Wax Vac Wants You to Stick it in Your Ear

Wax Vac is a tiny vacuum designed to suck earwax and moisture from your ear canal. According to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, “Doctors strongly discourage using cotton swabs or ear candling to remove earwax and say that unless it’s causing bothersome symptoms, earwax should be left alone.”

Anything you stick in your ear can potentially puncture your eardrum or cause other serious damage. This danger does not stop most folks from using cotton swabs and even less appropriate methods to clean their ears, including hair pins and ear candles. Look at the scary earwax removal tools you can buy on Walmart.

If excess earwax is a persistent problem, and you don’t want to use tiny prospector’s tools and go mining for gold, Wax Vac might be worth a try.
