Ear wax removal vinegar
No, don't do that! You've got the wrong condiment in mind. Of the two similar looking dispensers in the kitchen, the vinegar and the oil, you want the oil. Actually, there are better kinds of oil for the purpose, but the salad oil (olive or canola) off the table will do the job. Just take care to use it correctly. Here's how it's done. First wash your ear gently with soap and water. Let it dry thoroughly. Then, using an eyedropper or a teaspoon, let a few drops go into your ear as you incline your head sideways to keep the oil from running out. While your head is still inclined, take a grape size piece of cotton batting and twist it gently into your ear to form a plug. Do the other ear the same way, if it is a problem. Then continue your life for a day. Sleep overnight with the plug(s) in. Don't be alarmed by the hollow or distant sounds you hear. You might even hear some sloshing. Pull your plug(s) before your shower the next day, and do a complete (but always gentle) sudsing and rinsing of your ears. Avoid the temptation to accelerate the wax removal with the flat end of a toothpick. And if you can't resist the temptation, at least be super careful with the process. As your ear dries out after your shower, any remaining wax that was not rinsed out will reduce itself in volume and (ideally) separate from tissue surfaces. It may itch, or cause more strange sound sensations. After a couple hours, do a final rinsing. This should be all you need to rid yourself of the newly loosened excess ear wax (cerumen) accumulations. Remember, though, some of the stuff is quite normal and does useful things like protecting surfaces and lubricating moving parts. So, don't worry about removing every last trace. As for better oils to use, I think the best is Johnson & Johnson's Baby Oil, It is (obviously) safe enough for babies, gentle, and non-deteriorating. Others prefer "sweet almond oil." You can also find overpriced drug store concoctions supposedly formulated specifically for aural applications. One last caveat, though: if you are using anything with a food stuff component in it, take care not to let it become rancid in your ear. Do at least two good soap washes and water rinses to make sure the oil does not overstay its welcome. Good luck to you. Truly.
