Never put Q-tips in your ears! It says so on the box. Q-tips can damage your ears and push wax further down the canal, impacting it within your ear. A much better use for Q-tips is cleaning small, hard-to-reach places like the space in between your computer keys or the vents in your car.
Concerned with wax buildup in your ears? Over-the-counter ear drops (like Debrox) can be used to soften the wax and lower the chance of buildup. We can also remove wax in the office!
