Drunk When cleaning out your ears, with which ear do you start

Bored on sunday. Whilest cleaning my ears I noticed that I always start with my right ear. Do you do the same or is it because I am righthanded?

Re: When cleaning out your ears, with which ear do you start

Joost, you do know you must stop pushing the cotton bud when there is resistance

Might explain the poll

[nicked I know ]

Don't put anything in my ears I think removing wax causes more wax to be generated and therefore it becomes an endless cycle. Like the first time you shave Mind you, in the past I did give it a go and all I can remember is having ear infections and ear aches I guess it's an individual thing and depends from one person to another, but no I don't like putting cotton buds in my ears. When and if my hearing deteriorates or if I feel they are blocked, I could always go to the GP and get them syringed

Wow Kurzon,
Really serious stuff . I don't use cotton tips, they scare the begeezers out of me. It's a small metal round hook designed just for this purpose, or am I talking like D Beckham now

That's the first I've heard of a metal hook thingy I must look out for it when in a Chemist/Pharmacy... as you've got me curious

Re: When cleaning out your ears, with which ear do you start

Yuk! I don't think you could legally buy a metal hook for removing ear wax yourself. Too dangerous! I do remember going to hospital once when I was a nipper though, because my ears had become horribly blocked with wax that had hardened to a solid black mass. Euurrghhhh!! Very painful and the stuff that came out was disgusting .

But having your ears gently syringed is second only to having a head massage...mmmmm .

Crazed Re: When cleaning out your ears, with which ear do you start

Hmm... the poll didn't really suit me...

I'm lefthanded but I always start with my right ear... but then again there are only two things I do with my left hand, one of them is writing........

Right handed, but eat left handed.

Right ear first though as for some bizarre reason cleaning my left ear starts me on a coughing fit Probably tied up with my sinuses, either that or I am just plane strange

Same here. Seems your ear tubes are connected with your air intake valves

Right first, then left. Often, right again and then left again.

Re: When cleaning out your ears, with which ear do you start

Left-handed, and I start with my left ear. I tend to sleep on my left side and usually get more stuff out of my left ear, so I reckon it settles there during the night.

I use cutlery and play guitar like a right-handed person, though.
