How to clean ears for ear impression?

Hi guys, I went to do an ear impression today but was told my ear wax was blocking so I had to have it removed before I do the impression. Any idea where I can clean my ears and for how much? Thanks.

do not use cotton bud, it may push the wax deeper.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/ukne...-deafness.html


"Items such as cotton wool buds usually push wax down further which can cause it to become compacted and even harder to remove.

"It could also irritate the thin lining of the ear canal and in rare cases even perforate the ear drum if it is pushed in too far or accidentally nudged."

well... sometimes thing just happen... generally people use cotton bud

is like people cross the road, just some unlucky outlier got hit by a vehicle...


imo I find the audiclean spray more hazardous, the pressure is quite strong, and is very uncomfortable

Tell family member use earpick and scrape out the ear wax? That is, unless you have wet type ear wax
