Hydrogen Peroxide: Don't recommend that you start pouring chemicals into your ears. The higher the concentration the more chance there is for tissue damage. If you are having ear problems consider seeing an ENT Dr. Products like Murine, Auro & Debrox contain Carbamide Peroxide. They are made to clean ears. If you use these - follow directions on box. Some people do use Hydrogen peroxide to loosen ear wax.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
