2-Ingredient Mixture To Effectively Eliminate Earwax And Ear Infections

Last updated on


Ear-cleanliness is one of the most overlooked aspects of everyday hygiene, mainly because people don’t notice build-up of earwax until hearing becomes a little dull. Since it has been revealed that Q-tips are not meant to be used as ear cleaners, we must find other solutions to clean the wax out of our ear drums.

There are many over-the-counter solutions to clean your ears that can be purchased in pharmacies, but we’re showing you an effective homemade remedy which provides far better results.

This remedy is completely natural and consists of white vinegar and rubbing alcohol.

Rubbing alcohol has been proven to eradicate 85% of aerobic bacterial contamination that it comes in contact with, making it an excellent disinfectant and cleaner. White vinegar is a powerful antibiotic and antimicrobial which effectively fights infection.

The combination of white vinegar and rubbing alcohol fights infections, dries the ear, breaks down earwax and does not cause any pain or discomfort when poured into the ear. It is recommended in cases of mild to moderate ear infection or wax build-up. However, if you experience more serious problems, consult your doctor.


Earwax And Ear Infections Home Remedy Recipe

As we previously mentioned, for the preparation of this remedy you will need white vinegar and rubbing alcohol.

Mix 1 part rubbing alcohol and 1 part white vinegar. Take a teaspoon (5 ml) of the mixture and slowly pour it into one ear by tilting your head to the opposite side. Stay in that position for 1 minute. After the minute has passed, allow the mixture to run out of the ear by sitting upright. Now do the same for the other ear.

Repeat the procedure two times a day to clear out trapped water, earwax and treat an ear infection.

Note:  In case you do not feel improvements in two days, please see your doctor! If there is pain, do not attempt this remedy but see your doctor.

This impressive home remedy has proved its benefits to many people, and we recommend you to try it in order to get rid of your ear wax or infection in a very short time.

    Years ago, as a camp nurse, I used this alcohol/white vinegar mixture to prevent swimmer’s ear. A couple of drops in each ear before the kids went swimming was all that was needed. Worked … swimmingly.

  2. You can also try Mullein Garlic Ear Oil from Herb Pharm. It combines olive oil and garlic. The key is to keep the ear canal moist. Vinegar and Alcohol may kill what is in there but if the tissue becomes dry it can crack and become infected, especially in cold weather, causing reinfection.
