. Dry the outside of the ear with a towel, if necessary.
Repeat the cleaning operations on the other ear.
6) Use the shower method when you have little time available.
Put a few drops of hydrogen peroxide in each ear 10 minutes before taking a shower. You will not have to lie down. The hydrogen peroxide will soften the earwax, which will be removed while you take a shower as usual. When you dry, swab the outside of the ear with a clean towel.
7) In the beginning, clean the ears with hydrogen peroxide twice a week.
The ear wax is normal and actually has antibacterial properties that keep the ears healthy. For most people with a normal earwax production, it is not necessary to clean their ears more than twice a week. After a two-week cleaning cycle for two weeks, clean the ears twice a month and then, after two months, clean them twice a year.
Talk to your doctor about cleaning your ears. Cleaning your ears too often can be risky, so discuss with your doctor why you would clean your ears regularly.
Ask your doctor about ear cleaning kits, such as Debrox.
8) Avoid using cotton swabs in your ears.
Normally, the ear wax covers a third of the outside of the ear canal and in fact, the cotton buds do nothing but push deeper what should come out. Over time, this leads to the formation of obstructions near the eardrum, caused by the compacted earwax, which in fact interfere with hearing.
Likewise, doctors warn against using other common items for cleaning ears, such as hairpins.
9) Avoid cleaning with hydrogen peroxide if you have ventilation pipes.
If you have had surgery to insert ventilation tubes, do not use hydrogen peroxide to clean your ears. Ventilation tubes help to heal recurrent ear infections by creating a permanent hole through the eardrum, to ensure air inlet into the middle ear. Cleaning with hydrogen peroxide would allow the solution to penetrate into the middle ear, making it easier for complications or infections to arise.
If you have ventilation tubes, use a handkerchief to clean the ears and remove any excess wax that reaches the entrance to the ear canal. It completely avoids the entry of water into the ears.
10) Go to the doctor if you feel pain in your ears or if you have secretions.
If on one hand, the ear wax is normal, on the other hand, an excessive wax production associated with ear pain or unusual-looking secretions requires a medical examination. Even a hot ear to the touch, perhaps accompanied by fever, is a good reason to make an appointment.
