GOOD ADVICE—WHEN WE DON’T TRY IT ANYWAY! OUCH! 🙂
There is one basic lesson in ear hygiene. Do not stick the Q-tip completely in your ear! The Q-tip isn’t a wax backhoe. It’s designed for the less sensitive, easy to reach, exterior parts of the ear. Despite this easy to remember maxim, we humans persist, do we not, jabbing our cotton swabs of death into battle against the brown foes of wax and gunk.
Q-tip rules are ones we learn at a very young age. This is not the kind of thing society has deemed relevant for the syllabuses of 9th grade health classes. “Today we’ll be talking about how a man has a ‘you know what’ and a woman’s got a ‘thing a mabob’ and the proper method of cleaning your ears with a Q-tip.” Ear cleaning with cotton swabs should be learned before we know anything about human reproduction, beer, flip-flops, constipation, colors, or osmosis.
