When it comes to certain things, it is almost impossible for us to consider them important. Especially when it is something that makes us look bad at times. Ear wax is among such things. There is hardly a person on earth who wouldn’t want to get rid of it. After all, what function does it serve except for being a nuisance? While many would agree, it is quite far from truth. Your ear wax is just as important as anything else that comes naturally. As for the excessive wax, you will be surprised to find what can happen with a mixture of Alcohol and vinegar.

Vinegar
Ear wax serves to keep impurities away, according to Dr. Hill

In order to highlight the importance of earwax, we shall mention Dr. David Hill. He hosts EHow health, a YouTube channel with information regarding all health dilemmas. And as it happens, Dr. Hill also provided crucial information about the importance of earwax. According to him, ear wax essentially performed two functions. Firstly, it acted as a natural physical barrier to protect against dust and impure particles. Secondly, it acted as a chemical barrier to protect the inside. He also later told about what a mixture of Alcohol and vinegar can help achieve.

Instead of using cleaning sticks, a mixture of Alcohol and vinegar is safer.

Dr. Hill stressed about the delicacy of the skin inside our ears. By acting as a conveyor belt, it took care of the excessive wax by itself. He also pointed out the dangers of using cleaning sticks. Those actually shoved the wax further inside, which could end up damaging some delicate part.

The inside of the ear is quite delicate and needs extra care.

So, does that mean that there is no way of dealing with wax if one wanted? Not at all. Dr. Hill told about a simple technique that was safe and reliable. According to him, taking a mixture of Alcohol and vinegar and adding a few drops inside the ear could clean up the wax. However, one needed to be cautious. A doctor had to perform the procedure to assure that it remained safe. After all, there are only so many chances that you can take with your ear’s safety.
