I never clean my ears. If I ever get too much wax buildup that I can't hear people, then I'll start doing it.

I'm with ya. Icky.

Kinda like saying "How often do you shower?" I never shower, if I get so filthy people don't want to be around me, then I'll start doing it.

once a day... I'm the same way with my hands though... my hands have to be clean, my ears have to be clear of blocks, I'm sure I'm obsessive compulsive in some other manner that I don't even think about

You only wash your hands once a day? Geez, it's people like you that spread disease.

Is this a thorough cleaning or just a good rubbing in the shower?

Because I always rub behind my ears in the shower, but only put something in the ear when the severe head-shaking does not get the water or wax out.

once an hour... and not just the typical normal person hand wash... the scrubbing/no speck of dirt can be on the hand... I'm sure it's gotta be abnormal

-EBOLA-...secure in being abnormal

As I was cleaning my ears this morning, I thought, "Hey, this would be a good thread to bump for Donger."

I clean my ears whenever the parasites begin to scratch too much.

Depends on what you are talking about. In the shower, I always get some warm water in them to loosen up wax, but I very rarely use a Q-tip. Wax is there for a reason...:D

Every time I shower. The hot moisture makes it easier to get out. Just don't ask how often I shower! :p

What?
To prevent bacteria, among other things, from entering the inner ear canal and infecting the ear drum area.

That is why you clean them, doofus; to get the bacteria out of the ear.

Note, they are self-cleaning....http://my.webmd.com/hw/ear_disorders/hw91119.asp?lastselectedguid={5FE84E90-BC77-4056-A91C-9531713CA348}

Has anyone here heard of "Ear Candling"...its where you take a hollow candle, light it, and it creates a vacuum that actually sucks the wax in to the candle.

Right, but many people misuse them by actually sticking them in to their ear canal.

:spock: Uhm, no. And I was quite content being completely ignorant on the subject.

Who on earth would even have the thought process to think up something like that? That is just, weird.

I was being sarcastic.

As to the misuse of q-tips, the canal is were my wax build up is. And I don't like wax build up. I have a hard enough time hearing as it is.

One would think that with building the Great Wall there would not be enough free time for them to think something like that up.....
