No. They push all that guck back into your ears. My daddy had to go to the hospital because he used them things all the time and it pushed the wax farther and farther back until he couldnt hear outta that ear. He had surgerey done to it.
No they are NOT good. They can scratch and perforate your ear drum. To clean your ears, lay on your side and put hydrogen peroxide in them. It feels really weird but sit for about 10 minutes then drain. Put a drop of olive oil in your ear to keep wax soft. If your ears are really clogged then you need to go to the doctor to have them flushed.
When they flush your ears, they take a big syringe and connect it to a short piece of IV tube. They put the tube in your ear and squirt saline solution, which will irrigate and flush out wax.
Not really. They can irritate the inside of your ear, and the cheap ones have this bad habit of cotton shredding and then you have this cotton s*** all up in your ear that could stay there and cause infections.
